A Paper Christmas Star

Just in time for the season, I designed and made a nice decorative christmas star from paper, using my laser cutter.

First, as always, I drew the design in CAD. This time, Fusion 360.

The star consists of two dodecahedrons, one with spikes and one with holes.

Then, I laser cut the design. Each body needed 3 DIN-A4 pages of paper.

Cutting the 2D design

After everything was cut, I assembled the star using some quality glue. This was tricky at times, because I kind of messed up the location of the glue tabs. But oh well, as long as I only have to cut some off.

The end result is definitly worth it!
