Thickness and kerf are used to make shapes that should exactly interlock, and epsilon determines how much I intentionally undersize certain components in order to compress the cardboard. During our group laser characterization, we found the cardboard to be 0.17", the kerf to be about 0.1", and that it was beneficial to compress the cardboard in joinery by another 0.1". The other parameters control geometry. ![](/img/02_params.jpg#c) +Cutting proceeded smoothly.
