Recently I manually created a design for some interlocking drawer dividers:
The yellow lines are what I want the dividers to look like from overhead.
The green panels are the design for each piece that then all interlock together.
I’m interested in finding (or making myself) a generator that could take the yellow lines as input, and spit out the green panels.
Any seen something like this before?
Something that would making doing drawers like this:
Well, my wife is now 100% on-board with the Glowforge. She was putting these weird little plastic boxes in one of the drawers today, I told her I could cut a custom fit tray, and three sheets of
Medium Draftboard later, here we are…
I used the Inkscape tabbed box maker, set to inches. Box dimensions to match the drawer, tab width of .5", line thickness Hairline (0.002" for Epilog), material thickness 0.13, with kerf set to 0.007. Joint clearance 0, 3 dividers in each di…
super fast and easy.
Tabbed dividers are simple enough. The overhangs and angles aren’t. I haven’t seen a generator that would produce that.
Do you know of a more simple tabbed divider generator? If so I’d use that as a starting point.
Ah yea, I do remember looking at this a while ago.
It is a bit of a puzzle
And not flexible enough for me. I’m playing with http://cuttle.xyz (which is awesome) and I’m going to try to build a generator in there.
Wow, something new to me! Awesome.
Hmmmm. I did something similar using a rectangular design a few years ago using make123d, but Autodesk discontinued that. Maybe you could create a box of the required dimensions (non square) and slice it using Slicer for Fusion 360 (Make123d replacement).
Ok… first attempt using
http://cuttle.xyz for this:
Going to play with it, try cutting it, see how well it works.
Assuming everything works great, I’ll share it here with you all.
