After the this feedback of my first Bend Spiral Bowl I started to research for an improvement that would make the built easier. It took me a darn whole day and several prototype to realize, that it couldn't be easier than this: after breaking the spiral arms several time I started to water the wood and heat it up in the microwave oven. As last time I used a suitable bowl to bend the arms into position. Now I discovered that you don't even need those brackets. When cooled and dried the arms stay in position and just a little drop of woodglue secures them completely.

My build was done on a desktop cnc-machine by Stepcraft from 6 mm birch plywood using a spiral-toothed 1.2 mm flute.

how to use *.dxf for createbot mini ??

Sorry, this design will not work for a printer. You need a cnc-mill or a laser cutter

I am going to give it a try with a laser! Will let you know this week. Shame of burned sides but...

It probably won't work with MDF. Stay with birch plywood!
