Subtraction – Week #9 Project on 4 Axis mill

To get a good result in the 4 axis mill, I thought to try a round shape – something that is pretty difficult to do by hand, not mentioning details and refining. Because pretty much all my project with this machine turned well only when I used the rounded bit 1/4″, I decided to create a real moon model.IMG_6642 IMG_6643 IMG_6644 IMG_6645

At this point the machine stopped and reset the project, probably I had not an even piece, and it thought to have much lower piece that it has. I started a new piece and tried to be more accurate:

Finally, because my first work delayed my time on the machine, I had to stop it. So I ended up with half moon. It looked like the machine is going int he right way, and that if I had more time I could sand the tabs and make it a full sphere.
