Acrylic Laser Cut Cubes

Want to make a cube or boxed casing for a project?

Making project encloses are not so difficult. I wanted to make a sample box before jumping into a customized case so this is the outcome. Let's see how it is made:

First having access to a laser cutter is essential. I was able to use a Full Spectrum laser cutter. The pattern I used was generated using MakerCase

MakerCase is a software specifically designed for easy laser cut casing.





Design specs in MakerCase
  • Units: Inches
  • Dimensions:1x1x1
  • Material Thickness: 1/8
  • Edge Joints: Finger
Next I generated the laser cut case plans. 


*Converting from one format to the other may be necessary.

A test cut was done on cardboard before I proceeded with the acrylic. 

Now that the test cut for this simple acrylic cube was a success you can expect to see more intricate designs and projects using acrylic and wood in the future.
