Saving a Jigsaw Puzzle

Recommended Posts

Posted · Saving a Jigsaw Puzzle

So we received a jigsaw puzzle from my wife's twin sister to work on while self isolating.  She did advise us that she thought there was a piece missing, and sure enough there was.  With that as a challenge, I photographed the missing piece of the puzzle, brought it into SolidWorks and vectorized it using "Sketch Picture", extruded it to 0.080" (2mm) sent it to Cura and in turn sent to my UM3.  My wife then painted it to perfection and "Voila" the lighthouse was restored.

Now I'm just looking for the next project.

Thanks.  The paint and color matching credit goes to my wife.  👌

Black "Sharpie" pen for the dark and some kind of eye shadow make-up for the lighter color, finished off with a clear coat.
