2024-04-03 (W) SubdermalWirelessLEDs Plotting new bracer

The last brace was challenging to cut because I had an underpowered rotary tool and some undersized laser-cut templates. This time, I have a CNC machine! I had already bent my coils to fit my forearm, so I virtually flattened it by tracing the circumference on paper and taking measurements there.
Mapping coil circumference

I mapped the ellipse in CAD and traced the tool paths to make a hoop. I considered adding holes where I could fasten the coil, but I wanted to keep the first draft simple. The rectangle on the left will hold the electronics, and the four tabs will help support it on my arm.
