CNC milling


CNC milling class

 


Equipment | software



3d builder, Photoshop – model preparing




artCAM, mach3 – software for CNC


Cnc machine – printing

 



Task




It was necessary to cut out a relief tile by 10 * 10 (as an example – Barcelona’s diverse tiles)


Process of preparation



The topographical relief of the terrain was chosen to turn it into a kind of biomorphic surface, similar to both natural landscape and biomimetic structures.


A raster image with lines was taken, then painted in Photoshop with white-black polygons, where black is the lowers level. Then this colored image was dragged to the 3d builder, where the final form of a relief was prepared.






 

Then this file was exported to stl format and open with artCAM software allowing to set the dimensions of a string, tile surface, etc.

 










 


Then it was open directly with mach3 for the last settings before the milling.





 

The printing took approximately 30 minutes

 








 


The result was good








Then I experienced with similar structures, for example, in order to create a kind of biomorphic window panels.


When the project was completed, I faced with the similar example at the Mars Museum of Modern Art. Probably such table can be the next stage of the module-tile development
