Ever since reading Clarke’s Imperial Earth when in school, I’ve been fascinated with Pentominoes. After printing the Tangram earlier this week, I wanted to see if I could make a small “travel-sized” Pentominoes set.
I created the pattern from scratch in Illustrator, but it would have been just as easy in AD or even Inkscape. I have a few tweaks and instructions I want to add to the file, but intent to posting it to the “Free Laser Patterns” area soon.
In the meantime, here it is rendered out of Maple ply. Print time 1m50s…
Ok, who can make a 3x20 rectangle without checking solutions on their phone/google/WolframAlpha?
Note the “storage solution” is engraved in the box. Scored at 1/197, I’m looking forward to the return of the kindler, gentler, GF settings from last week.
BTW, this was the 2nd prototype. The first attempt, using non ply with 3rd party masking, caught on fire . Hey, happens to the best of them… One damp towel application and a quick material swap, and I was back in business.
