Hey all! Long time lurker, first time poster.
Several years ago I built this: https://youtu.be/zod8Rc2cijQ
This is a system called “Wikihouse” where you use a CNC router to essentially mill a flat pack house.
I’ve been working on the system ever since. I’ve recently gotten access to a Glowforge, and rather than prototyping at full scale I decided to take a crack at going 1/5th scale using some 1/8th birch ply:
I (re)designed the Wikihouse system using SketchUp and I exported the vectors using Fabber (a plugin I designed)
From there I scaled it down to about 20% of it’s original size so I could cut it out of the birch, and did some offsets to account for the laser kerf. After that I had a press together house frame.
Laser cutting really helped me work through some of the “build-ability” at smaller scale before I go full size.
I’ll keep posting pictures as I cut more! (right now I’m re-working some of the joints)
