CNC milling class


Equipment | software

3d builder, Photoshop – model preparing

artCAM, mach3 – software for CNC

Cnc machine – printing


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

To create input/output device based on Arduino. 


To complete the task, I used the base schema and code from the site This is easy enough if you follow the steps of the link. First, I assembled the schema manually from the components, then copied the code and uploaded it into the board. If everything is assembled correctly and there are no errors, everything will work. Now that my code is working, I can program the crab as I need it. Important to disconnect arduino and your laptop during you remove whatever on the broad)))
