Designed and machined two projects for a Stanford computer-aided machining class. Projects were modeled in SolidWorks, coded in GibbsCAM, and milled on a 3-axis CNC milling machine.
My goal was to evoke the look of a toadstool mushroom in a form that felt pleasant to hold. It’s made of two asymmetric pieces that screw together. The final version was milled in aluminum.
The cheeky form is something like a fire ball with a retro hairdo. His mouth opens twist-off caps and the curl on the top works for pop-offs. Milled one in 303 stainless steel and another in aluminum.
