This is a simple guide for making CNC cut cases
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: The Design
We wanted to make a case for a small circuit board we had, so we ended up taking measurements and using a site called Makercase to create SVG plans
Step 2: Know the Right Material
Make sure the material you are using is the right thickness, because there was a box we wanted to assemble before and when we used thick acrylic, the nodges didn't fit together well.
Step 3: Creating a Dxf File
For our laser cutter, we needed to convert our file to DXF, so we used an online file converter to do so.
Step 4: Calibration
Depending on the model you have, you will need to upload the design to a program, calibrate the x & y axis of machine, and pick the right material you want before starting the cut.
Step 5: Cut and Assemble
Now you are ready to start up the laser cutter with your materials, and assemble your case
