milling a mold for meshy

input - November 22nd, 2007 - Marloes de Valk - No Comments

Today we started making part 1 of the mold, to cast a case for the Meshy objects. We are using a CNC (Computer Numerical Control) milling machine (BZT pf 1000 c) at the Waag Society to mill out the shape. The machine is amazing, I can’t stop watching it. The material used to mill out the shape is OBO chemical wood, a very dense material that provides durable and high definition molds. The software that controls the machine is Deskproto, a 3D CAM software for rapid prototyping.
