A friend let me stay in his apartment during one of my stays at OpenFab. He has a good bed, a cat and nice books. So you know, I wanted to thank him. My mom raised me right.
I used the TabbedBox extension to build the vector file on inkscape, inspired by Nicolas. After generating the box with the correct parameters (size, kerf, etc), I added a little bit of text, a good meme, a hole for the bag’s spout, and a removable bottom.
I put a 3mm mdf in the lasercut:
- Engrave in orange = for the slide, then I trimmed the wood with a thin cisel. Setting : fill + fast
- Cut = green for the first cut. Black for the final cut. Why ? This way your wood doesn’t move during the small cuts.
After that, I flipped the side of one of the panels, and engraved the grumpy cat’s meme. (thanks Dewi for your help)
- Make a bigger hole for the bag’s spout.
- Add a nice varnish.
- Don’t do it last minute.
- Design a better refill system.
