The brief was to make an ornate cross, 90mm high by 65mm wide with scrolly work in it..
I drew the base with Rhino to get us as far as a weight estimate then filled it in with tsplines for the curly wurly stuff :)
Just dumping in here.. only part done, will sort once its all uploaded :)
Start with a clip of the first bit :)
and some imagery :)
The Raw Tsplines geometry in production
Aclose up of the detail
Off to DeskProto for pathing
And onto the minitech for milling.. roughing pass.
and the first bit done :)
The Final bit, the knucle that holds it all together
Then time to split off the supports
A quick dusting of ocre for pictures, then split it all back up for casting..
Finally Finished :)
The chain procured and the St Christopher attached
And just as an idea of scale :)
(some months on from this I have recieved a repeat order for a second cross, 20% smaller than the original)
