Puzzled??

Postby Picengravertoo » Tue Mar 15, 2016 4:08 pm

We found this inkscape extension to generate puzzle vector patterns, so I decided to give a try.

We created a 10" X 10" puzzle in inkscape and saved it to a DXF format. We then imported the file into KeyCreator to generate the gcode for cutting it with our 6W laser diode.

We first TTL laser engraved (pulsed on/off) a B&W image on 1/8" Birch Ply the same size as the puzzle pattern we created, then cut through the Birch Ply afterwards. It has a total of 144 pieces.

I couldn't get the link above to work.
That is Good!! Was that cut through with the 6W laser, or did you cut through afterword's with something else?

Hi Jerry,

That web page is down at the moment. Here is the direct download page on Github.

Yes, I cut though it after engraving the image with the 6W Laser.
