Bird ready for laser cutting or 3d printing.

Derived from http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:41823.
Each layer was converted into .STL and into vectors ready for laser cutting. The original thing only had a step file and could not be used easily.
I will 3d print this bird some time soon and post pictures. Sorry no .DXF but my Inkscape install is on the fritz and will not export anything useful. I leave that step up to anyone who wants to laser cut the bird.
I Converted the original step file with free software into something usable. I used Free Cad to read the original step file. ReplicatorG to orient the .stl files. , Open Scad and Slic3r to convert the .STLs into 2D .SVGs, and Inkscape to layout.
For laser cutting the original took 2mm material but the bird can be scaled for other sizes. Cut one of each .SVG included. Inkscape when working properly will convert into a .DXF. Edit: I missed to pieces the first time around. The are added in the second .SVG file now.
For printing: Print two of each that end in "-2" and one of each that end in "-1".
For both: Pick colors to make a pretty birdie.
