Space rocket interior deco

This was a request from a young relative to make a name tag out of mirror acrylic
So inside I left an oval shape where you can insert a nametag
It is quite a loose fit, same with the wings of the rocket
I added this rocket with a "space pattern" (downloaded from the internet and traced it in Inkscape) just to spice it up and for it to be used as a table decoration or toy
It reflects a rocket pattern on the wall if you shine a light on it

Name signs

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

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.
