-Parts laser cut from acrylic sheets which are 1/8 inch (or 3mm, depending on the provider) thick. You may download the ready-to-cut geometry files for the Crowbox ​housing parts for free, [[kit:​geometry_files|right here]]. If you have access to a laser cutter, you may cut these yourselves. Otherwise, you may be able to have the parts cut at a local MakerSpace. You can also buy fabricated ​Crowbox ​parts online, directly from a provider like [[http://thecrowbox.com/​wiki/​doku.php?​id=kit:​ponoko_guide|Ponoko]].+Parts laser cut from acrylic sheets which are 1/8 inch (or 3mm, depending on the provider) thick.

-The Crowbox ​is built using three different colors of acrylic: A light color, a dark color, and transparent. The transparent parts must be transparent so that birds can see the rewards that are on offer. You may choose whichever light and dark colors please you, but you should make sure to pick colors which result in a neutral, natural color scheme in your intended environment.+The CrowBox ​is built using three different colors of acrylic: A light color, a dark color, and transparent.
