studio myfirst: myfirst roto moulder

‘myfirst roto moulder’ is a flat pack DIY rotational moulding machine created by studio myfirst.  here the design offers the ability to replicate the manufacturing process by giving designers, artists and creative’s alike the chance to experiment and develop their ideas. with the use of moulds and cold setting resins, hollow plastic objects can be formed on the machine time and time again. according to studio myfirst, education of this process is normally difficult to achieve given the large size and cost of an actual rotational moulding machine, leaving the most common method of education coming from text books. the machines take up little space with the ability to deconstruct for ease of storage and transportation.
