  1. I've been looking into 3d modeling the "companion cube"-style wider crates from Star Wars. There are tons of small and subtle differences between series. http://rainbowdash.net/attachment/875956

      1. @scribus Interesting. The dimensions of that crate is about the shape of two cubes stuck together. The shape doesn't lend that much for comics. I can imagine having 3 rows of comics in that box that are side-by-side that would approximately fill the crate's shape without major alterations. However I think that it might be too much. I think that producing these crates would be expensive as it needs a lot of manual labor. Also I have not the tools to make the crates efficiently and with quality that justifies the costs.

        1. @adiwan Yeah, mass production always feels so daunting.

          1. @scribus Yeah. I would need a big CNC router and/or a medium-size laser cutter to cut down in labor time and to provide decent and repeatable quality. It could be done without those but it would be not economical.
