Nice design. I do question the safeness of cutting the heat sink in half, as the size of the heatsink is calculated in engineering for that particular LED's wattage.

Nice. Looks like something Cricut can do as well (cheaper than a laser too).
Always wanted to learn this. Now I can make an airplane.

Excellent. Thanks for giving a way to get started.

Just great. Now I have to buy a Mercedes to make this (j/k) :)
Another option for software is Blender. There is also a script for CAM in Blender. And it's free open source software. It's a steep learning curve, but if you keep at it, you'll love it. 3D, 2D laser cut scripts, as well as an amazing render engine.
Just want to add that I see you used foam in the floor, that is fine, the radiant barrier is most effective in the roof and wall areas, not floor.
Good article. I would do one upgrade and instead of the foam, I would use radiant barrier foam which is the same plus aluminum that reflects the radiant heat away from the inside making is much more comfortable. In the attached pic I used it to seal up our door as the sun was baking through the metal door making it unbearable; in the shade! It is so much better in that area now.
I would consider using Radiant barrier foam in the ceiling and walls. Makes a big difference especially on a small dwelling like this. In pic attached, I used it for the door opening (behind roll up door) and it was an amazing difference. More important in warm climates.
Looks good. I had one like this in my mind for some time now. Only thing I would do extra is color epoxy and pour in the holes like this test image I'm attaching.
Good update. I second that motion. -elec tech
Your circuit diagram does not look right to me.
Nice job. I also find and dismantle pallets from behind our industrial park warehouse. If you look on craigslist, someone is always giving them away. Try to get the ones marked HT for heat treated instead of some other chemical treated. Also, to dismantle, HomeDepot sells an 'indexing head wrecking bar' that works great on pallets. If you do a lot, the $78 for it is not bad. Saves your back.
Thanks, just in time. Hopefully I can get this fixed before Mom returns.
