This Machine Creates a Custom Perfectly-Sized Box For Whatever You're Shipping

The Slimbox machine looks similar to a thickness sander you’d find in a woodshop. But instead of feeding it a two-by-four you need sanded thinner, you insert a flat piece of cardboard into the Slimbox that gets sliced up with a laser cutter to create a template that can then be easily folded into a box that’s a perfect fit for whatever you need to ship.

Ensuring that the Slimbox spits out a box that’s exactly as big or small as you need is as easy as measuring the object using an included scale, and then feeding the dimensions to the machine using a free accompanying iOS or Android app.
