So basically in assignemnt 3 we learnt how to use the cnc router….we were given a file where we had to find a pattern and manupilate its surface by pushing and pulling the points on points on/off….
my patttern is an abstract image of a Swan in water..its a bit hard at first to see but if you get your eyes around it you maybe able to see it…but most importantly i learnt how to use this printer which i thought would come in handy for my next project
These are some screen shots of the differnt tools in the printer
I personally love the second one as it shows the depth of the different lines…it almost seems like the outer curves are gradually disspearing in a very subtle manner and the swan in the middle has a very deep cut to it…also love the pointed areas of the lines in the middle in some areas….
I created this 3d texture by having the swan pattern projected on to a copy of the original template and pushing and pulling its points down so that it gives that nice depth to it….
This is a screen shot of my process in Rhino
completely different to how i imagined the end print out…cant wait to see how it looks on Foam now…
