Process for Laser Project

Custom Designed Tank merged with downloaded dolphin and hat
The treads were separated and re-oriented for maximum strength, the turret was separated in order to accommodate the design feature which allows it to rotate freely while still being locked into the body of the tank. The pieces on the left are for the facade, but were not captured by slicer and had to be redrawn by hand in Corel
The turret mechanism part 1: the first three layers pictured above are placed into a slightly larger hole at the top of the tank body.
The turret mechanism part 2: the ring on top is placed after the first three layers of the turret, preventing the turret from being lifted out afterwards
The final Slicer product, note that the facade items were not processed
Finished product demonstrating the rotational capabilities of the turret
The improvements made by the facade items are clearly seen from the front, compared to how the bare Slicer file looked

Close-up of the treads, demonstrating the structural and aesthetic advantage of slicing them vertically. Note that the turret is facing forward in this photo.
