6 Packer - 24x12 by BrianEnigma Jan 28, 2012

Featured Thing!


This is a derivative of timogiles’ original “6 Packer” model. Specifically, this started as his design, generated for 1/8" material. I then hand-optimized the pieces to allow parts to better share cut lines. Finally, I (barely) squeezed it to fit on to two 24" x 12" boards.

This design also inclues an etched QR code directing people to the downloadable files.

The first file comes really, really close to the edge.</li> <li>Remove pieces and insert second 24"x12"x1/8" board into laser cutter.</li> <li>Print second file.

  • Note that the design files are set up for laser cutting at ADX Portland ( http://adxportland.com/ ). This means cut lines are red, etch fill is grey. This may be different from other laser cutting devices/services you use.

If I were to do this again, I might make a couple of design tweaks. I go into a bit more detail about this on a blog post: http://netninja.com/2012/01/28/a-robot-laser-helps-me-carry-craft-brew/
