For the Summper playground of Kessel-Lo, we needed some coins with our Logo. Beside thad we lost our Twister board the summer before so we also needed a new one. After long thinking, I found out that Fablab Leuven so I started to see what I had to do.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Inkscape Design
Before you can go to fablab to cut your design, you have to make it. This you can do with Inkscape, a very nice and FREE program to make you designs. Its very easy:
- You upload your picture and gives it the color black (not blue like in the picture!!) This is what you will mark into the wood or the other material.
- All what you want to cut, do you have to give the red color (R=255).
Then, all you have to do is save you desing and take it to Fablab!
Step 2: The LASER CUTTER
Two days after I made my design, I went to fablab. I was helped very fast and good by one of there employees. The cutter needed some time but after 2 hours I was finished and had dome cool coins and a Twister board!
Step 3: Painting
My coins were already finisched but my Twister board was still missing some color. But with a little paint was that problem solved!
