    Progress!

    WoooHoo!

    Tonight I got the CNC switch plate cut out on the laser. We did it in cardboard for proof of concept. I discovered a new definition for CAD. Cardboard Assisted Design. The plate fits. I will make the screw holes smaller and then cut it out in acrylic. You can see the switches will fit perfectly. The laser is a very cool tool.

    Big learning curve here for me. So I am stoked!

    Very cool! Nice clean job. How long did it take to cut out?

    Didn't really time it but my sense is about 2 minutes. The acrylic may take longer. I don't know yet.
