Gorgeous! Thanks for the glass cutting resources.
Thank you for sharing such a well-written tutorial and awesome project. I'll have to try this out some time. :)
Low-Poly Paper Sculptures
Oh steampunk; I'd love to see pictures if you have any. :)
Ah thank you for your input!
Small screws indeed! That's why the flat head screwdriver had to be ~sixteenth inch.
Very nicely done, and nice color choices too! I had this drawn out in my sketch book too. :)
Disassembling Watches With ...View Instructable »
Thank you for your kind comment!
I love the design, both in the graphics and the mechanical hinge!
Dragon Piggy Bank
How-to: Wooden badge with safety pin
Clever way of attaching the safety pin. :)
Amazingly impressive job!
CNC Made From Garbage
Nice intro line on WWI and WWII, but above all great project. :)
Using MIT App Inventor to Control Arduino - the Basics
Definitely; the person who assisted me held lessons on this for elementary school students and older. Perservere and you shall succeed. :)
DIY Muscle Sensor / EMG Circuit for a Microcontroller
Very thoroughly written; there's lots to be learned here, so thanks for sharing your knowledge!

Check your FB; sent a message.
3d Print your Voice!
Great job! I especially like your creatively shaped mallet.
Light-Up PCB Necklace
Light-Up Name Tag
Amazing job! You definitely got my votes. ;)
Adorable design, and a nicely written tutorial. Great job!
Steel Rose Sculpture
Beautiful job! These would make lovely Valentines' Day gifts...
Amazing project, and great write up too! I especially like that you included a "Things I Learned" section.
3D Printed Wireless Lantern
Raspberry Pi: Launch Python script on startup
Thank you for the kind comment! Looking for sea glass is great for stress relief. :)
Amazing job! Nice work with the inverse kinematics.
Interactive Geodesic LED Dome
<3 I'm honored
Thank you for your kind comment!
The paper was from a Japanese craft store, but here's a link to the exact same paper on amazon. Enjoy!
"Measure six times, cut once" indeed -- great job planning and designing everything!
Great job with the glow-in-the-dark touch! Plus the teeth-like border is a great touch.
Blooms: Phi-Based Strobe Animated Sculptures
Nice job! What program did you use to generate your model and explode for laser cutting?
Nice job. I like the idea of your holder layers rather than using glue between the layers or fasteners.
Props to you for building your own CNC router and for creating the Star Wars themed project. :) I've been wanting to create something similar, so thanks for sharing!
Program an ATtiny with Arduino
Awesome job! Looking forward to an aluminum version when you get the time/materials. :)
Awesome job! Didn't know micarta existed, so thank you for sharing. The crayon and torching was a great touch.
I'm glad you enjoyed this project. :)I'd love to make such a clock, and it's definitely in my sketchbooks for later. Until then, there's a few commercial options like this, if you're interested -- try this link for a mechanical clock kit, or this link for more inspiration.
Nice job -- I'm glad you enjoyed the project! The simple frame design definitely leaves room for improvement due to the wiggling, as you mentioned. They do work fine after some breaking in. In gear train 0 (middle one of your first picture), the gears are all completely constrained, plus symmetrically oriented, so that one spins the best -- might want to keep that in mind for any gear trains you design. The wood-wood friction could definitely be fixed with washers. Nylon ones work really well, though metal ones should be fine too. To handle the nuts problem, I used superglue to keep them fixed relative to the bolts (make sure you don't over-tighten the nuts before the glue dries, though). Alternatively, you could try lock nuts. Hope this helps, and I'd love to see pictures of any that y...see more »Nice job -- I'm glad you enjoyed the project!

Interesting design! How comfortable is the top, in terms of weight distribution on the grid-like finish? Increasing the number of pieces slotted together would help with that, though it'd also lead to more parts to cut.
Intro to Stepper Motors
Tools and Materials for Arduino
Welcome to Arduino
Adorable! Love the yarn that you chose.
That wood looks great, and the box really works with the grain pattern. Nice choice. :)
I like the nestling effect. :)
Looks great. :)
Great job explaining the process! Nice build and design, overall.
Interesting build! The picture of your parts was really nicely arranged :) If you could share some addition pictures of sample projects that you've cut using the Z-axis, that'd be great!

<3 Glad you enjoyed them!
<3 I wonder whose handiwork that is? ;)
Thanks! I enjoyed playing around with the staining patterns. :)
Oh, thanks for sharing!
Thank you for your kind words! Solidworks is completely unnecessary for this project; any graphics software will suffice (Inkscape is free and perfect for this). Online gear generators can be used to create the gears, and cutting can be done via ponoko.com (my rough guess-timate is $50 tops, unless anyone else has ponoko experience?). So in essence, this is a roughly $50 project for just the laser cutting, as design software could be completely free assuming computer and internet access. Hope this helps! I definitely understand that cost is sometimes a deterrent, but I try my best not to let it get the better of me: do favors for a friend in exchange for software access, work at a local makerspace in exchange for lasering time, I've done it all. ;)
Thank you. :)
