  • Doug Eltoft asked John Kostman to make an item that demonstrates one of the capabilities of the staff and the equipment in the Engineering Electronics Shop. John chose to make something from a laser sliceform in dxf format. (You can, of course, google that to see what sort of patterns he had to choose from.) Autodesk 123D can create files that turns a 3D model into 2D build plans. Because the pattern he downloaded (from the Epilog Laser sample club) already had the 2D slices created, John didn't have to do that, but he recommends 123D to anyone wanting to do this sort of project.
