Is it possible to make the tabs full depth of the material ?
Carve one side, then flip material over and carve the other side, full 3d , obviously some limitations, would need to symmetrical about mid plane.
Second cut would remove tabs from first cut, need to full depth tabs.
Using Easel in it’s current state. No.
Using other Software, Yep. Winston Moy made and Elder Wand using Fusion360 using a similar Technique. But no Easel Doesn’t allow modification of the Tabs in 3d workspace currently.
Bugger, another huge learning curve, 3d model in Onshape. Thanks for the link, interesting.
