WIP Cupcake Stand

I had difficulty getting the first layer to align with the pro pass through. The stand was good enough as a prototype to use for my Niece’s bridal shower.

I used Rhino 3d to create the original drawing. This caused an interesting issue when I uploaded the dxf files. GlowForge showed 3 layers and was cutting with 3 passed before I figured out why the cuts were taking hours to complete. The dxf files also caused cuts to occur at mid point intersections.
I am sure someone has discovered this with dxf files previously.

There are several free online converters that you can run that file through and make it into an SVG. Something like that shouldn’t take hours!

Thanks. I have found it rather difficult to find what I am looking for.

I enjoy the process of drawing up the design in CAD anyway.

This was a test to see which parts I could laser cut, and which parts I want to 3d Print.

My intent is to make it so that the tiers can rotate. Easy with a dowel and bearing, but I wanted more to the design than 3 circles with a dowel.
