The adventure of making 400 displays

Not fully made on the GlowForge but it all started there and has evolved into this. Making 400 of these beauties and while it’s a rough journey, it’s totally worth it. Some of you may remember the Eye of Stormlight license adventure and all that. Here’s what I have been doing for the last 3 months. And will be doing for another 2-3 months.

I’ve taken a lot of photos.



The scraps stack can get… Very tall.

Proper packaging is very important.

That’s super. It reminds me of Martin Raynsfords (@m_raynsford ) photos of his various kickstarter projects. Piles of lasered things and boxes, boxes, boxes.

Great job, especially on the packaging. Out of everything involved with putting a product out there, I think the packaging is the hardest part!!!

Yep, leftover material. I was able to cut down a lot of waste by getting some of it cut smaller than usual, this reducing mat leftover. My acrylic leaves only .25" around the whole cut when done.
