Seems like most of the post in “Made on a Glowforge” are finished projects. This one is more of a first test. Maybe you will be inspired to try one too.
I used the artwork I made for a book nook since after I made it I realized it might be better suited for a layered paper shadow box.
Went through a few different design directions, spacers and stacking. I made a generic box and friction fitted everything. I should be able to recut a new design and reload it.
5mm Columbia Purebond
.15in amazon cardboard
LED strip with basic inline controller
Next time make a smaller prototype. This box is 6 inches square. There is a lot of paper waste. If I had made it 5x5 I could have ganged up two to a page.
I need to use a tacky mat or a vacuum table like @evansd2 Vacuum tray replacement for cutting lightweight materials
Some of the cutouts fluttered when cutting and made an irregular cut.
Cardboard spacers could have been nested better.
