Making things – puzzle, clock, & sign letters

We’re making things now with the laser cutter. The software toolchain I’ve been using is all free:

Draftsight (exactly like AutoCAD but free, 2D only, fine for laser cutting patterns)->Inkscape (vector graphics editing)->CamBam (CAM software)->CNC G Code Controller (RepRap/Marlin controller).

Some of the things we’ve made: a laser cut wooden puzzle:
