Stained glass frame

Recently I was asked to make a frame for a new stained glass window project with Bryn Athyn College. The Stained Glass Class created the windows for a local rec / after school center. My job was to recreate the existing frame. It all turned out rather well. Michael frame-1.jpg frame-2.jpg frame-3.jpg

Re: X axis no longer aligned

Robyn, It sounds like a machine problem. It could have been caused by too aggressive of toolpath strategy, for example, too fast for the speed, too deep for the cutting, etc. This would cause you machine to loos steps, or better said, it's place in the universe. Or, it could be that the motors that ...

Here's a picture of the vectors.

Re: Parametric designs

Highpockets,
I figured out how to cut each slice....that way you could create very large designs.

Mighty hard to do that from a single block of material.

Parametric designs

Parametric designs have been around for some time but I still become hypnotized when looking at them.
