This project is a light table Samaa Elimam, Rachel Robinson, and myself made out of one sheet of plywood . Its was designed using Digital Project Grasshopper and Rhino. Parameters where given to the distance between the curves and distance of the curves from the surface of the table. The sheet of plywood was milled on a CNC machine. The milling process took about 30 minutes. The cuts fluctuate in depth from about 1/16 to 1/32 of an inch. This fluctuation gives the table a nice gradient of tonality as the line moves across the surface.
Many studies where done to see how wide an area could be milled away while keeping structural integrity. Thinkness of the line was not used in the he parameters of this prototype but how ever would be used in further variations. Consideration and prototyping of different types of wood, thickness of lines, and different types of light will be investigated as the project is further developed.
