6 Packer by timogiles Jan 20, 2012

Description

Say hello to the 6 Packer, the awesomest way to transport your glass bottled beverage of choice. The 6 Packer is constructed of 3/16" thick laser cut ply wood and assembled with 4-40 1/2" screws and nuts. The bottle holes will accept anything from the run of the mill long neck bottles to IBCs to short chubby craft beer bottles.
The 6 Packer was designed with openscad and is completely parametric. You can change material thickness, bottle diameter, fastener size, hand grip size re-render and cut out using your favorite laser cutter!
What's that? You don't have a laser cutter? You can purchase a 6 packer directly from me over at Etsy. timogiles.etsy.com Enjoy!

My inspiration is the buildlog.net 2.x laser cutter(http://www.buildlog.net).  bdring has a great design, he puts together kits of the the custom parts that you can buy from him and the design has been successfully replicated by a bunch of people.  Personally, I started with a cheap Chinese DC-KIII and after about a year I took that tube and powersupply and built a built a much larger frame for it.  
I have a 3D printer but want to build a laser cutter, where should i begin? Which DIY lasercutter is easy? Sorry to post it in here but here are the lasercut people. :)
hello timogiles, I tried to print on A4paper, all_parts .svg. but I can't, the image is too small.

Instructions

1. Tweak the OpenSCAD file to your exact specifications
2. Export from OpenSCAD as a DXF.
- note that DXFs inherently have no units. The .scad file is designed in mils (1/1000 inch)
3. Import DXF into Inkscape
- scale by .0254 to get the dimension correct on import
4. Prep & send to your laser cutter
5. Put all the pieces together
6. Smile with delight at your creation.

I like it. It says, "I'm here for the whole night, and not a lightweight like the 4 pack guy." :)
Check out the scroll saw version that Guy Albertelli did. I'm impressed.

I was thinking to make one of these myself! This looks great!
you should make one out of aluminum
