    "Design sporks that can be made with sand casting, extrusion, or sheet metal." I came up with -one ergonomic spork inspired by a pea pod to be sand-casted, -a variation on the sandcasting design adjusting for extrusion + CNC machining, and -one spork that can be laser cut (maybe CNCed) by a 2-axis cutter out of a single sheet and folded. Additionally, the spork needed to lift steak, carry soup, and twirl spaghetti. Result: voted best in class by peers, selected as best aesthetics by professor.

"Design sporks that can be made with sand casting, extrusion, or sheet metal."

I came up with 
-one ergonomic spork (inspired by a pea pod) to be sand-casted,
-a variation on the sandcasting design adjusting for extrusion + CNC machining, and 
-one spork that can be laser cut (maybe CNCed) by a 2-axis cutter out of a single sheet and folded.

Additionally, the spork needed to lift steak, carry soup, and twirl spaghetti.

Result: voted best in class by peers, selected as best aesthetics by professor.
