Had an order for 30+  backers that a brass plate would affix to.  I never made 30 of anything before so it was a learning experience.IMG_2483.JPG.a281deb5c91f98e7304a08b17e9747ca.JPG

 

This is what they had to look like.  Of course, that's not a shape included with Aspire so a quick email entitled "Help" was sent to MEBCWD.

Once the file was made (rather easily and quickly) I cut a 4' - 1 x 12 poplar glued up board from Menards in half, put the two pieces together,  let the program copy and line up the rows and columns with it's array copy feature.  Saved the file and hit go.

Repeated the process 3 times and we had 36 identical plaques.  Could have done it in two cuts of 18 each but was unsure of the layout so I chose to do it in 3 cuts.

Cut the tabs and popped them out.  Ready to sand and finish.
