When cutting small parts, it is easier to cut them into rough parts first.
If the board hangs down and pinches the blade, or if the material is going to break under its own weight, escape from the cutting line and cut off the material.

Just assemble like puzzle. Pay attention to the orientation of Antlers.
There is no need to glue.
If it is too tight, adjust it with a file or sandpaper #80-160.

Another type of glue I''ve got some so I''ve tried.
Excuse me . What do you want to do with DXF files?
This design is open on CC license for Non-commercial use.
Very few people can use NC routers(I think). That is why I did not upload DXF.
If you are thinking about mass production and sales, I''t give you DXF.
If not, please send me a message directly, introducing yourself, what you are trying to do, and your email address.
If I understand that you can personally use an NC router etc., I will gladly give you DXF.
I''m sorry if it''t got photoshop and can''ll get it printed and order some Ply.....
