Making an intricate laser cut bowl from a 3D model

See the process from the initial 3D model to laser cutting the parts.

Instructables recently posted a step-by-step explanation of how they produced the digital files for their new Wooden Hand Bowl Kit. The explanation is not quite detailed enough to be a tutorial, but it does provide an excellent overview of how to use a combination of programs — including Poser, Blender, and Autodesk 123D Make — to make interlocking laser-cut parts based on a complex 3D model.

Autodesk 123D is powered by Ponoko Personal Factory and is the software that slices the 3D models into pieces for the laser-cutter.
