CNC Mill Project

William Gross

Using Rhino3D and a 3-axis mill I was able to create a surface that exhibits both flow and proud form. Two large blocks of high-density foam were milled out and then covered with a urethane mold making material called brush-on 40. After the urethane mold dried, plaster and burlap were used to create a mother mold that gives it strength and rigidity. Concrete was the casting material I used to achieve a sense of considerable weight combined with a free flowing shape. The base is laser-cut acrylic that was then stacked and sandblasted to to get a shape that could light up with an RGB LED and also hold up the weight of the sculpture.
