group assignment: characterize your lasercutter, making test part(s) that vary cutting settings and dimensions

Individual assignment: cut something on the vinylcutter design, lasercut, and document a parametric press-fit construction kit, accounting for the lasercutter kerf, which can be assembled in multiple ways

What I did

  • Learned to use vinyl cutter
  • learned to use fab modules
  • Learned to operate Trotec 100 laser cutter
  • Tried parametric design for the first time
  • Found kerf value for laser cutter

Vinyl cutting

This is the first week we are inroduced to machines and I am really exited. This week we have both group and individual assignmens. The week assignment is to vinyl cut something and to laser cut any press-fit components which can be fixed in different ways.
