I've been a fan of the Star Wars Snow Flakes since I first saw them and have recently been making a few for Matters of Grey. This got me tinkering with Inkscape to get the files just how I liked them.

This tinkering lead to, well tinkering and I thought what the world need now is Iron Man, sweet Iron Man, as a snow flake!


Unfortunately the symmetry in this is a bit too simple for a good old fashioned paper snow flake (D6H if I remember rightly - like Benzene). This only has axial symmetry so you can cut out from a folded in half bit of paper or like me, add acrylic to laser cutter, upload file and press FIRE!

Do you have a .stl???

Love Inkscape... How did I ever live without this before today!!!

Sweet! Nice Job! You need to get these up on the site so you can get some cut and sold ready for Xmas (although alot of the ones you have done so far are good for all year round!) SELL SELL SELL! :)

Very nice. I would be very interested in getting the files, or at least some tips on how you made the files, for the star wars snow flakes also. I have downloaded the pdf but I haven't had any luck converting them to .dxf using automatic software. I think the only way I'm going to be able to do it is to re-draw them by hand in cad. Is that what you did? 

Pete is right, inkscape is key here! I used it to import PDFs and edit the star wars ones. This star was made by drawing over the top (tracing) some images I googled (they're in the svg so you can see how I did it).
It's a great program. Download it and get tinkering!

OK, thanks. I didn't realize inkscape could import pdfs.

 DylanFM, you should be able to grab the SVG file and open it in Inkscape. (Inkscape is open source, and available for Mac, Windows, and Linux.)

From Inkscape you can output a DXF file, or other formats that might be useful.
