Cut out boxes and other stuff with a laser cutter

Ok, I now added FingerJoints for angles smaller or bigger than 90 degrees - depending on how you are measuring. It only works for walls meeting more straight than 90 degrees for now. I really hope the changes don't break anything else as FingerJoints are the very heart of the library.

I tried them out at a 2x2 BinTray with 20x20mm bin size for maximum cuteness and also saving material. Unfortunately the images are a bit blurry and cannot fully capture the cuteness:

In the picture above you can see how the edges of the fingers of both sides line up as the edge between the two walls.

Change the sizes to 20*2, 20*2 and 20, adjust the thickness and burn for the
material you want to use and send the file to the laser cutter of your
choice.

You may want to reduce "finger" and "space" to 1 in the "Settings for Finger Joints" especially when using thicker material.
