Fabrication Process – Laser Cutting
Material Used – 2mm Plywood
Time Taken – 1 hour 40 minutes.

The very purpose of understanding the mechanism of laser cutting was best achieved by testing and designing various patterns for achieving two-way bending. Increasing the tension by the relative increase in the material length best helped to achieve the desired results.

Observing the behavior of the material in the bending our goal was to create a pattern that would make several foldings with the cutting lines and make the path of the material in the folding direction as long it could be. The final length of the path is 2.2 times longer than the straight one.
