Classes > Computer-Controlled Cutting
The assignment for this class is to make a press-fit construction kit. As I'm already used to work with the lasser cutter, I just wanted to test the Inkscape cloning tool that was shown in the class, as I use Inkscape sometimes for vectorizing raster images, but not for designing things.
So I made a simple kit of 4 geometrical shapes with a number of slots that follows the fibonacci sequence, 1, 2, 3 and 5. I made an initial slot and cloned it to make the others, so I could adjust their width just modifing the first one. As I wantd to use 3mm material, I started with a 2.85mm slot.
Then I lasercutted a set on 3mm cardboard to test it and it worked smoothly. As I said I'm used to the lassercutter so I did things like this before, for example for 3mm acrylic I use 2.95mm for a nice fit on my lasercutter.
