2024-02-24 (Sa) ChonkyLockPick 3D model

I bought a plastic padlock from a toy store that was as large as my hands, and I thought it would be cute to make some comically large lock picks to go with it. I wanted to cut them from acrylic with my laser, but it could not cut thick plastic. I wanted to test plastic cutting on my CNC, which was powerful enough to go through plastic sheets, but I worried it would shatter or fracture.

The part was designed to look like a typical pick, but I made the handle hollow to hang it from a lanyard. The circle at the end was part of a different project. I estimated the dimensions, but it seems proportional to commercially available units. From a practical standpoint, the tip should not be round, but that is easier to cut, and this is for laughs, not a legitimate tool.
