1/29 - 2/2

During this week, we continued to work on our first project and finish up our vinyl assignment. For this assignment, we were required to illustrate an image of our choice that would be appropriate for application on the vinyl cutter. The the file was uploaded into a program intended to find and trace the vectors, cutting out the sticker. Once finish, we had to take exacto knives to the vinyl sheet and pull/cut out any unnecessary vinyl material.

1/15-1/19

During this week we experimented with use of the CNC. We first had to draw three ".ai" files and select our favorite to be drawn. The CNC was drawing with a fine point sharpie and had a canvas size of 36in x 24in. We then had to monitor the drawing process to insure proper function of the machine (I'll provide some footage). After 36 minutes of waiting, I had a huge sharpie drawing of Kurt Cobain! Time to start working towards the next assignment...
