Okay, last one folks…and up front: a HUGE Thank You to the experts for their invaluable assistance, to everyone who does not consider themselves an expert (yet) for letting me sneak all these files in early; and to everyone who commented, because I got a ton of new ideas from it…
To @dan and Glowforge : This serves as a limited license to use any of the files I have posted, or will post, in this Free Laser Designs Category for testing purposes during the design of the software, and if the designs work, you may also use any physical objects created from those files for display at Maker Events if you wish, with two exceptions: Sheep Trivet, and Ridiculously Fancy Grill Rack Hook. (Although freely distributed on the internet, specific permission to use them this way was not obtained from the original jpeg artists before their designs were modified and incorporated into my designs, so those may not be displayed in a public forum.)
That’s it…just wanted to get that out there.
(EVERYBODY reading this: Start loading up some designs! They need test cases to work out how their software is going to work, and to check to make sure that the stuff designed in one program translates the same way as the stuff designed in another program. They need beginners and experts and everybody in between. Now is the time to get what you think the Glowforge ought to be able to do out there where they can see it!).
Pirate Treasure Chest
Be kind on this one, because it was built it from scratch, without using box tab generators, so I’m not sure how it will look once the tabs are connected. (Not a straight up and down shaped box. Might not work.)
This is what I’m shooting for:
Inkscape (Oval Box Generator)
(BTW: results copied from Inkscape into Illustrator cause a Validation error when you try to open an SVG file saved from Illustrator later. Solution: You guessed it, rework the imported results in AI before saving the SVG.)
Treasure Chest2.zip (5.9 KB)
Note: File has been updated to include some cross beams, which you are going to need to attach hardware.
Thanks again guys & gals!
