Plywood sculpture file generation

Year: 2020 & 2021

Client: Lost coast woodworking

Project: I helped out Ben Adams from lost coast woodworking with generating files for some sculptures of Sverre Bjertnes. The artist provided a small-scale clay model which got scanned and then smoothened out before positioning alignment holes and cavities for reinforcement. Then I created a few python scripts and used some of my personal automation tools to split the model up into layers and generate the cutting files and assembly guidelines automatically. In total there were 225 layers split into 783 pieces spaced over 11 sheets of plywood. Some of the remaining cut sheets were repurposed into room dividers. I generated the files, all cnc-production and assembling was done by Ben Adams.
