At some day, some time in the past someone emailed us a picture of the techinc hackerspace amsterdam to the Chief Trolling Officer at hack42.
After some very carefull pointing a mouse at the inkscape icon tracing the key with the path tool almost randomly created a nice picture of the key. Some scaling was involved but we all know that a 1 euro coin is 23,25mm in diameter.
Passing this file to visicut after loading the lasercutter with a scap part of PMMA (any other cutable somewhat strong material will do) created a very shiny key outline.
This cutted part won't work of course, this is not a key.
Enter the blank:
Insert this in a key copier at your favorite hackerspace.
