Skæve streger, fiasko og en ny ven

Hvordan jeg endte med at kaste min kærlighed på tegneprogrammet LibreCAD og stadig være gode venner med Inkscape.

Kerf explanation

This picture shows the relation between 0.01 cut lines in your software and what remains after cutting the pieces by laser cutter. You can measure tabs and slots width and height in your software and check for correctness.

Shape Sorter with sound making shapes

Shape Sorter made in 4mm HDF and 3mm Acrylic.

Shapes are filled with: Rice beans, bells, wood pieces and the sound device from a music card

How to assemble:
The Bottom plate have to be put in place when assembeling the inner case.
Best practise is to start gluing the inner case with the bottom piece in place and then start adding the outer siders one by one.

The cube of symbols

A game, a statement or just an overly fun toy.
The possibilities seems endless for this easily 3D printed cube, made with TinkerCAD.

It is made purely from default shapes.
First i added a Cube
Second i added symbols
Third i made them into holes.
Finally i added them to the cube.

UPD: coasters, sheep, name tags, photo frames

Hello, this is my first ever try at laser cutting - making some Christmas tree decorations and cute little sheep. "Perekond Piel" stands for "Family Piel" in Estonian and this is supposed to be a door sign.
Laser cut in 4 mm HDF.

UPDATE: the first try was unsuccesful... The laser has only cut through approx. 3/4 of the board, so there was no chance I could get my designs out and the whole thing together with a few hours in the lab were beautifully wasted :) Most probably this happened due to inaccurate adjustment of focus in laser settings.

Maple leaves

I've made seven maple leaves on Inkscape. I found a picture of a maple leaf on Google. But I thought that it was not enough just to make maple leaves, so I took a picture of another leaf and edited it on Inkscape. The first time we cut the cardboard on the laser cutter the cardboard burned. The second time we tried it burned too. So we decided to remove the second leaf, so there was only the maple leaf back. Now we cut them out of wood, they measure 11.5 cm in width and 10 cm in height each.

Game of zombies - Zombie zapp

We are a group of 5 graders from Kirsebaerhavens School just outside Copenhagen. We made a board game with 5 pieces, a board and a dice. It´s a game for 5 persons. We designed the game in the programme called Inkscape. The inspiration comes from a mobile game called Zombie Zunami.It was difficult to find the different pictures to put on the board. we could have drawn them ourselves, but drawing in Inkscape is very difficult. When the board was ready, the fantasy worked on its own.The measures of the board are w 40cm  h 60cm. The pieces are made on the 3D scanner.

House with led lights

Today and yesterday, we have worked with a house which uses led lights. Today, we have managed to make our prototype out of cardboard, it was not quite finished, but we are still working to solve it. Monday, we made lanterns and 3D shapes with a 3D scanner called Sense. Our house still needs the roof and part of the lights. Now
we have corrected our mistakes, we have
chosen to use normal bulbs instead of led lights. We've cut
our house out of wood and have compiled what we need. Last, we have to glue our roof on the sides of the house and to cut a hole for the bulbs.
