I sure wish someone would make a customizer for one of these! I love using a laser cutter, but I'm rubbish at the software. lol

Definitely using this one though!

Hmmmm a customizer...That's a good idea!

As for Software, we use a program called Inkscape, which is free and open-source AND will work on Mac, Windows + Linux!!!

There is a wealth of online tutorials on Youtube mainly aimed at graphics design but most, if not all, Fab Labs will use this piece of software. Find out where your local Fab Lab is via https://www.fablabs.io/labs/map and pop into one of their community access days and someone can help you through the learning process. All this is free of charge!

Already a member of my local makerspace. We use inkscape to convert images but then use software called "boss laser" for node creation and editing. I think its just rebranded rdworks.

It's not that I don't know how to make the boxes, but hand editing all those notches and groves takes me forever and I always get numbers messed up somewhere and have to recut entire panels.

Here's an easy solution...

You'll have to install an extension into Inkscape but it's a quick fix.
