Box Joints gadget

Post by astebur@aol.com »

Here's a gadget to design a box with box joints. It is simple to use, yet provides you with multiple controls. It will create boxes with different style of front and back legs, or no legs at all. Download the file from:


Yeah, I know I had fat fingers saving the Read Me file, but just go ahead and laugh, I'm not changing it now.

I've updated the gadget just a bit. Primary change is that any values you enter for your box are now remembered by the gadget, you don't have to re-enter every value every time. Also got rid of the useless reminder pop-up when processing is completed.

Check the layers... each piece on a different layer.

Awesome Gadget!!!

You may want to leave the pop-up reminder letting the user know that each part of the box assembly is created on its own layer. That way the user will know where to look for the other parts which have been created. Thereby the user can copy each part to the Layer 1 which had not been used when parts were created with gadget. Of course the user will have to duplicate some parts such as the ends and sides to achieve complete box. The user then can Rename LAYER 1 to COMPLETE BOX and continue on the create toolpaths.

You did a super job on the Gadget. I know how hard it is to write the code, html, and all the testing. I look forward to seeing more of your work. again, very nice work.
Thanks,
Jim
