Woof!  That is a seriously hardcore conversion process.  Looks sweet, though.

Just the cutting part. Once everything is cut, its fairly easy. But does take some time. Well worth it :D And thanks.

If only some talented soul could turn these templates into some .stl files for 3d printing.

How did you draw up the templates? I'd love some more detail on the engineering process that went into them.

That must have been one steady hand on the cutting. It looks absolutely seamless, great work!

Yeah... That would be cool actually. Maybe if I get a bit of spare time I will look into it. Just no idea how to yet biggrin.png

Well, basically a lot of measuring, paper prototypes, more measuring, and more paper. Tell you what, if you can give me more details on what exactly you would like to know I can do a proper write up for you?

I have a friend who may well be up to the task, assuming you don't mind?

Well, whenever I've tried anything like this, I can put together a 3d model of what I want in the computer (e.g. SketchUp or similar) but then I can't work out how to 'unfold' the 3d shape to get a 2d template with the correct angles and dimensions for angled plates.

It sounds like you're actually building physical prototypes rather than a virtual model?

Any kind of step-by-step that shows the process leading up to where the great tutorials you've already posted start would be awesome!

Not at all. Would love to see it myself.
