Yesterday I spend sometime at my local #fablab #fablabnordvest learning to know their Chinese Laser cutter. I used 4mm. white acrylic.
The design was made with #iDraw and exported to SVG (You can download the SVG here Body.svg). But my Chinese friend only speaks DXF or AI. After importing the converted AI file, I realised that I needed to do some cleanup of the path. Some of the patterns appeared twice(?).
Anyhow, it’s always mesmerising to watch a machine do it’s work.
After playing with the assembly, I want to redesign the way the lid is attached and I will like to make a smaller version for 9g servos. Probably the easiest way to do this is to use OpenSCAD to create a parametric model with the size of the servos as a dynamic variable, and then create a projection which I can export to DXF.
