Mastercam + Rhino: Custom Toolpaths for a Cast Part

In this tutorial I show how to use some of the curve from surface tools in Rhino to generate a series of curves from which I can develop toolpaths - when imported into Mastercam.
Total Length: 12.13

Mastercam + Rhino: Toolpaths for a Cast Part

In this tutorial I demonstrate a basic way of setting up your file in rhino - to bring it in to mastercam - in order to develop toolpaths for cutting the surface. This is a basic way that will allow you to use the standard cutting formats in Mastercam (radial, parallel, contour, etc...)
Total time: 18.29

Rhino: Minimal Surface Aggregation

In this tutorial I cover how to derive a minimal surface model in a semmetrical quarter using the loft function in Rhino - that can then be duplicated, reversed, and rotated to produce a whole surface. Total length: 14min.

Rhino: Manual Surface Aggregation

In this tutorial I show two methods for manually modeling in Rhino an Ngon derived aggregate surface. One using the project to surface function and the other using the implicit history function - both using lofting. Total length 16min.

2D Patterning - Student Work

Click on the image above to load a pdf (11mb) of select student work from the 2D textual and patterning excercises. Sorry - names are not on all of them.

Here is Michael and John's 2 point attractor definition.

Here is Kris's random pattern scaling definition.
