a place to shine a light on the work of students and teachers
I wanted to create my own box after Pete showed us how to on Monday. I found an outline for one on Pinterest, so I snapped a picture and imported the picture into Rhino 6. I then created the geometry from scratch. I found some nice paper and then arranged 10 copies on a 12'' by 12'' page. The two halves of the heart interlock to hold the top of the box closed. For the the bottom and tabs of the box I used a little bit of glue.
It took right at 3 minutes to etch and cut all 10 boxes, using a 60W Universal laser. I used a small bit of tape on one of the corners to make sure the air flow would not lift up the paper in the laser cutter.
