Making the Map of Tamriel from The Elder Scrolls

Hey Everyone!
Made a new map!

Every time I make a new map, I get asked the same questions: What is my process, what materials do I use, and how do I create my files.

Well In this video, I walk through my map-making process for the Map of Tamriel from the Elder Scrolls series and dive into how I optimize my files for a laser cutter.

I talk through my iPad process as well as the Glowforge. This isn’t necessarily supposed to be a tutorial as much as it is an explanation about how we do it. If you guys really want a full walkthrough tutorial, let me know!

If you don’t want to learn how we make out files, feel free to skip to minute marker 8:08 -

Link to the video where I go over how I make my Map files

Thank you, everyone, for all your support. This community is so friendly and encouraging! I hope you guys find this video beneficial and if you have any more questions, feel free to let us know!

Edit- Laser files are available for sale - There is also the finished product for sale but you all have laser cutters lol so figured I would share the laser file listing.
