Guns at Dawn

This weekend I was very busy at the Fablab and got numerous jobs done the first of which was the gun magazine (File is available here Shopbot PDF) Using the computer controlled Shopbot, I initially created my file in inkscape which is a free drawing program which was then saved off in a PDF format ready for importing into the Shopbot software to create my tools paths. I did need to do some editing to my original file as the lines need to be continuous so layering shapes just confuses the machine, so lesson learned there. It was great to see the magazine parts appear from a solid block of wood!
