CNC500: CNC BoxCenter Custom Box-Making Machine SBU
Class Number 1396-117639

Learn how to operate the BoxCenter.

Designed and built by TechShop member John Osborne, it is the first computer controlled custom box-making machine of its kind. It will make nearly any custom-sized box of precise dimensions from a flat sheet of inexpensive 4' X 8' cardboard. The machine is controlled via an intuitive and easy-to-grasp graphical user interface (GUI). Use it to select special options like handles, flaps, lids, and made-to-fit packaging inserts. Now you can make your own packaging for products you make at TechShop!
