UPDATED: Winner announced below, but feel free to share your prototyping project anyway!
Thanks for joining our Prototyping Party and welcome to the After Party!
Share your cardboard prototypes and projects for a chance to win a material sample pack of your choice. Check out the Material Sample Store to see what's available.
Let us know what you created, and post a link to more info, or attach photos/images of your prototyped product. I'll be posting what I put together myself very soon...
We look forward to seeing what you've made!
Here's my first attempt at a non-trivial cardboard prototype.
Hey Clif, that's a solidly packed design file. Are you going to post photos of it assembled?
If I am able to assemble it, I will...
Thought I'd throw a quick cardboard prototype for a wood spice rack into the mix.
I figured out a slight spacing issue with the lip of the tin containers that slot in which is never a bad thing.

I wanted more spiciness, so I added another 18 slots. Also included a way to mount it on a wall which is probably useful :)
No idea if I got it right, I'll find out when it gets here.
Just finished the prototype of a plugin for Illustrator. The design is extremely detailed, and may loose some parts because I'm cutting the dry run out of cardboard, but I wanted to give it a trial run before I committed more time to code refinement:
Comments and thoughts would be welcome!
assembling my prototype today, and all is going well. I just need some thread to finish it, and will post photo(s).
Here are some photos:
I'm very happy with how everything fits together!
That's an impressively complex design. My hat is off you you Clif.
That is so awesome Clif! The spice rack is also very cool Justin & I'll be super interested to see how your jewelery turns out Michael. If you'd like any assistance with your plug in, feel free to email it through to us and we can check it out too.
Clif has won a material sample collection of his choosing. The "xylophone or marimba" design is really cool. We look forward to seeing the final product. Congratulations Clif.
Heres mine: http://yfrog.com/oe39poj its a rubbish bin that takes standard supermarket shopping bags.
I was thinking laser cutting the timber version, but the scale probably lends itself more towards CNC....
Hi David - the rubbish bin is fantastic! What is the scale of it, out of curiosity?
Hi Josh, Thanks! Width by height by depth: 410mm x 380mm x 280 and it fits on a P3 sheet. I roughly measured a PaknSave Bag and it fits them well, I assume supermarket bags are the same or similar size in the States?
Yeah, they're pretty similar here. The material thicknesses are a bit different, however.
I could see this as being really successful just made out of cardboard, actually - shipped direct to the user for assembly, kind of like:http://www.ponoko.com/design-your-own/products/iphone-document-scan...
Cool, yeah I initially was thinking along similar lines. The idea was to add value to cardboard boxes that might otherwise be thrown out. Ideally I'd like to commercialize it to be perforated on large cardboard boxes for shipping stuff, maybe license it. I wonder if CarterHoltHarvey Is listening? Haha.
I like the form enough to do some versions in italian poplar or similar. I'll probably need to rethink the joins if I go to CNC...
Check out the attached image...
Yes, you'll definitely need to rethink for CNC - due to the nature of working with a 1/4 inch routing bit and the other specific requirements of the fabbing method.
I look forward to seeing a plywood version though!
