Digital Fabrication - Laser Cutting Exercise - Simple Topography

IMG_9990.JPG

Having had many varied experiences working with laser cutters in the past, I was interested, for this assignment, in just making a simple design that I have had an interest in messing around with for some time now. I have always thought that 3D topographies out of stacked laser-cut layers had an organic beauty, so I decided to make one of my own. I simply found a royalty-free topography SVG online and deleted all of it but a small section. Then I separated out each piece, cut them, and glued them all on top of each other, using the holes I added to line them up.
