Ok so, I keep both ants and spiders as pets ( sorry to anyone that is grossed out by creepy crawlies) but anyways I bought my ants a formicarium that came with this awesome little lid with the tiniest little breathing holes laser cut right into the lid, and it got me thinking about my spiders and making their breathing holes the same way, mostly because the spider’s food ( crickets usually) keeps chewing their way out of the current mesh ( either window screen or bug netting) and it’s driving me crazy, if I could just cut little acrylic breathing hole windows, the crickets couldn’t chew out, making a potential spider escape hole. !
I tried figuring out how to design this myself, but got quickly frustrated with size and lining up the holes neatly. If anyone knows 1. What size to make the holes To be as small as possible, yet the laser will recognize it as a hole to cut easily, and 2. How to get them lined up neatly using Inkscape, I would be super happy
(Hopefully this is the right category and my photos worked, it’s my first post)
Below should be a picture of the purchased acrylic lid I’m trying to make, and a photo of my current ( failing) breathing holes, ideally the idea is to make the one for the spiders about a 2” circle with the grid of breathing holes in it, then it would fit the holes I already drilled for the window screen mesh.
