So here are some pics of my first 3D Design class project. The basic idea is to create a 3D form using 13 parallel planes. I didn't want to do something boring, so I came up with this:
I'm not religious or anything, but the cross is a simple form that looks complex in this context.
The center piece is a 7x7 inch square. For the first piece, each corner has a .5 inch square cut out. Every plane after that has another half inch cut out until you arrive at the cross, which is 1 inch wide on all four arms.
A time consuming project, but really fun. I like constructing things.
Our next project is a bit more complicated. More details on that one later.
