Brass origami

For experimenting with the material we used a 1.2 mm thickness sheet. Before starting the milling the brass sheet was attached to the machine’s board using double sided tape and 6 screws distributed on the edges. The RinoCam file was set using “2D Engraving” in 2 steps of 0.6 mm each; the first one contoured all the triangles of the origami pattern and the second one cut them leaving 0.6 mm bridges that allowed us to fold the piece. In spite of the total depth of the milling was 1.2 mm as the material, some areas were not cut though. The solution found for next experiments was to increase the total depth of the cut.
