Shoji Votive Candle Holder


#1

Ok trying to make this catalog votive but i cant seem to find the cuts for the acrylic. When
I reset the pattern it just has the base and sides and such but not the acrylic cuts.
Help please :slight_smile:

There should be a second page with that one that has the Acrylic cuts on it. (Check the Dashboard to make sure they both downloaded.) :slightly_smiling_face:

this is all i see


#4

On the Dashboard you should have a separate page for the Acrylic.


#5

Go back to app.glowforge.com and look for page 2.

The cuts are in separate files because they are different materials.


#6

got it, thank you so much!


#7

Got them cut but I cant seem to get them together. I know Which goes where but they are super tight and dont seem to want to fit. Talking about the base itself not the acrylic.


#8

What thickness is the material you cut them from? I made a bazillion of these out of all four types of medium :proofgrade: plywood for my parents’ 60th anniversary celebration, and didn’t have any issues with assembly.


#9

Medium walnut, I even used a rubber mallet to lightley tap them and ended up breaking because of how tight everything was.


#10

That’s really strange. Have you measured your PG walnut? I wonder if you got a bad batch, somehow?

There is the remote possibility you slightly resized the cut file whilst moving it. I think almost everyone has done this at some point.

Before trying again, I’d suggest opening the file in the app, clicking the “3-dots” button, and selecting “reset design” to make absolutely sure everything is the correct size/scale.

Best of luck.
