A different snowflake - Ballet

design

#1

So, a friend had asked about a ballet-themed snowflake, and I decided to start learning new software and play with that at the same time. I then decided I would share the file here.

Edit: File is updated. I think I have found and eliminated all the duplication.


(not the file, Updated file being linked soon)

Burned on paper. A weight in the center is your friend if you do this.

File: Ballet_Snowflake.zip (20.7 KB)

Well, that’s kewl! :smile:


#3

Very cool - I do think that loops is going to be too small. I might suggest putting it on the ring in between two ballerinas instead of having it on a head :slight_smile:

Looking forward to seeing it cut!


#4

I like where I have it for a dancer vertical. If it is too small, I just have to go back to my source file and upsize it. Maybe I will have to cut a test on something, though acrylic is my goal.


#6

The file is updated now, in case you came and got it earlier.


#7

A little bit of practice with the snowflakes tells me more passes, less power. Trying to cut without melting the edges for the fine details.


#8

OOOOOOOoooooo! I’m trying to do the same thing with octopuses for the Nerd Cruise.


#9

Very nice! Thanks for sharing.


#10

I hear narwhals are better.


#11

Do you have an octopus outline you are working with?


#12

Fun idea …l and very nice of you to share!


#13

Presumable Narwhal would be horn out on a snowflake?


#14

The loop for hanging is small, but will hold a fishing line on a 4.5" or larger flake.


#15

Inventables blue on white acrylic, as requested by friend.


#16

or tail. I could see either working


#17

Narwhals are nice, but octopuses are group specific.


#18

Yes. I started out picking up images from Etsy shops, but then found sites that offer fonts and graphics for sale with professional licenses, so I can use them in retail products .

And of course they’re running sales right now.


#19

Well, I was thinking that with a little work, I can drop an octopus into a snowflake, would just need a good starting image.


#20

… work in progress…almost done…

Edit: Adding an outer ring, too.


#21

When it is done, I will share.
