How to make (almost) anything - Assignment 8

This week we were taught how to do molding and casting. I decided to design my own chess set and failed miserably.

The idea is to feed height maps to the milling machine to mill 3D molds in wax. Then cast the polyurethane to make the actual mold for the pieces to be casted in gypsum cement. I decided to design my mold in illustrator and set myself up for failure from the great beginning.

If I have free time later in the year, I want to make shot-glass shaped freezer molds.
