Time for some Cardboard Sword action using the Laser Cutter at Techshop!
Step 1: Sketch
First I started with a super detailed scribbly sketch of a cool looking sword that I'm going to use as a Template.
Step 2: Import
I imported the sketch into Illustrator and created a vector version for the Laser Cutter.
Step 3: Assembly
With the pieces cut, I recruited a good friend Elmer to help put things together.
Step 4: Glue, Glue, Glue.
I glued the pieces and stacked them together according to the precise calculations of my initial sketch.
