Custom parts and enclosures

The Peaceful Star of Unity

This part was cut w/ the universal laser cutter. It is the very face of the design. The geometric design represents peace.

Peace Connector

The peace connector brings it all together. This piece connects the laser cut symbol (the Peaceful Star of Unity) to the spiral/coil holder. It was also created using the FormLabs 2 printer and made with SolidWorks software.

Light Piece Holder

This part holds the USB-LED light bulb in place. The piece was created using SolidWorks software and printed using a FormLabs 3D printer.

Aluminum Spiral

This part was created using the DIwire bender. The machine and it's program are meant to bend wire into 2D objects, but I needed just one more dimension in order for this coil/spiral to hold the ornament on the top of the tree.

I went to college to study welding and machining, but with help of a program at my school called the FabLab I took an interest in fabrication machines.
