Hey,

I am making the Dominator from the Psycho Pass anime series.







I decided to Lasercut these parts from 3mm Acrylic. To get the Design right, I worked out a concept by making a 3D Model:







Then I started of with Vector design in Adobe Illustrator:






I want to have the Vector File finished by sunday and then send it to a Lasercutting service.

So I printed out the Lasercutting Vector Plan to check it



Then I arranged the parts, so I can cut them and printed it out again:




I decided to make a Testbuild.
I had no glue stick so I transfered it to cardboard with a gluegun.




The size is right (33cm long)









Found the first mistake, it´s too thin. So I added 2 more Layers




I found 3 mistakes in total and here ist the 4th one:

Sooooo... The File is finally ready to go!

When it comes to Lasercutting, placement is KEY!






One costs 145€ (= 157$) and the other just 97€ (=105$)
Everything is the same, just the placement is different!

That is a big box. Those look pretty good :)
Its a big P3 sheet.

It was so exciting to unboxing this. This is the first time I work with Lasercut parts
and its AMAZING seeing something that you worked on HOURS over hours in Illustrator
as a real object. And everything turned out exactly like I imagined, except I made a little mistake:



Actually it needs to be the way around. The left one should have that big cut out and the right one should have the the small holes.

For perfect allignment, I included little holes in my designs wich are about 1,1mm and I found 1,2mm nails, wich give it a thight fitting when glueing them together!



I bought a few clamps for this project (And a new heat gun in general, because mine broke)



Aaaaand... I also ordered Mold&Cast supplies.
Im very excited for this, because this is the first time, I get in touch with molding&casting

Sorry for not posting that long....


however here is the progress so far :)



To glue the parts, its important to sand the smooth acrylic





I used holes in my design to get PERFECT allignment with simple nails :D





I also bought allot of clamps ;)





The result so far, it´s still not all glued together





Added some curves with Apoxie Sculpt






The white parts are 3D Printed





Making Mold boxes






Pouring in some silicone






And there I have my Molds :D :D :D
