Student Project: Megan Maynard

Megan Maynard, a former graduate student from Louisiana Tech School of Design used Rhino to design the internal and external shapes. In RhinoCam Megan used inside and outside 2 Axis Profiling toolpaths that were then cut out on the school’s Multicam CNC Plasma. Megan then bent the metal by hand to give the appearance that the forms are taking over!  Read the full case study here.

“Fungi is where I pull inspiration from for the shapes and patterns that are present in these works. Mushrooms, a form of fungi, can be pulled from the ground and turned upside down to show the life history of the fungi and how it grew, unlike people. We like to hide our past if it does not fit into the spectrum of the culture we live in or the groups we equate ourselves with.”

– Nice! Looks like Megan has secured a future in cinematic special effects! –
