I have been brain storming this for a while and wanted to share my first iteration of the Moment From Dr. Who. The cube itself is 4.75 inches on a side and the sides where created in Inkscape (I now know more about booleans than I ever wanted to). It’s not exact, by any means but I like it.
And here, with Velvet Underground record for scale:
The edges and corners were cut on CNC. For the edges, I laid them all out all out together and etched then so the design wrapped.
I would probably go with a faster speed next time as the laser went through the thinner parts and gave me some issues with glue squeeze out. I also cut the edges about 1/8 inch too long (math is hard) and so I had to cut and sand them.
The corners are cut like this and they just fold up:
They needed to be a bit more substantial than the edges, but that’s for next time.
Hope my fellow nerds get a kick out of it.
