When creating thermoforming template for the Mayku FormBox, you must consider two aspects: designing a suitable template and selecting the right manufacturing method.

Before getting started on any thermoforming project, it is essential to understand the design principles that apply to thermoforming templates. This will allow you to transform your idea into a real product as effectively and efficiently as possible. In this guide, we examine the main design principles of thermoforming.
