How compact do you like your laptop?

IMG_3208

Bringing you the miniature laptop featuring Rio, the unofficial Glowforge mascot. I’ve course I asked Rio for his permission, and he was stoked! His best pal, @jbmanning5 , wrote the textbook on photo engraving and did the photo manipulation. The keyboard I adapted from the premium design features.

For personal use only as per forum guidelines.

Notes for best result:

  • I used :proofgrade:proofgrade medium basswood ply.
  • Pin the sheet to the tray with a honeycomb pin.
  • Set the screen and mousepad lines to score instead of cut and set all other steps to ignore.
  • When done, peel off the masking off the screen only, be careful not to move the sheet.
  • Now set the score step to ignore and the rest to engrave and cut respectively.
  • The screen has a tight fit and may need a gentle hammer tap. Once positioned it should be tight enough so you can angle the screen without it coming apart.

This is the first in a line of electronic miniatures - so stay tuned!

Glad you like them! There are other miniatures in the Free Design section as well - look for orchestra instruments as well - we had a spate of them last year.

At last, I can afford a laptop for all 11 grandchildren. :smile:
