All I can say at the moment is that there will be corridor partitions for Easybuild and Lima Mk1 coaches and some unique scenic texture sheets, some test pieces can be seen below. Pallets look like a good idea ( I could do any size) once some suitable material for the cross pieces has been sourced. I can do glazing for anything given accurate dimensions :) A website will appear in due course, but im still in 'new product development phase' (management talk for mucking about :)) )
Oh and some desk tidy type things, There are lots of other things im working on but there are just not enough hours in a day

Nice bit of wood distressing there Guv, looks very 'damp'.
There never have, and never will be enough hours in the day - its a sod isn't it :(

Interested in the glazing - what would be required? If I drew it up in a CAD package would I need any allowance for cutting or no allowance required or does the cutter software sort that out?

Also thinking too much about laser cutting - have you tried cutting metal, i.e. steel, nickel silver or copper? I'm seriously thinking about getting a few frames and body work bits sorted.

C'mon Cynric - pull yer finger out, mate:));)
There is a sample piece of glazing on its way with the wagon :)
I cant cut metal with this kit :( the best results I have seen are from cnc routers.
Adrian, yes there is a kerf usually about .1mm. if it needs really tight tolerances then I do a test piece and adjust accordingly.

I will look forward to the list as & when :thumbs:

Is that just because of the laser power or another reason?
Power is one reason, also metal splatter, and some of the required kit isnt domestically friendly :))

Keeping in mind Neils comment about the laser being too perfect, and my dislike of having to pick bricks with a scalpel, im working on a different approach to cutting and drawing, this is a 7mm sample with a certain amount of programmed randomness :))

Is that quote an invitation for another bout of Everett jokes?
Will we get to the bottom of the Rhubarb story?

Or do you have a cunning plan for winning the lottery?
It could be :) its a question of getting a machine to reproduce an organic entity. the downside to this is the time it takes to cut a side and the amount of work and general geekness (therefore cost) involved in producing the artwork. This shot gives a better idea of the extra texture of the piece.

The most recent sample does have a realistic air to the appearance and I expect that you shall have great success with green mould as seems to be growing on the sample in post #228.

Your experimentation looks like you can replicate the differences between machine pressed and hand pressed/cut bricks.... what next? the "smile" on the side of an old-fashioned hand thrown brick?

Now this is getting out of hand..... All the other laser brickworks I've seen have been far too clinical, but you seem to have really mastered this, Cynric. Fabulous effects and probably can't be bettered?
