TESTING TESTING

Today I tested two methods for cutting the pieces of my waffle structure, the black and white images show a test cut on the CNC machine… In order to get the correct clearance for the slots, I had to plunge some little holes in the corners of each one (as drill bits don’t cut square internal corners!), but it looks a bit ghastly (I guess it could look nice if I used a smaller drill bit, but that would take much longer)… Also the edges need a lot of cleaning up which is certainly not something I want at this stage as this is the first serious prototype for the curved wall systems and I want to have it assembled and ready to play with as soon as possible!! The laser cut pieces came out much much nicer, but this method also takes quite a long time owing to the material thickness… Patience is a virtue……………………
