We have a CNC now? Great, I have a few ideas.

In brief, I made a huge plywood waffle. Not for eating.

The college of architecture has acquired a new cnc milling machine. Now our 3D and 2D work from Rhinocerous and other modeling programs can be translated and cut from a variety of materials at incredible precision. How does 1/1000 of an inch sound to you? It really works.

I designed a torsion box to be easily assembled from 1/2″ and 3/4″ plywood. The work would otherwise be very tedious and difficult to achieve the precision necessary. This box will be used as a staging area for the modular formwork designed specifically for the chair, as well as a long lasting attribute to my collection of tools to be used for future projects.
