Okay this is an easy one (I hope). All straight cuts and slide together.
(I was testing the radial slice function of AutoDesk 123D Make.)
Original design in Rhino - saved as STL.
Brought into AutoDesk 123D Make for slicing.
Sliced assuming 0.125 inch thick material
(Have no idea what the actual measurements are, so that will probably need to be adjusted later to get the slots right)
Transferred slicing results into AI to create SVG file.
a. Note: Export via EPS is the fastest, most reliable way to transfer the files from AD123 Make… tried all of the possible methods.)
b. Another note - any paths imported from AD123 Make come in as discrete unconnected segments. (Not a Boolean Export function. Curves consist of short straight segments.)
I joined the straight segments in this file (in Illustrator), and the file contains Compound Paths. (It would be interesting to see if the machine stutters on unconnected paths.)
Okay that’s about all I can remember about it.
This was laid out for 12" x 12" plywood sheets

Okay - input welcome…have no laser, no access to one, just designing blind at this point.
