Milling Project

When we got the assignment for the milling project, I knew that I wanted to make multiples of my piece. I originally was just going to pay for the material and mill more than one of my pieces, but then quickly decided that I would make a mold. Making a mold allows you to use the computer as a sculpting tool. I never looked at computer modeling before in that aspect, so I definitely wanted to try it out. I modeled my form in Maya, then imported it into Rhino where I boolean differenced my form out of two identical rectangle blocks. I also inserted little pegs to assure that when I casted my form, it would come out the same every time.
