One of my friends has been asking me to make him a golf marker. Apparently the general requirements around that are to have something round and about the size of a large coin or the ball that you can place on the ground instead of the ball itself. I liked the idea of a tiny spaceship and I had some 1/4" Corian scraps that would provide some material for it, so I started looking for suitable pictures to use on the web. Once I found one and converted it into vector (not actually a requirement since I was only going to etch it, but for future use it’s good to have one that scales) I was almost ready to go. First I had to do some testing to see if I could actually cut through it and luckily those went well.
It’s only 2 inches long so seems about the right scale. Fun to see all the little etching lines so detailed.
I gave it a quick covering with black sharpie on the top and wiped it down with an alcohol swab to bring out the details a bit more.
Hopefully he’ll be pleased and it will work well for his intended use
