Inspired by the beautiful 6 Packer by timogiles I designed this beer crate to be flattened on the way to the store. The slot-in design allows a tool-free assembly.
The build was done on a desktop cnc-machine from Stepcraft from 6.5 mm beech plywood using a spiral-toothed 1.2 mm flute.

Working on an idea with pencil and paper works best in many cases.
When the dimensions were clear, I started the work on the CAD-file.
Using the CAD-drawing I build a 3D-model in SketchUp.
This rendering helped to examine the design.
