This tutorial will show you how to make a laser cut organizer box from wood. This classroom tool was made in order to be able to organize small objects, such as nuts, bolts, and screws.
The online tool, MakerCase was used to design and specify the box’s dimensions.
This is for the Fab Learning Academy Week 4 assignment.
The following materials and software were used for this project:
The type of box will need to be selected on the MakerCase website. This will allow you to create a box that has dividers. This will let you create a box for organizing different small objects.
Use MakerCase to customize the dimensions of each part of the box. The spaces created by the dividers should be spacious enough to hold small items such as nuts and bolts.
The box needs to have at least four or five dividers so various objects can be sorted into the box.
The following dimensions were selected to allow for a small, but spacious box for organizing small items such as nuts, bolts, and screws.
Width: 4 inches
Height: 3 inches
Depth: 14 inches
After the box's dimensions are adjusted, an SVG file of the box should be generated for laser cutting.
After the file is generated, it can then be cut on the laser cutter. Some settings may need to be adjusted, such as the line thickness (most need to be set at hairline thickness) and the labels on the SVG can also be deleted (i.e., Top, Left, etc.).
