Using parametrics in our designs allows us to customise an object to our needs. For example, a parametric box may let you enter the width, height, and depth, and then output the files needed to cut a box.
Boxes.py hosts a wide range of parametric designs for different structures, that you can tweak to your needs. As the name suggests, there are lots of boxes, but also trays, pulleys, gears, robots, and a miscellany of other parts. It’s not completely exhaustive in any area (though the range of different box designs is quite extensive), but does provide a good first place to check when you’re looking for parametric laser-cutting patterns.
