Intro To Additive Manufacturing Student Lesson Plan Bundle


Out of stock

An exciting new STEM curriculum kit that will bring any classroom to life! Future mechanical and manufacturing engineers will love this engaging, hand-on and kinesthetic learning experience.

The program includes five curriculum packs complete with 13 lesson plans for use with the Mayku FormBox. Each lesson plan has been put together by experienced design & technology teachers and includes comprehensive step by step guides with images, downloads and links. Designed for students aged 11-14 and above, with a focus on teaching STEM subjects through design and practical work in the classroom. Easy for any teacher to pick up and use without prior familiarity with the machine.

Explore Basic Design and Manufacturing Principles! The FormBox is a minature version of a giant mass manufacturing process. With it you can expose students to the whole product creation process all the way through from design to manufacture. Vacuum forming tools are an application that is usually overlooked when exploring production tooling using additive manufacturing. Without this versatile manufacturing process, life-saving medical devices, food packaging, and automobiles might look very different.

  • Teach innovation and entrepreneurship

  • Make complicated ideas tangible

  • Build self-confidence and motivation

  • Encourage student collaboration

This all inclusive bundle provides everything your student needs to get creating. The FormBox is your very own desktop production line. Whether you’re crafting by hand or partnering with your 3D printer, the FormBox fits perfectly into your workspace, so you can create a factory finish without the factory. Just attach your vacuum cleaner, and you have industrial grade vacuum forming at home or in the classroom. Bring the power of the factory to you. With simple, easy-to-use, smart settings, the FormBox will get you the exact finish you want. The ceramic heater has a range of 160c to 340c, preparing your plastic to form. Carefully placed fans keep the FormBox running cool, meaning it works with a world of materials. A super fine mesh increases airflow to the 3D shape, placed on the bed, which is made from pressed steel for extra strength.

The student curriculum bundle includes all required materials:

    • FormBox
    • 20 sheets of Mayku cast
    • 20 sheets of Mayku form
    • Universal vacuum connector
    • Your first making kit
