Thanks for your answer.
Basically I would just need to hollow out an aluminium block, drill some holes into it and cut some threads and build a lid for that box.
Then if possible shape/finish/polish the outside.
I also thought about trying the other way, printing it or casting it, but that sounds like more work than drilling holes..

I don't think our CNC is working at the moment. That item looks like
it is milled aluminium. We do not have a lathe. There are various
tools and you could probably build something similar without using a
CNC. We have a bench drill which might make some of the cuts. If you
have detailed specifications of your items/products then we could look
at how they could be achieved with what we have available.
