Actual situation

All tools are sitting in one drawer and you will never find the right tool.


We need a solution like this: https://www.google.de/search?q=shadow+board&tbm=isch

The Plan

The plan is to make foam inlays for the drawers with our foam cutter.

Step 1 - Take a photo

Sort the tools and take a photo on the "light tabel":-)

Step 2 - Create a path

Create a path around the tools

Step 3 - Path to DXF

We used Incscape to save the path as a DXF.

Step 4 - Create G-Code

We used the tool dxf2gcode

Step 5 - Cut the foam

The result
