Olive lamp

A parametric lamp I made to introduce myself to laser cutting. The form is simple, symmetric around a central axis.

The design can be easily adjusted to for different material thicknesses, different shapes and different laser cutters or material dimensions. The overall shape of the lamp can be changed, by changing the two curves that are revolved around the central axis, the number of slices is also adjustable, as is the vertical location of the two discs used for connecting the slices.

I have uploaded the design documents as a zip file.

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.

Acrylic Card With Kickstand

Cut on a 40 Watt Epilog Helix

Material: 3mm Acrylic

Engraving Settings:
Speed:50
Power:50

Top tip: remove the top plastic from the acryllic before engraving

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.

Enjoy!

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.
