@bbum and @wesleyjames: I made the design for “medium” (1/8") Proofgrade, and have tested it on the maple plywood and draftboard. Though I didn’t design for a specific tolerance, the pieces aren’t particularly tight with Glowforge’s kerfs, and I bet a little bit of glue would handle a few thousandths of an inch. (The Glowforge kerf was measured to be ~0.01-0.02", so that should far exceed the variability of your material.)
As a side note for everyone, I’ve updated the file to v3.0.1, which fixes some labels and closes up the gaps on the basement door. The old file works perfectly fine, but you might prefer the new one. I’ve also uploaded the AI file for easy editing, and added a changelog to the README and Google Docs instructions.
As with most free files on the internet, QA is participatory: Please post here with what works and what needs tweaking!
I made one of these today. I made a mashup of two different designs though. I took the box design and replaced the graphics. The top image is the logo of my local gaming group (The Saint Paul Irregulars) and the sides and inside are the graphics from this post: Dungeons and Dragons Minis
@firstname.lastname@example.org Oh fantastic! Thank you very much to both of you for sharing how yours came out. I’m so glad you found the design useful, and the art upgrades are really great. Rachel, your fable scenes in particular are a lovely idea!
@GrooveStranger Though felt would be a nice touch, I also thought about gluing some cork sheets for bulletin boards, which are cheap, flexible, laserable, and good for coaster projects and other finishing touches as well. I have some cork sheet and it’s an easy addition, though I haven’t tried myself yet: the interior dimensions of the tray are a nice easy 1:2 rectangle, 2.48" by 4.96", and you can lay it in easily after the box is complete. I only worry about how nicely it’ll play with that main hinge, or whether it’ll rob you of the satisfying rolling noise that the box gives you already!
I love this design and I attempted to make one of my own for my Star Wars Legion game…I downloaded your file and the only thing I changed was the artwork on the side…except now none of the holes are big enough…I know you did this in AI do you think importing it into Inkscape screwed up some of the dimensions? I used proofgrade maple ply for my cut. I can post pictures later but pressed for time right at the moment…
