Making the Physical Container on the CNC Mill

Sometimes you just have to see it to understand it. I know because I am a visual learner. So here it is: How to make the container from start to finish….. Physically speaking! From a block of Renshape to final product. No code  or 3D modelling at all!

If your looking for the Inventor tutorials for the container, look here: http://chrisandjimcim.com/how-do-i-make-a-container-in-inventor/
