You Will Need
Machine used
  • Speedy 360 flexx
  • 100W, 1.5" lens
  • Vacuum table with acrylic cutting grid

You can create this sample using any machine from the Speedy Series.

  • To keep the kerf as small as possible, we decided to use the 1.5" lens instead of the 2" lens
  • Seeing as material thicknesses can vary, we recommend measuring the material and adapting the recess where necessary

Step 3: Assembly

When it's time to assemble your globe, take the ring that contains four outer notches and insert it into the ring with two notches. Then, place the ball into the ring with the two long connections. Once you've done that, it's time to place one of the smaller rings onto the outer rings. Finally, insert the assembled globe into the holder and fixate it to the opposite side with the second ring. Insert the globe into the stand, and it's ready to be displayed!
