I learned to take the dimensions of other materials into account more carefully and that laser cutters can be really fickle at times. I also learned about many nuances in operating the laser cutter (between moving the head with the buttons vs. the computer, homing coordinates, uniting lines, avoiding too much LaserCut sass, etc.). I'm glad that I started fairly early so that I had some time to test physical products rather than to just keep modeling and hope that everything would work out. However, I do think I could've avoided the middle step with detailing--including that took quite some time to trace and also caused a lot of lag in my files; if I had realized earlier that thickness could be an issue, I would have been more conscious of how I was layering elements. Overall, I was really happy with the final product, so I think most of the process went well.
