Lo-Res 3D Modeling

Lo-Res 3D Modeling
Originally uploaded by ~db~

This year's SIGGRAPH showed many ways of turning computer models into three dimensional objects. Most involved layering microscopic amounts of resin thousands of times, slowly building up the final object over many hours.

This instead was a decidedly lo-fi affair uses a computer guided mill to cut out individual layers of the final object, which will then be assembled.

I'm not sure of what kind of applications it could be used for, but it is a nifty idea.
