A friend of mine is moving out of state and needed to downsize the amount of stuff she had to move. Among the assets in question was a CNC router…which she sold to me!

Instead of manually cutting the cross-sections, I now can actually send the true cross-sections to the CNC machine and “print” out slices that I would have sanded into shape by hand previously.

Here’s the result of the first test run!

I realized that I had saved everything with non-linear colorspace, and when you’re doing stuff with heightmaps, non-linear colorspace screws up your curves and so on! Based on what I learned from this test, I’m now preparing to do a test with slightly adjusted positioning for the cross-sections…and proper linear color space data!
