Laser cutting parts

The Solidworks drawings for laser cut parts are due at noon on Monday, November 11. The drawing is to be submitted via a D2L dropbox.

Contrary to instructions in an earlier version of the Homework assignment, you do not need to add your initials or other identifying marks to the Raster or Engrave layers of the drawing.

Please look at this description of common failure modes for laser cut parts.
