Glass Plate Game Markers

Copyright © 2014 Bart Massey

This package generates three files of printable SVG useful for feeding to a laser cutter to make wooden markers for the Glass Plate Game.

The SVG generator is written in Python 3. The easiest way to get the files is to just run "make" on the Makefile. This will produce PDF by default. If you just want SVG or do not have "cairosvg", which is used to generate the PDF from the SVG, say "make svg".

The markers with the numbers can be cut from the front: set the laser cutter so that the black is a gentle raster emboss and the yellow is a full vector cut. For our cutter, the relevant parameters are:

  • Vector Current 100
  • Raster Power 70 Speed 80
  • Vector Power 100 Speed 75

The other two files comprise front and back of the other markers. As with the numbers, use raster with the black and vector with the yellow. The easiest way is probably to tape down the stock and cut the front first, which will free up a panel that you can flip over and drop back into the hole to cut the back.

There are two other versions of this generator in the repo that were written in Haskell, but maintaining generators in parallel seemed like a lot of pointless work. Dig them out if you like.
