We would be doing it ourselves but we are just too busy making patterns to have the time.... and you can even have us make custom patterns for you to grow your market with custom models that your customers request.

CardBoard ...FoamBoard ?
We have had requests from several customers who tell us we should be informing you all that you can, in fact, make our patterns using just an exacto knife and foamboard or cardboard. You can import them into the free inkscape drawing software and print out the parts at any scale you choose using our scale calculator for any thickness of board you are cutting the parts from. So our patterns are open to not only those of you who have CNC tools or laser cutters but now are available to anyone can make a cool 3D puzzle or model from a makeCNC digital project pattern.

Here's what our customers Ron and Janette Ford have to say about the Scale calculator...
"Your Scale Calculator is fantastic.
I was making a sample of the 6mm Boxer and decided that this model was too big for a desktop.
Using your calculator I scaled down to a thickness of 5mm.
After a few attempts at this, using Corel Draw 4, I did a sample cut and it turned out to be exactly 5mm.
This thickness produces a far more suitable size for a desktop pen holder, In my opinion."
New to makeCNC many of our patterns are now being converted over to easily Printable PDF format for Scroll saw users who would like to stick them onto plywood or MDF and cut them out see the Scoll Saw pages on the left Menu.
