Mateos sent us a plan for his YakZilla park flyer, Robus put on his project hat and we got to it…
The super cool CNC cutter with sticker sheet loaded into it
Plans were scanned into the magical vector program and cut as stickers, here they are with transfer sheet ver them
Peeling the transfer sheet
The stickers were then applied to a bit of hardboard
To the shed!
One of those ‘Photosynth’ pictures, looks cool on my phone!
Fire up the bandsaw! Robus cutting around the stickers on the hardoard to make templates
Quickly knock up a hot wire using a bit of nitinol, a 12v battery & a power supply
Hot wire cutter take 2, battery wasn’t good enough, it was replaced with this fancy shmancy power unit we knocked up years ago (and still works!)
Screw the templates onto the foam block
Pop the whole lot through the hot wire cutter
Put your back into it!
Tah dah! We now have the parts cut in 100mm EPP, these will then be sliced into 9mm versions. Hopefully.
A while later we set up another jig and cut the bits into slices
Quality Assurance check!
