I really appreciate the user interface and intuitiveness of LightBurn. More and more it is the starting point for all design work (whether the final destination is the laser, the cnc spindle, or the 3D printer).
Attached to this post is a project file I created last night with my son to make him a DIY spinner. Our original intent was for this to be cut from ¼" acrylic and double sided engraved (which we did and you will see pictured below).
It is just so nice to have the ease and tools of design in LightBurn and the export capability to bring a project like this into TinkerCAD for generating an STL for 3D printing.
The notes embedded in the LightBurn project file provide info and recommendation on material and bearing size (as well as a link to TinkerCAD where the 3D project can be acquired).

Replacing the attached project file with an updated version that includes the design having the cut out spirals.
