The Cross :)

The brief was to make an ornate cross, 90mm high by 65mm wide with scrolly work in it..

I drew the base with Rhino to get us as far as a weight estimate then filled it in with tsplines for the curly wurly stuff :)

The Tsplines base geometry


A close up of the geometry layout


and the render.


Deskproto(64bit) made childs play of the 116mb mesh file...


then off to the mill.. roughing.. big ol block of wax :)


and after the rough out on three sides the final pass with a fine cutter


and finally the first cut is done, the two short arms..





here is a quick clip to keep you interested untill the next post :)

Hey all, VERY long time no see.. just slapped a 5th axis onto my mill so I think you might see me around somewhat for a bit.. softlimits are suddenly a very interesting topic to me!

Hi Chris,

Nice to see you'r back here again.
We have missed seeing the pictures of all your wonderful creations, now it looks like some great stuff will be produced with that new axis.  ;)
