‘Packing’ on a Penrose tile #2

Once the circular cylinders have been placed on the 3 faces of the Penrose tile, the command in Rhino ‘Boolean Difference’ will cut into the top of the surface, leaving circular cut outs of where the cylinders laid. The material I selected for this to be produced in was Jelutong timber.

After collecting the finished piece, since the tile is cut into a cube block of wood, the excess wood around the ‘kite’ shape had to be sawn off. Before i did this i sanded the top of the surface as well as the inside of the holes to give the wood a smoother surface.

I then placed a ‘little man’, scaled at 1:50 on top of the tile to give it a greater sense of scale.
