Step 1: Lets Make the Frame of Card

Lets make the frame with the dimensions of 85x55 mm and 1.7 mm high. Inner frame dimensions its 82x52 mm. This is the size of a credit card and will fit perfect in a wallet.

The inner needs to be 1.5mm wide and 2 mm long. (Remember this are cuts)

The outer needs to be 1.8mm wide and 2 mm long. (Remember this are cuts)

The small legs on the rocket fuselage need to 1.8 mm wide and 2 mm long

Let’s add holding support for parts and frame to make one piece. It is important to make them .50 mm high this will help you break them more easily went removing the parts form frame .

It’s also important to not mesh supports with parts. ( If mesh with parts it becomes on piece and its harder to applied changes)
