Design

I've drawn the box and all the parts for the 3D printer in Autodesk Fusion 360. The basis was always a 2D sketch that was extruded accordingly.

An example, how I created the corner for the bottom of the box, shows the individual steps.

With the help of the dimension tool, I created the right size.

With 4 other lines I have divided the basic shape into the individual areas.

I created the final 3D shape by using the extrusion tool. With a height on the outside 10mm, middle 2mm and inside 5mm.

Following a similar principle, I have created the other parts:

Some more detailed information about each specific part:

After everything was finished, I created a new model an imported and duplicated all parts. I aligned these parts with the move tool. Afterward, I have created the individual parts of the box (2x short side, 2x long side and 1x bottom), each with a thickness of 3mm.
