Hey, it's cool. Please let me know if your shop is able to do it. Fact is, I probably did not explain this well enough on the Archivist pages.
Hi Daniel,
It seems that everything is working !! :lol: :lol: :lol:
Here is a test cut:

In the last image, show two pieces of 9mm that will be glued to form 18mm. (The maximum laser capacity is 9mm)

Two Issues:

1. I need help in this regard: viewtopic.php?f=24&t=3479

2. The "Cradle Wing, the company can not open the file, which is in .STL ... If anyone has in another file type: .DXF or .DWG...

hugs,
Gustavo.

Hmm, not sure why this is not in the main zip file. I think it ended up that way because these parts are designed to be cut from 1/2" material. The DXF does not include the mitered angle on the edge of the part, you will probably need to create that manually.

You may also find this guide useful: https://makezine.com/projects/make-41-t ... k-scanner/

I did that guide in conjunction with Make Magazine. To be honest, I'm not thrilled with it. They require you to provide an "alternative" for any part in the design. There are some pretty stupid alternatives that ended up in the tutorial. Still, it is a solid guide that will help you understand some of the build issues.
