I’ve been working on this design for some time while waiting for my Glowforge to arrive. It is one of three wings in a dragonfly design.

It was clear from the first few seconds that my first try was a charred mess, so I aborted and tweaked the design to better account for the kerf, but I think I overcompensated. I’m also not sure about this paper. It is a scrap of thick photopaper from the large format printer at work, and it appears to have a shiny lamination on one side that might not be the best laser fodder. Will try again this weekend.

UPDATE:


Almost there!


Just right.

A part of me likes the “almost there” version better.
