FormBox Desktop Vacuum Former: Suck Mold, Then Make Molds

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  May 4, 2016


You can find guides online for building small vacuum formers, and you can also get cheap ones that need both an oven and a vacuum cleaner to work. But if you’re willing to pay a bit more for convenience, Mayku’s FormBox may fit your needs.

The FormBox has built-in heating elements so you won’t need an oven, just a vacuum cleaner for the molding process. It will also come with 30 thermoplastic sheets so you can experiment with the machine right away. Mayku also has bundles that come with some concrete and casting resin.

Aside from its heftier price, perhaps FormBox’s only other downside is its small build volume, which is 7.9″cu.in.

Pledge at least $349 (USD) on Kickstarter to receive a FormBox as a reward.
