Ordinary bicycle stencil

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Below, an outline drawing of an ordinary bicycle. I'm going to laser cut it out of card stock and use it as a stencil. It's forming the basis of an article I'm writing about making stencils. Photos once that's all done. ordinary-bicycle.png

Your new friend the laser cutter

Back in May, I made a fancy pants guide for the laser cutter at ThingTank. It covers all the basics of vector graphics and the specific basics of the VersaLaser. I originally designed the booklet to be printed out. Just this week, I finally got around to tidying the manual into a digital-friendly version. It's a little specific to the laser/environment at ThingTank, but also useful for looking at the basic ideas of vector graphics and their relationship with lasers.

Download the booklet if you want.
