As discussed in this thread: Laser Cut Board Games, I’m working on a backgammon board. I’m far enough into it that I can share the initial design screenshots.
Like a lot of my artwork, it has tall buildings in it.
I’m very curious to know how well the GF will be able to cut the small pieces. The board itself will be about 12" tall (so bigger than the image). I put a LOT of details into this one, just to test the GF capabilities.
There’s still some designing to do on this. I still have to put in slots to hold all the game pieces and dice (on each end). I have to design the game pieces. I’m thinking of making them little aliens and ships rather than just round pieces. I want this board to fold in two, so I need to find some good hinges, and figure out how to attach them. It’s getting there. I should have something to cut once the GF arrives (unless it arrives early…hint, hint).
I will not share the design for this one for free (like my other designs in the Free Laser Designs category http://community.glowforge.com/c/free-laser-designs). I want to try this one out myself first, and if it works well, I’ll probably put the design on the GF store once it’s online.
