MakerCase is a single-page web application to generate laser-cut box designs based on the user’s specifications. The user enters the desired dimensions and material thickness, and the app automatically generates an interactive three-dimensional model of the design.
MakerCase can create boxes with interlocking dovetail edges or slots for retaining nuts and bolts with a single button. Users can also add holes and engraved text to individual faces of the case using a drag and drop editor.
When the design is complete, the application flattens the three-dimensional model into blueprint and generates an SVG file that can be sent directly to a laser cutter.
For cutting, the application can be configured to compensate for the beam width of the laser and convert any engraved text into vector paths.
