Small Box and Lid with SVGs

Small Box made with Fusion 360.

I tried to make it completely with user defined parameters, but it didnt work perfectly. I was able to adjust the material thickness, and that would change the sketch drawing, but I still had to go back and make a new extrusion.

Here are the SVGs for anyone that wants to make it:

This is my first time trying to upload SVGs, let me know if it works.

The material thickness (and therefore the tooth size) is .175"

The finished dimensions are 4" x 6" x 2"

If you end up making a copy for yourself, please post a picture and let me know how it worked out.

Very nice! I like the small teeth! What are you planning to use it for? :grinning:

i’m thinking about making a bunch for my workbench to hold screws, hardware, etc…

Right now it’s on my wife’s desk holding pens.

Here’s a parametric box I set up in Fusion360 that’s fully parametric except for the number of fingers in the joints. To simplify things I modeled only the 3 unique sides and left out the copies that close the box. I usually work in metric though, and the parameters are unit-specific.

Check it out and maybe it’ll help you reverse-engineer a bit and figure out how to get it working.

Nice little box! Looks a little naked on top though–how about an engrave? :laughing:

I just had an idea. My wife loves tea. Maybe I can can engrave/cut some antique tea tin designs in it. And she can keep her tea in a few of them.

Now you’re thinking. Perfect!
