Iman made a snow man. She was inspired by the movie Frozen. She went on Google and wrote Frozen snow man Olaf. She copied the snow man to Inkscape. On Inkscape Iman deleted all colors and patterns on the snow man. Then she opened Object and Ungroup to delete faults and all dubble lines. Hereafter, she opened Stroke paint and Stroke style to fill in the needed width, color, limits ect. Finally, she put in on a USB.At the end, Iman opened the final design and prepared the laser cutter. First, she cut in cardboard. She is satisfied and is ready to cut in clear acrylic.
We made a sign which says "Put your hand in the air - it doesn´t cost anything", to our teacher. We were inspired by a conversation with our teacher. We used Inkscape to design the sign, then we used the Laser scanner to cut it. Then we connected some led lights by soldering them. It took a long time, because the burner was very hot! and small.
My first try at printing something in Fablab. This is a medieval times math game, also know as The Philosopher's Game, that I saw at a museum exhibition.
We got inspiration to draw it from the internet and now we just need to learn how to play :)
Laser cut at 3mm MDF, the numbers could have been a bit bigger and the engraving darker.

We are four pupils from Kirsebaerhavens Skole in Valby, Copenhagen - Denmark. The entire class will spend four days at the Fablab at KulturValby.Today, the first day we´ve scanned one another´s torsos. Our teachers divided us into groups and we won the 3D scan. The world isn´t flad and 2 dimensional, but has many dimensions.
making this box with boxmaker in wood
cutting it out on the laser, and cuting out the form of the leafs.
ingraving plexiglas with a design made by me.
fitting the plexiglas into the wood, needed speciel care. Since they are to different materials.
so the poly is made slightly bigger, than the cut-out wood-leaf.form.
for a 3mm thickness in both wood and poly, I did the wood size 100 &
and the poly size 100,5 %
no kerf settings.
if you look very close, you see "big" gabs.
I´m not sure why this happened (?)
