Polybowl by romanjurt Nov 18, 2011

Description

A simple bowl in "polygon" style. It has no undercut and is therefor easy to 3D-mill or 3D-print.
Designed and made by Martina Smoljo and Roman Jurt in three hours in the Fablab Luzern.
There is also a short clip and more pictures!
Enjoy! luzern.fablab.ch/polygon-schale

Hey, thank's! Ok. you're right. so, lets just say it's easy to mill from two sides. I have the milling plan - but it's a specific code for that wooden block i had with the tools i had... it will not be of use to anyone else...

the tools i used: roughing: 10mm flattip, finish: 10mm roundtip

i milled from both sides but stopped a 1/10mm before the sharp egde on the side...and then cut out with a cutter-knive... very simple...
Impressive work. A detail: no undercut means to me that it can be milled in one go. If you need double sided milling, you have undercuts by definition.

Also, perhaps you could share your milling plan? (or however your software calls it) Or a description of your strategy, what kind of bit you used etc. I would guess a radial pattern with a 6mm flat tip bit, but from the video I see you also had a roughing step? (why is that, not enough cutting edge on your bit?)
Very nice,

I like the faceted design and the way they look when stacked. I have a bunch of exotic hardwoods waiting for something worthy like this :-P.
