doosje.pl creates an SVG for laser cutting a small box. This project has no home page but its source code repository can be found online at <https://github.com/Juerd/doosje>. The box will have two flexible hinges and consists of three parts. This method of making flexible hinges was invented by SNIJLAB, and this specific box design is based on the one you can create at <http://www.frag-den-spatz.de/boxdesigner/> for a small fee. Doosje may be used, distributed and modified freely, by anyone, for any purpose. To build an SVG change a few parameters in the file and then run perl doosje.pl > myfirstdoosje.svg The resulting SVG might require some changes before it works with your specific lasercutter; specifically, you might need to alter the stroke color or width. The parameters are documented in the script file itself. Please share photos of your boxes, along with the generated SVG, on thingiverse.com. If you've made changes to doosje.pl, other than just the box parameters, please contribute back on Github or send the modified file or a diff to <#####@juerd.nl>.
