May 2021 Leash Holder 4" X 5.75"

April 2021 A hybrid cup holder cover designed by request for a Perfusionist's Toyota
utilizing both laser cut and 3D printed components.

After 3+ years of use can't quite bring myself to cut an exhaust vent hole
in the room's exterior wall and am still using this method to vent.

ebay Ammeter (3d printed housing)
Mounted on the right side expansion cover, only one small grommet hole required.
In addition was able to remove and hole punch it away from the machine
reducing any risk of metal shavings in the electronics.

Primitive cooling set-up located over the a/c floor register.
Submerged freezer packs utilized while cutting.
A water temp probe used for monitoring.
Pretty high tech huh..hey it works.

ORION 50W  300 X 500 laser thangy machiney...

Using the included RDWORKS V8 and LaserDraw plug-in.
Somewhat surprisingly this software interfaced with outdated Corel X3 just fine.
Of course the compromise is both programs are running on obsolete versions of Windows in this case.

Added this honeycomb bed plate shown here.
