Hi Rivers! This was extremely simple...I just imported the model in 123D software (Autodesk) and it sliced for me...

WOW! How do you make that? How do you make a 3d model and make it for a laser cutting machine?

Instructions

This lasercut Tintin Moonship was derived from Thing 746, modeled by Batist.
I scaled the original model a little bit to make a 25cm (10 inch) tall rocket.
I uploaded all the plans ready to cut.
All you need is:
- 2 sheets of 3mm thick MDF (or cardboard, plywood, acrylic...) with 60x30 cm
- Multi purpose white glue (if you use MDF or cardboard) or Weld On for acrylic

First Step: Cut the attached files in a laser cutter
Second Step: If you choose to work with MDF or plywood, you may have some extra work sanding the edges.
Third step: Clean and separate the pieces, following the numbers engraved on each one. Note that you have 3 sets of numbers, from 1 to 15 identified like 1-1, 2-1, 3-1...1-2, 2-2, 3-2...1-3, 2-3, 3-3 and so on. That's because the rocket have three "legs", one set of fifteen pieces for each one.
Fourth and final: Glue the parts, beginning from bottom (1) to up (71)

That's it, you have a Tintin Moonship ready for your kid (or you...)
