I would like to suggest rather making Thingiverse better than just starting another such website.

Interesting idea of using a GitHub to host 3D printing files with a template to make the main page look nice, could use a similar one for milling http://garyhodgson.com/reprap/2012/09/g ... -projects/ (recently featured on HaD)

I found this site, which is a huge repository of objects that can be milled on a CNC milling machine.

How's your German?

Found the link from http://estlcam.com which looks interesting, and I decided to go ahead and add to the wiki.

I know it's not quite the same but you can download an .stl file from Thingiverse Or anywhere else and use 123D Make to slice it up and output CNC compatible files for you.

I've actually been meaning to have a go with this since they updated it and added CNC support.

Found this site tonight, http://www.mydxf.blogspot.com/. It has a lot of great dxf files and has them categorized too!

http://www.rabbitlaserusa.com/ has a downloadable file area that has boxes, wood projects, animal puzzles and more. Make sure you scroll to the end of the downloadable section to see the other file locations.

I also found this site that you can put in dimensions for a notched box and it will give you a pdf to download; http://boxmaker.rahulbotics.com/
