Flex Box - A wooden box with a living hinge
by 4volt, published
I redrew the design and made it into a box, suitable for trinkets, cards, photos, small papers.
The hinge is quite durable, but not ineducable. I don't feel like I would wear it out with frequent use. It's also surprisingly flexible for being made of wood.
I plan on using more living hinges in wood from now on.

I designed this in illustrator with some trial and error in the spacing of the joint cuts, no very scientific calculations went into it.
I use solidworks all the time for my more complex projects, generally I draw the 3d parts, then place them on a 2d drawing and export the drawing to DXF.
Hi, love it! Just wondering how you designed it? I'm using Illustrator currently to make some modifications. Did you use a CAD technique or manual calculation for getting the comb joints correct?
And does anyone know if there is any way to design in 3D, like Solidworks, then import as a laser compatible file?
