I want to cut it, but I can not read it correctly with Laser Web 4.
Can I output dxf for each layer?

Hi Totsuka!
I'll have to admit that I didn't know that program. I've installed it just now, banged my head a little bit on the wall, and found the solution:
LaserWeb4 importing system seems a little bit wacky.. but it accepts well dxf files in R12 ASCII format. It's an old format, so not all programs export to it, and all my dxf files are in R14.
Still, you have Draftsight, a free CAD program from Dassault Systemes, that exports ok to R12 ASCII and consequently to LaserWeb4.
Hope this helps!

ThaThank you for your reply.
After downloading DraftSight, dxf could be exported and loaded.
I appreciate the solution.

Really nice design, I love it!

I thought about trying to convert it for 3D printing, but I don't think the result would be as nice. You wouldn't get the burn effect on the sides, and I really think outline contrast is needed for this to look good.

Thanks a lot!
I'll have to agree. And it also doesn't take much time to make it like the 3D print.
I'm so a laser-cutter guy :)

To bad this isn't a 3D model.

Oh! don't say that, it's easy to convert a laser-cut file into a 3D printer file :)
(but yeah, I understand, not the same thing xP )

There may be a problem with the design files for this Thing. The edge pieces that go around the landscape layers don't match what's in the instructions. Specifically, in the instructions, the horizontal edge pieces are female on both sides while the vertical edge pieces are male on both sides. In the actual design files, the edge pieces all have one male end and one female end. I'm not sure that's specifically a problem, though, just a difference.

There is. however, a physical issue with the vertical pieces. They won't attach to the landscape pieces because one part of the edge is too large to fit in its corresponding cutout on the landscape piece.

Thanks Daghis! You're right, there's a problem with the design file.
The difference in the edge of the pieces isn't problematic with it's assembly, but the other error is! I'm going to fix it now.
Thanks for pointing it out! I wouldn't have noticed x)

Thank you for the updated files. The replacements worked great!
