We just released a new
Polygon Box generator in Cuttle.
You can customize the number of sides (make it a pentagon, hexagon, octagon, etc) and the height, diameter, and material thickness. It generates a press-fit SVG cut file, ready to laser.
@federico recorded a terrific video tutorial walking through the parameters and assembly.
I think this looks great with cutouts on the sides, so I also made this
variation with a mandala pattern.
This one also lets you customize the mandala design:
Both of these templates are free for the next week, then they will become Cuttle Pro templates.
Here’s a free-forever Octagon box that’s 3in height and 3in diameter (nice size for a pencil holder).

I also like how easy it is to add lids to these.

That’s a nice sleek design without visible joints.
Nice update to my slat box generator.

(If there’s any feature you’re missing, let me know and we’ll prioritize it.)
Cuttle has unique features such as live (non-…
Very nice. I’m a big fan of cuttle!
