When the trays are pulled down, an automatic trigger will turn on the suction of your connected vacuum cleaner.

Kickstarter gave us our first 1,700 customers, spanning across 71 countries, and the number just keeps on rising. Join thousands of makers worldwide on our mission to bring manufacturing back home.
We are currently taking pre-orders for the US, UK and EU.
For creating molds, the Mayku FormBox works best with thermoplastic sheets of 0.25 - 1.5mm in thickness.
For casting, we’ve found the following to be great materials to work with: Concrete, Silicone, Chocolate, Jello, Resin, Ice, Foam, Jesmonite, Plaster
Our online store will be coming in April 2018, where you can buy a range of materials. Or if you prefer, you will be available to purchase third party materials at your local hobby store or online retailer.
