The Mayku Formbox lets you quickly and easily make a detailed mold of a 3 dimensional object. It's an industrial grade vacuum former in a desktop model.
Vacuum forming is the oldest method of thermoforming, and refers to the use of a vacuum to remove the air between heated plastic material and a template. The subsequent vacuum causes the plastic material to fully conform to a template, capturing details, shape, and other features.
It's a three step process:
Vacuum forming is a great choice for the creation of parts, tools, or objects that have thin and consistent walls. Other types of thermoforming, such as pressure forming, are better suited to thicker objects, varying wall thickness, or objects that require higher levels of detail.
It is also important to remember several design principles when creating vacuum formed parts. For example, overhangs should be avoided, as they will prevent you from being able to remove your object when it is finished.
