Hi i am new here and wanted to know what you think of this and what i could do i was thinking jewelry but also maybe art type things as well heres something i just did
I think it would snap in a number of places if it were smaller (jewellery size).I'm no expert, by any means, but the J,S,S have weaker spots at the top and base of J, base of both S's.I also have a concern about the E ending into the S, although I think that might be ok, since there are other supports.The base of the J is the only thing holding onto the entire top left half, (because of the cutaway at the top).
Further Questions and development areas :
wow thanks for all this!!! I am somewhat new with this and yes it is a P3 what would you recommend as jewelry size? and what about a scale ratio and key. not sure about material yet ..... thinking maybe the bamboo or the plastic
I'd suggest you figure out what size you want to make it, or them (and it doesn't have to just be one size either, but start with something small - go slow and master what you want to do). If you have access to a printer, print it out at realsize (100% zoom/actual size). Libraries often have printers if you don't have access. Email it to yourself.
You need to rework the designs to eliminate the weak spots. See if you can do the same sort of design, more balanced on where the hole and connections are. Tip : fill it to see the shape, don't work in lines just yet - do that last. Fill it, Print it out, and turn it upside down from you, then look at the path and spacings. Turning it upside down will allow you to see it for what it is and the balance of it, without getting distracted by the letters.
I am using Inkscape program
Haha! I completly missed that one. :)
here is something a bit different but done to about 3.48
That's better. Check your designs though, especially the corners and line intersections. Some of the lines are not matching up and will do weird things to your laser cuts.
Keep going, you're doing well.
