What if you could make a box for your own design made at a Fablab or at home? The Magic Box application lets you do just that! You can use it to create a box for any product you want. It uses the basic shape of a box and lets you adjust the width, height and depth and a couple of other parameters. When you have set all the parameters, save the box outline as an SVG and cut it on the vinyl cutter or laser cutter or cut it out yourself. It can even adjust for the thickness of the material you are using.
Magic Box is still in active development and we only have one box shape implemented. So, if you have ideas about other kinds of boxes please let me know and I can implement them too!
We make tools for closet creatives
Let's get started!
Step 1: Choose your product and measure it
That shouldn't be too hard, right?
Find yourself a product that needs to be wrapped. For example one that you made in a Fablab. Anything smaller than 30 centimeters will work (depending on the size of your lasercutter or vinyl cutter of course). Measure it's size and write it down.
Ok, now for the next step, installing Magic Box!
