Build process:

There is now a fork in the build process,
for the majority brass parts,
and the 3D printed parts.

Firstly...


Brass Etching:

Vinyl mask.

Once the 2D design was finalized,
it was exported to small desktop vinyl cutter Silhoutte portrait 2

(This has been extensively spoken about in the Thread: Paper cutting machines.)

The vinyl cutter essentially plots the design,
but instead of ink, uses a blade to slice through an adhesive backed vinyl sheet,
that will act as a kind of mask (similar to masking tape).
