Classic 3D dragonfly puzzle

I thought these would make nice christmas presents. 3mm MDF. Friction fit.

It’s 24" long with a 22" wingspan.

https://3axis.co/ Found it here. But they need a bit of work to be glowforge-ready.

Wow … that’s huge!

Thanks! That’s really big…

Nice!
Where did you get the MDF if I may ask?

Now all you need is to incorporate a small drone into the body somehow…:thinking: (if out of cardboard maybe could lift it…)

My work gets it from a local wood supplier ( PJ White Hardwoods) in 4’x8’ sheets

It was way too big. I’ve scaled it down to a single sheet for easier cutting!

I don’t know anything about dragonflies but are the wings backwards? Looks great to me either way though. :grinning:

It certainly looks like they could be.

I made some of the reindeer and had the antlers backwards, so I have been there too. :rofl:

hehe… I thought that when assembling, but I was just following the OPs pic… turns out they were. :slight_smile: As the parts just slot together, no dragonfly wings were harmed in the correction of this error…
