Foldable Dymaxion map

Fuller map

I laser cut a foldable cardboard version of Dymaxion map, inspired by Noniq's wooden icosahedron map with really neat magnets. Mine is taped on the inside and the edges are somewhat disjoint, so I think a better approach would be to do a double-sided cut -- etch the pattern on the outside, then flip the piece over and ablate a large enough region to make the mountain-folds work.

Power settings to score the cardboard without going all the way through with my epilog command line tool were:

 epilog \
   --vector-power 20,100,100 \
   --vector-speed 100,33,20 \
   --raster-power 80 \
   --raster-speed 100  \
   -f 50 \
