Pepakura Speed Run

Today I am pushing the physical speed limits of the laser cutter to see if it is possible to cut and assemble an entire Spartan chest and back piece in one day. I have an hour reserved on the Epilog at 2:00 and an hour at 5:00.  Hopefully I can get this 20 something page monster done in that amount of time.

If all goes well, I'll be fiberglassing it tonight. The time is 2:14 anddddd GO!

Robits and Pepakura

I finally learned how to cut pepakura pieces with the Epilog laser cutter at TechShop the other day. Assembling complex 3d models takes a 1/10th of the time it previously did. And they said I'd need to learn how to use scissors to pass 1st grade. hah!
