This project consists of 4 tiles that measure 10.5″ x 10.5″ x 1.5″ each and were milled to explore the different tool path potentials of RhinoCAM and the CNC Router. The toolpaths included a horizontal roughing of all pieces and different finishings such as radial machining, spiral machining, between two curves, and parallel finishing at a 45 degree angle. MDF was selected as the material for the tiles.
The tiles were then vacuum-formed in plastic which left an almost metallic-like finish and captured the direction of the toolpaths.
