Here is a design for Christmas Past or Future depending on being late or early.
The smallest branch was not used thereby making room for mounting the star. The design shown worked for clear acrylic with thickness between 0.109 and 0.111 inches (mask removed). The central “trunk” fits into the slot in each branch. For the design shown with stated acrylic thickness, the sloping laser cut edge of the long narrow trunk was sanded at the edges on the bottom side of the trunk. A test branch is provided to use after cutting the trunk to test for fitting before cutting all other parts. You may need to adjust dimensions depending on your material thickness and your machine kerf behavior. In case the svg file below scale is changed in posting, the longest branch should be 3.701 inches.
For order of operations, cut slots before perimeters.
An alternate design used an 90-degree X-shape for each branch resulting in an effective appearance halving of the spiral pitch.
Thank you. I guess it is time to start getting ready for the holidays.
Awesome. Looks great thanks for sharing
Is that on a light up base? Do you have any pics of it on?
That base is an acrylic edge-lit base with multiple modes/colors. I have a video but am not sure how to get it into this thread.
Thanks for the share, that looks great!
Here is a photo of the double spiral version.
Oh, that’s absolutely gorgeous! Thanks so much, I will be totally making one of these.
Just had a thought–I might split it in half lengthwise and install it in an LED night light. What do you think?
That is super awesome looking! Thanks for the share!
Very nice! I had been thinking along similar lines but not in clear acrylic.
Oh, awesome! Thanks for sharing!
Very nice Christmas tree design and thank you for such a nice file.
Do you have the star pattern to for the tree
Sorry I forgot the star. Here are three designs I tried. Engraving was used to highlight areas.
The star with bitmap text had a bitmap gradient at the perimeter. Some Pilot Error of mine has omitted that gradient. Never sure how to operate these computers.
Would this also work with wood?
