Box Joint Basic makes it easy to design and cut precise-fitting joinery on-tool without a computer, physical templates, or painstaking calculations. It utilizes Origin's on-tool design to place mating cut paths so the user can effectively create each side of a joint.
Simply input your joint parameters:
- Tool diameter
- Stock dimensions: thickness and width
- Number of pins
- Glue gap
Based on these inputs, Origin will design your box joint and its mating piece for you.
