Engrave the curve of the Master Sword

qa

#1

I wonder can Glowforge manage to engrave the curve of the Master Sword.
How can I put the 3D file into Glowforge?


#2

it could theoretically do 180 degrees of it as long as there are no overhangs. you’d need something like a depth map of the 3d model looking straight on, and you’d only be able to do it on a relatively small scale.

if you’re steady enough you might be able to heat warp flat acrylic.

there are a few other ways you might do curved surfaces but it’s a lot of conjecture and finish time.


#3

If you mean engraving on a curved surface, that is to be implemented in future releases of the UI. Right now I believe we can only do flat.

Also is that small enough to fit inside the forge or the passthrough on a pro?


#4

If I am correct, that is the Master Sword that came with the Collectors Edition of Zelda Breath of the Wild. Which means its the size of a letter opener, so yes it can fit easily.

It is also something I think is awesome. :slight_smile:


#5

So your saying I can’t halve a guy with it? No fun there…


#6

If you wanto to do that you need something like this


#7

Sure you can…either little elves or lots of whacks :slight_smile:

When you come across a body in the forest that’s split in half, you don’t stop to argue technique and criticize the number of strokes required :smile:


#8

Fair enough

Want to insert south park clip of Cartman trying to kill Kyle with a Wiffle bat

So enough derailing…(my bad)

Anyone have a better answer then the above?
