Full size Santa Sleigh

Found a side view pic of a sleigh ornament I liked in google search, screen shot and turned the image into an svg in Adobe Capture. Took the svg and worked up sizing and pockets and created another file with the inverted image in Inkscape. Moved over to Makercam to make the code. When cutting the lower left and right corners I applied pressure (timely process :tired_face: )
First time using barrel nuts and bolts (made a jig that worked great) cinched it up tight! For the cross section pieces I used my table saw to save time.

that turned out really nice. If I did set designs for plays/musicals I think maslow would come in handy. Maslow saves a lot of time and much more accurate then doing by hand.

Thanks @madgrizzle !!! Just know, if you’re writing, I’m reading!! Much respect.
This project was definitely my most time consuming, all around. It made me realize again how tough it is to cut those bottom corners :tired_face:
From what Ive read from @dlang it is time to try a 12’ top beam and raise it 1’, lengthen chains to 12.5’(figure out weighted chain takeup, again,) go to 10° tilt, and get sled weight closer to 30lbs, also have aliexpress 208mm cbeam ordered to go at the z- axis
For my current sled I have gone back to @pillageTHENburn ‘s 45° kit, nothing has been more consistent for me. Just never could get the wavy lines figured out from the ring. Also, added .125” uhmwpe to the bottom of the sled (slick!!)
Oh, I digress… fun and lengthy project. Just made me read and think of improvements for my ever evolving Maslow!

One more amazing project, your work is impressive.
Make videos out of your projects, maybe that way you can inspire other owners :slight_smile:

Well @Moonster96 , I will have to give it a go. Probably wont be the quality of Frank Howarth (Frank Makes Youtube channel,) but I’ll give it a shot :grin:

I have an 8 year old boy who is dead set on starting his own Youtube/Twitch for Fortnite :rofl: We might both learn something!!

Your finished product is amazing. I would love to attempt this on my CNC router, however, my router software can’t use your file format type. Does anyone have this in dxf?

Thanks,
