Gingerforge!


#1

With some dough and candy left over from another gingerbread project, I thought I’d try my hand at making a 1/4-scale gingerbread Glowforge.

If you open the lid, you can see the laser tube, the honeycomb grid, the laser head and gantry, and a little circuit board. Oh, also the work-in-progress that just finished being cut.

Of course, it’s 100% edible, as all such creations should be. And all I could think while I was making it was how much easier it might be if I could laser-cut the pieces. :slight_smile:

Wait wait wait, your comment infers that the real GF isn’t edible . I thought CO2 laser engravers were delicacies. I may of been mislead by the marketing videos.

Future and past tech :smile::smile:

Whoa! Circuit board? Laser head and laser cut gingerbread boy? Lid? I may be biased, but I think you outdid yourself. I like the GF even more than the retro Apple 2 computer. Go :glowforge: - Rich

I was especially amused by the use of wafer cookie for the gantry bed and candy cane for the CO2 tube. :laughing: Excellent abuse of confectionary textures! :smiley:
