I needed a door stop for my bedroom door so I designed a silly one that looks like a banana peel. I hand-drew the banana peel outline in Houdini and ran some procedural modeling operations to prepare it for carving out of machinable wax.
Max and I used partworks3D to create the tool/cut path.
The job was very straight forward on the shopbot.
Juhong and I trimmed our molds so the unused material would be available to others.
There was a small mess on the ground from previous saw users so I cleaned it up.
BTW- this is a vacuum cleaner, it's an amazing machine that keeps you from turning into a spoiled brat.
Mixed up the PMC 121-30(DRY) Smooth-on polyurethane and toasted it for one hour at 150 in the toaster oven.
Here it is.. door stop with style. Next time, would like to use some yellow pigment...
