Laser-Cut Mozilla Fennec Logo

I've been wanting to make something with the Fennec logo for a while, so after getting some experience with the NYC Resistor laser cutter for another project, I decided to try my hand at making a laser-cut Fennec. This one took about four minutes of Epilog laser time, most of it spent in the etching of the details. I imported the logo from a PDF file into Corel Draw, edited the internal vectors so there were no vectors that would cause cutting, then made a new outline around everything that I marked as a cut line. The material is opaque blue acrylic, but for a final run of these, I'll use a very nice transparent blue that we've got in our stockroom.
