1525 Belt Buckle--Unfinished
I've been trying to make a belt buckle for a while now for my FIRST robotics team (FRC, 1525 if that matters). We have a plasma cutter at our school, so i drew up the buckle in AutoCAD. From there it went into flashcutCNC, and from there the drawing was cut out by the plasma cutter. I had two failed attempts--one was the machine's fault (the torch moved but would not cut... it was strange) and the other was my fault (line underneath a line that i didn't notice, so it cut out that part twice and that resulted in one of the sides being too thin). But here it is now. I plan on lopping off the part for the buckle and the pin and welding them on, but for now, this will do fine. The black sharpie marks will be dremel'd out and leave a little depression where they are to pronounce the numbers better. The only problem is that it cracked where the buckle loop is, so that will have to be welded that back together.
