Well, I finally picked the little LaserNut up from UPS and got it all setup on the kitchen counter. I wanted to get going to I thought I’d just use the kitchen fume hood as my venting solution (temporarily?!).
I got everything setup and had my wife come down to take a look. I just love this picture of her just looking into it with my little Zeus assisting!
As I was going through the tutorial files, I had her draw something up. She had the words all in one line so I did two traces to break them up and stack them on top of each other. Since I couldn’t rotate the tracings, I rotated the plaque vectors to get them a little bit better aligned. Thought this turned out quite nicely, though I think in the future I’d scan it in and process it in Illustrator so I can save out the tracings and use them again later.
