The MakerFaire Robot Mascot adapted for 2D cutting. I designed these for my company to hand out at MakerFaire Pittsburgh 2015. We used our Water Jet CNC machine to cut these out of craft foam, but they also look great in acrylic!

One is just the base robot and the other has a loop in the head for attaching to a key ring. Current Scaling Produces a roughly 2" Tall by 1.9" Wide little robot. Perfect size for a keychain. Half scale size produces a pretty nice earing!

How I Designed This

I used the trace bitmap tool in Inkscape to get the basic geometry, then cleaned up the lines and adapted it in favor of 2D cutting in SolidWorks. Exported it from SolidWorks as a DXF and then used DraftSight for final scaling.
