    • Flat pack house or a slice form camper shell for my toyota tacoma.

      I saw this really cool project for the homeless on http://www.shelter20.com/ and it got me to think about flat pack housing. How cool would that be to build your own house. Then I thought how about something smaller like a camper shell for my truck, my only problem is my laser bed is 12" x 24" and really I can only cut 1/4" thick wood. So yeah a slice form camper shell!

                    • Make a 3D object into 2D slices

                      I'm thinking of an app that would take a 3D object and convert it into interlocking 2D slices (like SketchChair, but for all kinds of objects--I'm thinking specifically of those cardboard deer heads you can get from Urban Outfitters and other places). It would take a lot of the guesswork out of making complex forms!

                        • Automated Part Nester

                          Nesting parts for the optimal use of sheet material could be automated by an app that works out the most space saving and cost effective solution. It could even put other peoples orders onto your spare bit of sheet so that everyone is sharing every bit of surface available with least waste/ offcuts possible.

                          • More Depth!

                            New option in designing products: Increased etching depth beyond the 3 current depths. This will increase design options enormously.

                                      • I'd love to make a custom children's play house!

                                        It would be fantastic to make a custom play house for toddlers like the plastic ones they currently sell. Customize by adding the child's name and perhaps some of the things they like too.

                                        • Longboard skateboards

                                          I would love to have the ability to select from several longboard molds (plywood, bamboo/fiberglass/carbon fiber combination) and then upload my own design based on a template for a particular shape.
