I saw this over on the Inventables forum…not sure if it has been posted here or not. It could make life a lot simpler for some people (me, really, I’m talking about myself).
I’ve posted a new app that creates tabbed boxes a là makercase, although with fewer options. It works best when you use the dog bone generator on it after creating the box.
I don’t speak German (or English well) but best as I can figure there is a registration fee of 13 Euros to get the password. And you might have to wait 2 or 3 days for the password email. It seemed at first as if the passwords were for greater than 100 uses but I can’t download any of the fancy box types for free. If you just want to use the simplest standard box type the password is “freebie”.
I’ve been using @kigster’s makeabox.io for a project lately - it’s terrific! (Although twice I accidentally used outside instead of inside measurements - would be lovely to have that as a setting instead).
And yes, I will be adding the inside/outside measurement control shortly, as well as the cookie-based storage for recalling past settings. Especially given that my GF should arrive before end of July (I purchased mine just a few days before the cut-off — phew!).
I was looking for a box maker last night. I would have used @kigster’s, but I was looking for the option for no top and bottom cuts. The crates I am building will have a rabbeted bottom, which I will do on the table saw.
So many to choose from. I’ve settled on an Inkscape extension for basic boxes since it allows metric and imperial, inside and outside dimensions, kerf, tap spacing, dividers, open sides and a few other tweaks.
However, this site so many options, it’s hard to beat. It’s been posted many times, but looks like not yet on this topic. Plus you don’t have to download and install the code. Here is a box maker server.
