[wip] Boxie - a laser cut Gameboy Zero box

Post by RedPixel » Thu Sep 28, 2017 3:23 pm

New weekend, new project. Hmm, maybe I should finish a project before starting a third... :lol:

Before going to the laser-cutting course I'll follow in a few weeks, I wanted to polish my Inkscape skills. Here is a sneak peak of something I'd like to laser cut.

Not sure whether to go with wood, acrillic (matte aqua? neon orange?), (black) MDF?



edit: I keep a log on my website: https://pixel.red/project/lasercut-gameboy-zero/
