Gueni’s woodworks

We’re happy to present two new projects made by our user, Gueni.

First is a useful holder for a USB card reader. To manufacture this piece, Gueni used Trijeex ABS wood filament. It not only fits his desk but also looks like a part of the wooden furniture.

The second project is a 2D spatial image CNC milled in plywood and beech. Gueni created two G-codes – one for cutting the shape out of the wood and second for carving the details of a piglet. After wiping them with sandpaper, these funny images can decorate your kitchen or child’s room – with ZMorph multitool 3D printer one could even create an entire animal farm!
