This week we are laser cutting and engraving an awesome wooden toy airplane on our Speedy 300 laser machine! We use 1/8" MDF wood.
We made this plane in our TroSpace Makerspace in our facility in Calgary, AB. The space is open for educators and those in the Makerspace and Fablab movements.
Step 1: Download Artwork File
You can download the artwork file as an CorelDraw or Adobe Illustrator file. The red hairline outline (0.001") represents the the cut line and should be RBG Red, and the fill RBG Black and Turquoise are the different engraving levels.
Step 2: Laser cut and engrave
We used the Speedy 300 flexx laser machine (60w) to cut and engrave the 1/8" MDF wood.
Engraving setting: 85 Power, 85 Speed
Cutting setting: 85 Power, 0.9 Speed

Step 3: Assembly
There aren't a lot of parts so assembly is minimal. You would need crazy glue to glue together all the parts and hinges.
