I am a software engineering manager at an aerospace company so it is sometimes difficult to surprise my team. Enter a new Glowforge (yay!) I am in the middle of transitioning to a new home and am doing renovations so I have not had a lot of time to play and am teaching myself how to use AI, but I wanted to do something special for my team for all of their efforts in 2018.
I invited them out to dinner and made these invitations using Cards of Wood maple sheets and a modification of sylviev’s free design shared at http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3184419.
I had the best time watching them dissect each item.
“You made this?”
“Wait, this is wood?”
“How’d you do that?”
“It is an ornament too?”
"Are these airplane snowflakes?
“How’d you embed the magnets?”
“It makes a satisfying clicking noise when it closes.”
It was just as fun as making them.
Thanks to all of you who have provided such great designs, settings, guidance, and most of all encouragement for all of us newbies! I’m not sure I would have made something this cool on my own…yet.
I love this group of people, your inspiration, and ideas. Thanks for welcoming me to the Glowforge family.
