About half a year ago I joined as a worker prole -- much of my work is working directly with artists to make their dreams come true with a laser engraving or cutting on their projects.
It's amazingly satisfying for me because I'm the artist tech at the end of their process and I bring the "bang" to their projects and they walk away joyous and what "we've" made (they did all the work, I just did the pretty part at the very end they couldn't do on their own.)
And Eric really pushed me in to industrial design. Into 3d modelling. Into working with unusual materials.

Jerome Leary has a site for creating .dxf files of boxes. Including trusses, which is very cool. You will need a way to convert to .ai files though. Convertio has a web app which worked for me.
