Dianel Dean and Ryan use cnc wood router to produce a mold for their project " Underground Sound". Their project is with some giant flowers, which allow people to hear the sound from earth via megaphones.

The mold for the megaphone was designed in Rhino and imported into Enroute software as an .STL. They created all the toolpathing in EnRoute. The form was cut in pieces on the CNC wood router (http://www.omni-cnc.com) using a 1/2" wide by 3.5" tall ball nose bit. Daniel glued together panel board to be 3.5" deep and divided the megaphone up into various sections. Once cut, the sections were glued together to create the final form, which was then used as a mold for the fiberglass.
