NiceBox-360

NiceBox-360 is a script for Fusion 360 for designing laser-cut and mill-cut boxes.

Inputs

Input for the script is a array of parameters. Parameters describes size of the box, material and tool of production. More information and examples you can find it below.

Outputs

Outputs of the script are a 3D model of the box and 6 sketches. Each sketch is a blueprint of the wall of the box, which you can save as .dxf and use for production.

How it's work ?

When you launch script box will appear with default parameters.

Alt text

Wall parameter changes wall thickness. This parameter is a physical thickness of material which you will use for production. In our case 3mm plywood is very popular choice.

Alt text

Height parameter changes height of the box.

Alt text

Width parameter changes width of the box.

Alt text

Depth parameter changes depth of the box.

Alt text

Kerf Laser Cut parameter is defined as the width of material that is removed by a cutting process.

Alt text

Mill diameter diameter of mill tool. Keep it at 0, if you don't use mill router for the manufactoring.

Alt text

Shift parameter is a value how deep top, bottom, back and front are placed relatively to edge of the box. Good example here is 0mm.

Alt text

Tooth proportion the ratio of the length of the tooth to the length of a side.
