i bought a movie through redbox a while ago (a $3 score!). the only problem was it didn’t have a case well, i have a laser cutter - might as well make one! i haven’t made hinges before and didn’t want to spend a lot of time figuring it out - so i made a slide out version:
the top closure is done in clear blue acrylic to signify it’s a bluray.
here it is with it’s new neighbors.
and here you can see it after i wrapped it with a graphic i printed out.
That’s a clever idea. Never would have crossed my mind to make a DVD case on the GF!
Hmm. Might be able to slim it down by only having three plys and have the “cover” fit on the “top”.
Full back with a the DVD holder (2 layers) and sides are fingered to accept the top. Kerf would have to be relatively tight.
i actually measured it so it would match the other dvd cases in size and then worked backwards on how to create it within those constraints
Wow, what a great design! You are really thinking outside the (dvd) box!
