Out of boredom, a big flexible sheet of wood was made

#2

How long did it take


#3

As one does!


#4

Can anyone in your neighborhood still breathe? The ISS crew reported a large smoke plume coming from @bbum’s house today notable from space obscuring large parts of the US; cause is under investigation…


#5

I’d like to see a speed comparison between that, and rotating the art 90*. The up-right-down-repeat must add a ton of time vs a full width dash-dash-dash-dash, no?


#6

A little over an hour.


#7

Heh-- I’m seriously looking forward to the filter (sometime in June, last I checked).

Smells just a bit camp-fire-y in the side yard. :).

As it is now winter, there are a handful of active fireplaces in the 'hood. I blend in.


#8

The path planning is seriously sub-optimal for this. Left-to-right rows of small cuts.

Would rotating 90º cause it to do each line of dash-dash-dash separately? I.e. is the path planner fixated on horizontal movement?


#9

horizontal movement is preferred to vertical, but that would probably get broken into smaller sections. (I’ve seen stuff go both way, but horizontal movement is faster than vertical.)


#10

I made a post a while back about changing the path direction which can increase efficiency… it may or may not be worth it - it just depends on the job and how often you are running the job.


#11

Already you are bored?

Looks great though!


#12

Not really boredom. More out of a desire to burn something and not having time to do a design. :slight_smile:


#13

Now that I can totally understand.


#14

Other stuff to do, but don’t like the glowforge sitting there not working so…

yeah, I feel that.

#15

Cool sheet!:sunglasses:


#16

Now to figure out how to turn that into a piece of clothing for fashion week. LOL
