03_Week work:
My goals for this week were two: On the one hand to learn the techniques of 3D modeling and design to perform the press-fit and kerft and on the other hand learn how to use the different laser cutting machines we have in the Fab Lab Veritas RedSail 1200x900 mm, CamFive 900x600. Each of them uses different software and has different operating modes.

Sofware:
