I'm enjoying the boolean tool in Rhino these days and how the removal of an object's matter can indeed redefine the object itself. I started with a simple rectangular solid. Using a couple spheres I booleaned the solid to open the space slightly. Just those simple actions made this object into an interesting and dynamic basis for a lamp.

The piece will be laser cut and assembled in plexiglass. I'm excited to see the laser go to work on my creation. . .

The final product will be a simple, but fun sculptural lamp.

  1. matt,
    i will show you how to extrude the sections so that the file better approximates the finished lamp form. you should include some screen shots of the solid form from which it was derived.
