40 parts - all cut on the Glowforge - plus 12 straight pins and you end up with a bridge 3" long and 3/4" tall.
Awesome. Goes to show what the GF can really do. My current project is along the same lines just not that small. It’s a wooden bridge train bridge from the old west.
Thanks, I spend most of my GF efforts on miniatures - model railroads & dollhouse miniatures. In unison with a 3D printer I have been able to accomplish some unique ideas. Would like to see your bridge if you are willing.
Excellent. I am impressed with the cuts, but even more impressed with the meticulous assembly.
Be more than happy too when it’s competed. I’m only about a quarter done with the design. It will an HO Scale of a 210 foot bridge. Then I’m going to attempt the Goat Canyon Bridge in San Diego that i visited when i lived there. It is one awesome bridge it’s 600 by 750 feet. If anyone is out that way it’s a must see if you love history…
Wow! Very impressive.
Darn, everybody already used up the good comments, but I had to say SOMETHING…
Oh, here’s one: Whoa, that’s totally cool!
I love tiny things! The dime really gives it scale. You need a teeny horse or person now.
What material did you use for this project?
The roadway of the bridge is 1/16" plywood and the trusses plus all the trim are 0.025 & 0.015 laserboard. The bridge is in N Scale (1:160) and is a scale 48’ long
“… about a quarter done…” so if you make a smaller one, it will be a DIME done?
we see what you did there
golly I crack myself up sometimes. not all the time mind you.
If you say so…
Awesome project, thanks for sharing!
With so many small parts, how’d you keep them from falling into the crumb tray?
Fantastic! I just got my glowforge a week ago but am planning on miniatures too. Been working on some basic 1:144 scale houses to figure out settings.
I’m always fascinated by the tiny scraps a job can produce, but I’ve never thought to build anything out of them. Great job!
To keep the tiny parts from falling into the crumb tray I leave small tabs on selected parts so that nothing can fall out of the cutting sheet. Then, with an Xacto knife I remove each part from the sheet. Many of the parts are also scored to simulate cracks between boards and nail holes.
small size matters
WOW! Very beautiful, good job!
This is really neat … Nicely done!
