We encountered many challenges during the laser cutting process, which affected the outcome of the project. First of which was the wear and tear of the laser tube which made for inaccurate cuts on the 3mm wood, and we had to manually remove the individual pieces before a solid piece can be ready.
We also failed to notice a major flaw in the design system of connecting the wood panels together. The patterns had to be cut at an incredibly small size to allow for such intricate and precise geometric cuts, and with the laser tube not working at its maximum potential, we had to reorganize the entire direction of the project.
After much deliberation, we decided to create an exploded form instead of a connected one, placed on styrofoam and covered with sand to create a natural, organic look.
