Introduction: 3D Eiffel Tower With Laser Cuter

This is my first Instructable

so

hope you like it :)

Step 1: Find Model

First, we need to find a solid Eiffel Tower model. In picture, i use Thingiverse to get the model i want. You can use other site like GrabCAD or you can make one by yourself.

Step 2: "Slice" the Model

An easy and fast way to slice the model is using 123D Make from Autodesk. And it's free :)

Download and install it. Then open the app and following pictures.

Step 3: Add More Thing...

Now, let's open the .dxf file and add some stuff :)

1. Rearrange the layers

2. And create holder layers.

Step 4: Assemble and Finish.

Before cutting, remember to offset the line first to be sure it's fit together when assemble. My (left) one was failed so i had to add some glue to it :D

Hope you like it ;)

    This looks awesome. I would love to make one of these. Is there any way you could save it as an AI file?

    2 replies

    you can import dxf file to ai file

    Note:

    Illustrator will not open AutoCAD files saved in a version later than AutoCAD 2007.

    sure, this is AI file for you. Remember to offset the lines when cutting

    This is inspiring! I did something similar if you look at my Instructables mine was multiple frames for animation. But your 3-D effect is really cool

    thanks :)
    i like your similar one, it's cool with light
    may be i will add some light for this one :D

    Nice job. I like the idea of your holder layers rather than using glue between the layers or fasteners.
