In its dark, hidden underground lair the feisty dragon slowly emerges from a series of uniquely shaped, CNC routed, intersecting plywood shells, all bent onto one single mold. Isn’t she beautiful – isn’t she grand?! Thanks so much to the spectacular team of students, collaborators, supporting institutes and sponsors for making this week possible! You area amazing! :-)
After intense nights of scripting the CNC machines are finally droning loudly as the first components are being shaped in a perfectly smooth cycle of cutting-heating-forming-checking-slotting-etc. Soon the first assembled layers will start to emerge!
