The Sea Turtle

Turtles are reptiles of the order Chelonii or Testudines characterised by a special bony or
cartilagineous shell developed from their ribs that acts as a shield. "Turtle" may either
refer to the order as a whole, or to particular Turtle which make up a form taxon that is
not monophyletic. Like other reptiles, Turtles are extotherms - their internal temperature
varies according to the ambient environment, commonly called cold-blooded. However,
Leatherback Sea Turtles have noticeably higher body temperatures than surrounding water
because of their high metabolic rate. Like other Amniotes they breathe air and do not lay
eggs underwater, although many species live in or around water. The largest Turtles are
aquatic. Most Turtles that spend most of their lives on land have their eyes looking down
at objects in front of them. Some aquatic Turtles, such as snapping turtles and soft-shelled
Turtles, have eyes closer to the top of the head. These species of Turtles can hide from
predators in shallow water, where they lie entirely submerged except for their eyes and
nostrils. Sea Turtles possess glands near their eyes that produce salty tears that rid their
body of excess salt taken in from the water they drink. Turtles are thought to have exceptional
night vision due to the unusually large number of rod cells in their retinas. Although many
Turtles spend large amounts of their lives underwater, all Turtles and Tortoises breathe air,
and most surface at regular intervals to refill their lungs. They can also spend much of their
lives on dry land. They lay their eggs on sandy beaches and can take many years to reach
breeding age, and in many cases breed every few years rather than annually.

These Plasma patterns are not simple copies of our Router patterns they have been redrawn to create new scales and slots specially for Plasma.

If you purchase our Router patterns you will NOT get the same results if you just scale them up or down in size due to slot sizes being at a different scale factor for Metal working.

Includes the following Sheet Steel Gauge slot size patterns in the scales from small to Giant size.

DXF File Format

10,12,14 and 16 gauge small size Model
10,12,14, and 16 gauge Medium Size Model

All our plasma patterns  come in three scale sizes and will be in the industry standard DXF file format. This is not slot sizes for thickness of material so don't be confused. The slot sizes will start at 12 gauge imperial sheet steel size of .1046 and will go up and down from there. The same will apply as metric equivilants.

The first and smallest model size will be based on our 1/8th inch CNC router and laser patterns. Typically these patterns have parts no larger than 8.5 X 11 inches or 214 mm X 280mm at .1250 inches and the finished model is usually around 12 to 14 inches in length and height. The slots will have scales of 10,12, 14 and 16 Gauge as well as their metric sheet steel equivilants and the smallest size model will come from the 16 gauge and get larger as you go down the gauge scale.

The second size will be based on our .25 or 1/4 inch router/C02 laser patterns. These are typically twice the size of the .1250 patterns so you can double the size from 12 to 14 inch models to 24 X 28 or there abouts BUT this is where plasma is different than wood in that we keep our slot sizes the same as in the small scale models again being 10,12, 14 and 16 gauge and their metric equivilents.

The third size again follows the same formula as the first and second sizes but in this case is based on our .5 or half inch patterns and still uses the thinner gauge slots for sheet steel. When using this set of files be prepared to create giant Dinosaurs and creatures of all kinds. Perhaps even a Monster size Spitfire Aircraft or American Bison.
