Introduction: Ludo

Hello guys. Today we will make the most popular game these days. Ludo :)

We will make the design using Inkscape then we will cut it using a laser cutter machine.

Note: this project was made in FABLAB Dhahran by Jafar Alobaid.

Step 1: Requirements

For this project we will need:

  • 3mm Acrylic ( Gray-Red-Green-Blue-Yellow-White).
  • Double sided tape. (Or any kind of glue you prefer ).
  • Snap-off Cutter Knife
  • A laser cutter machine.

Step 2: Design

There are many designs on the internet for this game board, I chose to go with this one because it just looks so nice.

And here's the steps I made:

  1. Import the image to inkscape and use it as a reference for the actual design.
  2. for the green,red,yellow, and blue circles, I just designed one and copied it three times around the board.
  3. I repeated the same technique with the rest of the design's elements.
  4. Don't forget to engrave direction arrows.
  5. To finish the look of the game I cut couple of white circles and inserted them just like in the picture.
  • Attached with this step the original design I made.

Step 3: Final Product

Once you finish cutting all the parts you can start gluing them to the base.

  1. Put the double sided tape on the base till you completely cover it.
  2. Peel off the tape and insert the first layer that will hold the rest of the elements.
  3. You can also try different method or different type of glue.

And that's it. make sure to trim all the extra tape from the edges.
