Where do I even begin… this is actually long overdue.
I made this plaque back in September 2015 around when milestone two was released. This was a final project for my CNC course in college. I had to design, program, and operate a CNC machine to cut a piece of aluminum in a way that showcased what we learned. It got hectic the months after this, with graduating and looking for jobs, I keep putting off posting pictures of this.
After seeing the latest post on patron about the legacy version, I decided to kick my butt into gear and get this done. I dug out all the pictures and vids I took previously and also took some new ones today. I hope you enjoy.
The longest process I would say would be vectoring all the designs from the limited sources I had for the engraving. I Had to also simplify the vibaelia badge design so that it wouldn’t take too long to cut. It wasn’t till doing this that I realized the design looked like a bird. Also had I known ahead of time, that the shape of the vibaelia badge from milestone two had a different shape, I might have went with that look.
short vids of the design process.
An early stage of the cutting process. I should have recorded more of the cutting process but this was the only vid I have of this.
This is basically all the process of the part without going into detail. I have no idea if this is interesting to other people but I felt like sharing some of it anyways.
The rest of this are pictures I took today to see if I could display it better and play around with it.
One day if I have the time and resources, I hope to make a prop replica of the transceiver from Fault. (not with CNC but general DIY materials)
But for now I’ll be busy rushing an anime cosplay that’s due in less than 2 months for a convention. x_x
Thanks for reading this far =)
Have fun in whatever you do and don’t procrastinate like me. xD
