I drew this globe in Corel Draw , the globe have 250mm diameter and consists of seven rings and twenty four stringers to fitting. I did the drawing to be cut in 4mm material. Remember, if you think about increase or decrease the drawing so you must use a material as thick as the rabbet is.
The result is a solid structure, it don´t need be glued.

To original scale you need to use 3mm thickness material like plywood or acrylic.
IMPORTANT! , before cut all pieces make a test, cut only one part where have a rabbet and check if your material fit on it, if not , scale the drawing according to thickness of the material that you will use.

This is awesome! The file seems to not be there though :(

Would love to make one of these but the files are not there! Could you repost them or the link to their current location? Thank you!

hola buen día, felicidades por éste gran diseño me gustaría tener la oportunidad de elaborarlo para aplicarlo en mi escuela como material didáctico, por favor indicar como lo puedo obtener

Great job. I'd really like to be able to cut this on my scroll saw. How can I go about getting the design plans sir?

please repost downloadable file!

Hello thank you very much for this project.

But i'm really need the files for create this globe for a big project,

Somebody could help me please ?

Thank you again !

is it me or have the download links disappeared? I really want to make this! Can you please repost the files?!

Really cool part! I scaled the whole thing down and printed it in 3mm MDF. Also by scaling it to 3mm I could cut all the parts out of a single piece of 900mm X 600mm MDF. :)

Nice ! you did a good job, i cutted mine in my 600x400mm machine in 2 or 3 parts.

i saw u used right speed cut cause cutting look light brown. ( some guy use small laser to cut thick wood , it led cutline black and carbonized)

Yeah it came off the machine pretty nice. I have a 120W laser that's 1200 X 900 and I cut it out at 35% Laser Power and 25mm/sec Feed Rate. If the sheet is sitting flat 3mm often cuts well at 30% power and 30mm/sec Speed.

I have cut 12mm MDF on my laser but I have to go slow and the edge does look burnt. See http://www.sharemake.com/groups/laser-cutters/forum/topic/what-have-you-been-laser-cutting-lately/http://www.sharemake.com/group...

J'aime beaucoup.

Bois ou PMMA, Extra ...

Mais une question, pourquoi effectuer des encoches suppl
émentaires dans les rainures ?
I really like.
Wood or PMMA, Extra ...
But one question, why make extra notches in the grooves?

Hi Souriceau,

you refer to those round holes? well, in mechanics it serves to relieve the tension of the material in the contact area, and it help in design look , actually the stringers should also have it in the same place that the rings, so the two circles form a small globe :)

hello can you post it in dxf format plz

Hi Ricklaser - would you be able to post the file again?
Thanks a lot!!
