Let's dive into the step-by-step process of making your own bow tie together!

Materials Needed for the Bow Tie Project:

In today's article, we will show you how to create a bow tie project using both 3D printing technology and perforated copper clad board. By following the step-by-step instructions, you can easily complete the project.

Step 1: Download and Cut the Design

First, download the required DXF file for the project. This file will be used to cut the plexiglass. Cut the plexiglass using a laser cutter or CNC machine.

Download the project files.

 

Step 2: Cutting the Perforated Copper Clad Board

Using the same DXF file, cut the perforated copper clad board to the same dimensions. This cutting process will form the base structure to place the electrical components.

Step 3: 3D Printing

Produce some parts of the project using a 3D printer. Send the STL file to the 3D printer and start the printing process. These parts may include various components used in assembling the project.
