Surface Milling

The first attempt at a CNC milled surface using a 3-axis shopbot CNC. The surface was created in Rhino by lofting manually created curves. Toolpaths run along the x and y-axis. Drawn to some of the apparent “lines” that show in the final surface, the next approach is going to be milling a surface that uses custom toolpaths as a way to accentuate the movement of the bit along the surface.
