I am looking to see if I can make a 3D Pirate Ship Puzzle - I have no idea where to start

I am hoping to make a 3D Pirate Ship Puzzle. I am brand new to the GlowForge and know someone who would love a pirate ship puzzle. If anyone has any ideas for how I would get a template or knows what steps I can take to make one, I would greatly appreciate it.

you had the thought, THAT IS THE BEST START!
start google image pirate ships to give you ideas what it should look like
and Take it from there!!!



I would suggest using the puzzle trick in the GFUI on an engraved photo of a pirate ship at this point.


A pirate ship is a pretty complicated 3d form to start with.
Do you have any experience with 3D design software?

If not, I’d suggest studying a premade laser cut pirate ship, for example


MakeCNC has some great models – you might check there.

Please note, I am not intending to actually build it. I want to give the puzzle to someone to build.
