Today, Henk (the manager of the lab) introduce us to this big CNC milling machine. So now, we need a project to use this one.. Conor (another intern at Waag Fablab) and I really need something to storage our stuff here. So we think about making a box.

A previous intern made this one ☟ and it is very nice, with a "clips" system.

I also like this website ☞ where you can download open plan designed by contributors to make furniture with a CNC milling machine. For example, here is a pedestal which can also be a good start to design our own box.

In the same idea, is a group of designers and hackers. They all share a common question about open source industrial design, processes and products resulting from them work, with the aim of providing tools for accessing a free philosophy applied to the manufacture of objects. So there, you can also download open plans and production guides. And even propose an updated version or a new project.

here is a good read to learn a bit more about open-design and open-licenses : Diverted Derived Design.
