Phone Pocketing

My youngest daughter asked me to engrave her name on my phone, because her sister's name is already on there. I took the oportunity to use the pocketing operation. It was quite easy to use and I'm pleased with the result.
I made her name in Inkscape and opened it in HeeksCNC as a SVG file.
I got the heart shape as a SVG file from Wikipedia ( the page about love ) and imported it into HeeksCNC.
I drew the rectangle after measuring how much space there was on my phone.
I clamped a lump of wood in my machine's vice and machined it flat with a big tool, just using jog moves. I superglued the flexible battery cover from my phone onto the wood to make sure it was flat.
