Could this bike rack be cut with Maslow?

Do you think this design could be cut with Maslow? It’s taking the design right to the edges of a 4x8’ sheet of plywood: http://www.thetylergibson.com/building-a-better-portable-bike-rack/

Can you download the design and post a picture of it. This points to a list of things some in Cement. No the Maslow can’t do Cement as documented for a standard build. I’m saying there are several designs here and we can’t read your mind. Throw us a bone - please.

Thank you

The round cut-outs for the bike tires will not have an issue being 1mm off. The slots to fit-in/slide pieces together might have issues with that (outer edges/corners). A workaround is to cut in scrap material in the corners, measure how much +/- it’s off and adjust in the CAD.
How good is the machine calibrated? 10ft or 12ft motor distance?

Kind regards, Gero

Good point! I posted the article but one has to scrounge around for the actual design files. They can be found here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2669613

Thank you! - I like that one. I would use paper or cardboard until the cut is dialed in, before cutting. Practice with a pen or pencil. Would think it’s achievable. We have people making boats here.

Thank you
