I’m building a house to be cut with a laser cutter. Is it better to build as a solid box (like with the rectangle tool then extrude a big solid box from it) or should I build my walls all 3mm thick (the ply thickness) with open space in the middle.
How do I build a roof for laser cutting? I know how to do it as a solid extruded thing like how the SU tutorials show and a lot of you-tube videos but I don’t know how that will go when I go to lay all of the pieces out to be cut.
Imagine you have a simple rectangle and you do a plain gable roof on top. Is the way I make the roof somewhat like the tutorials where it is a solid extruded thing or is there a way to say, draw a rectangle on top of a couple triangles at either end of the house that is 3mm thick just like it would be if I was making it in real life from actual craft (not real) materials? Also, if I was building this house from real craft materials, the roof would overhang 5mm or so and the soffite area will angle up towards the top of the wall it sits on but in SU, when I do a roof I get a flat soffite in that overhang area but again, I don’t know how to make that work in terms of making parts for laser cutting. Has anyone able to explain how to do a roof for laser cutting or have you seen anything written up online?
