Laser Christmas Ornament

This is my first real laser project on my Ortur LM3 10 watt.  It was a design I found on the web and is cut from 1/8" Bass Plywood.  i think it took just under 30 minutes to cut and was done in 2 passes with 300 mm per minute at 90% power. The new enclosure works well to exhaust the smoke.

Ryan/// ~sigh~ I blew up another bowl. Moke told me "I made the inside bigger than the outside".

thats pretty cool birds ! lasers can be very addictive,

working with my hands is a joy,it gives me a sense of fulfillment,somthing so many seek and so few find.-SAM MALOOF.

Good work!

Looks like you could paint it easily before stretching to out.


That is cool Bi'e49....Great to see a(nother) laser cut project posted.

No idea whether you're into puzzles, however, even if you're not, they make a great stocking stuffer for Christmas.

I have worked with a shitload of em at various stages of difficulty.  I've only posted my new ones here at CN, however, they are all on LJ... All, files are available for download, however, format may be an issue. 
CorelDraw files might be the best way to go to create SVG files using Inkscape.

he only downside is that my laser designs are based on 3mm and 6mm... however 1/8" and 1/4" can easily be resized... a tad easier than the other way.

If your first cut is too short... Take the second cut from the longer end... LBD

Unique looking Christmas ornament>.  Nice work.
That's nice looking. Is it as fragile as it looks? 
I've never used basswood ply and don't know how much it can take before it snaps. I've got a laser project that needs to have some flex without snapping. Needs to bend about 1/8" over a 2" length, so it would take some force to do it.
Did you buy it online?

I bought the basswood sheets on Amazon.  It cuts very well but is somewhat fragile.  I broke a couple before deciding to go back and make some out of 1/8" BB.   I cut the Basswood in two passes but needed three passes for the BB.   The BB is much less fragile.  I cut the inside part from the Basswood as it is faster.

Thanks for the info.
