Waichulis Form Box

Waichulis Form Box**
(No Longer Commercially Available)

The Waichulis Form Box is a learning device that contains several basic geometric solids, or ‘forms’, that can be configured in a variety of ways to compare and contrast the way light describes them.

Companion Text Sample

*Companion Text CD-Rom files are in PDF format. A Windows or Mac computer, Adobe Reader, and printer capable of producing text and graphics required.

Individual forms may be removed from the box for isolated study. Six pieces within the box, the Sphere, Sphere-housing block, Cone, 2 Cone-housing pieces, and a Rectilinear/Curvilinear Cubical solid, are made from a highly durable urethane casting resin that has been formulated with an anti-UV element. The resin forms a bright white polymer selected because of its excellent toughness, stability and ability to handle mild solvents. The seventh piece (The Cylinder) is made from a piece of durable Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC).

Form Box Surface Variations

*The Form Box is cast and refined by hand. While there is a great amount of consistency of the overall forms, expect some surface variation due to the casting process. The latest version includes an updated plastic sphere with less surface variation.
