How to Design and Laser Cut Legend of the Five Rings Tokens and Honor Dials
In this episode I experiment with micro-surface acrylic to create the complex 5 Ring tokens and honor dials. I design the pieces in Adobe Illustrator and cut them on a laser cutter. Then I fuse the pieces together using chemical solvent and assemble the dials using screw rivets. When I am dissatisfied with the fusing results on the tokens I recreate them in my tried and true engraving and painting method. I show the results of each approach and compare them to the original game components.
