Laser cut Sphere
The images depict the process of designing and producing numbered, flat packable, self supporting, acrylic spheres.
Given a diameter size of 120mm, a cardboard model was used to identify the main construction considerations, while a further prototype in acrylic was produced using a band-saw, to explore the materials behavior.
The design was then translated into Illustrator and "stencil" type face added.
Laser cutting the three main components in 3-mm acrylic took approximately 20 minutes.
