NOT INCLUDED: 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. The program utilizes these forms for many of the lessons. While it is no longer available commercially through the Waichulis Studio Store, the forms box can be 3D printed. The plans are available on the Thingiverse website here:
