Polycarbonate Gift Box

I found a wonderful little necklace with pressed flower embedded in acrylic that I wanted to give as a gift. However it didn’t come with a gift box so I decided to make a fancy one myself. It was modeled in Solidworks as a single multibody part and each body added to the same drawing as separate drawing views allowing for easy dxf export for final cutting. The model is parametric, allowing for different thickness materials to be used, or to scale the X/Y dimensions of the box. I was lucky enough for this design to work first try; only a minor bit of filing was required to allow the two halves to fit together. Took less than 10 minutes of total cut time. All pieces press-fit and it stays together quite nicely without glue.
