Laser cut wooden name sign

I wrote an instructable on how to do it: http://www.instructables.com/id/Laser-Cut-Wooden-Name-Sign/

Type cast box (So far only box)

Project goal is to make a type cast box (for electronic components and so on)

Progress:
Cut boxes generated with:

Lichtenstein Mural (245cm x 245cm)

First I projected the images up on to the wall, then I lightly drew the image directly on the wall with pencil.
Using the pencil guides, I Painted the yellow and red sections. Next I masked the black sections with masking tape and painted them. Finally I used FabLabs vinylcutter to cut all 4367 dots (1,4 cm in diameter) and, one by one, placed them in place.
The final step was using a scalpel to cut the edges of the dots the overlapped the paint.

Wordclock

The Wordclock shows the time by lighting up the words corresponding to the current time. It consists of an Arduino-based LED Matrix and laser cut enclosure.

Box for project pieces

I made this box in Inkscape. there is a function in extension ( laser tool) where you can make boxes.
it is good to have a box to all your pieces :-)

next time i will remove the upper line of the box, so i can make a straight line instead.

The file will come ASAP

Name signs

Used a combination of raster engraving + vector cut to create a couple of name signs for apartment doors.

Heart to tell

I made those hearts so me and my girlfriend could surprise our parents about the new coming grandchild.
I drew it in inkscape and made it in the laser cutter. I had som problems with the font because it didn't match when i took it from inkscape from mac to inkscape PC, but then i made "object to path" when the text was selected before i saved it.

Lasergraverede brikker til et spil (geocaching)

I dette game har man noget, der hedder en Travel Bug (TB)

En TB rejser fra bruger til bruger. Rejsen registreres på en site på internettet, hvor ejeren af TBen kan følge dens rejse ud i verden.

Lasergravering er et indlysende stykke værktøj til denne opgave. Som materiale er valgt 3 mm akryl, PMMA.

Udfordringen består i at finde frem til en passende graveringsdybde samt at finde en metode, hvor der kan graveres på begge sider.

Graveringsparamereren: Speed 20, 100 % power fungerer fint. Skæring sker med Epilogs skæredata.

Huse til Ho modelbane

Baggrund for projektet:

Man kan rundt regnet ikke finde danske typehuse til modeljernbaneanlæg. Det findes kun udenlandste huse fra bl.a. Faller og PECO.

Jeg har derfor sat mig for at lave 7-8 forskellige typehuse i skala H0 (1:87) til modelbanen.
Jeg havde ingen forbilleder at kigge efter, så det var hele vejen op fra bunden.
Materialet er 3mm MDF Masonit plade.
Vinduer og døre graveres ned i pladen, hvorefter husets enkelte dele skæres ud.

Counters

Counters for games.
Simple circles in Inkscape (15 mm and 25 mm) cut in transparent acrylic with vector settings 10, 100, 5000.
