Parametric Pencil Box


Make sure to size it up to an appropriate size - the one pictured was sized up to about 8 inches using the eyeball method in the Glowforge app.



Thank you!



What material (proof grade? if not, thickness?)


That’s nice! I like slider boxes and the knob is cool! :+1:

i have done it in 1/8 mdf (not proofgrade but worked with proofgrade settings) and medium proofgrade walnut plywood (pictured)

Great Design, David!

May I ask a couple of qestions:

Which CAD or illustration application do you design this with? Can you share the original files?
You write: Parametric Pencil Box but what exactly is parametric about it?

Best regards,



I use Adobe illustrator
