I had been looking at the Maslow CNC for some time as something to add to my workspace. One area I hope to utilize this is to make Christmas decorations for a light show I put on every year rather than order the parts. Prior to making this purchase, I had cut jigsaw style stage risers for my church by hand. Though I got a lot better at cutting them by the time I finished making the 16 pieces, the first ones that I cut by hand were off in several dimensions which made the stage platforms wobbly.
After cutting the final sled, a hose adapter for my shop vac and a test cross - I took out my original designs for the risers and imported them into illustrator to get a vector outline and add some extra holes. The process was relatively straightforward and after looking on these forums, I discovered that exporting from Illustrator required SVG 1.1 to be chosen, as well as 3 decimal places and no other options selected to be able to upload the SVG into MakerCam at the right scale.
Using the Ground Control software allowed me to pick a new place on my board to start the cuts and everything was relatively straightforward. I had to tinker with the z-axis a little as it was sometimes not pushing the router in - but for my actual first project it worked fine.
Here is my completed machine as I cut out the one riser piece.
