Will Penny - Laser Engraving Tests

The final engraving with craft balsa wood.

The six individual spheres were then modified in Illustrator for engraving.

Another set of engraving tests were created by manipulating a sphere in Maya, which was rendered out as a vector with only the frontal lines showing.

Detail of the raster engraving.

The engrave/cut was tested with both plywood and MDF, although the green engrave lines were somehow lost. The cause of this error has yet to be determined.

The design was began with a vector rendering of my FDM model converted into wireframe. Raster engraving and interior cuts designed in Adobe Illustrator were added to test multiple functions of the laser cutting machines.
