Swiss buffers: the design

Without any blueprint or measures, but only a collection of pictures, I used Inkscape to do some guesstimations of shapes and dimensions: I imported the digital photos and overlayed on the hand created rectangles and ellipses, adjusting my shapes until they met the original picture. I then extracted the dimensions of the shape objects and used them to design the buffer with FreeCAD. With the supervision my modeling partner expert’s eye, I did the final tuning.

Now it’s time to add the supports for the 3D print and replicate them in a matrix, ready to be printed.
