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:

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)

Im very excited for this, because this is the first time, I get in touch with molding&casting

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
