Parametric design

My wife is a bit of a shoe nut, so I thought that I would test the idea of making these to make a piece of “shoe art”. Now that I know how the process works, the plan is to do something worth hanging on a wall.

In the meantime, here is one for your consideration and critique.

This was is about 30" x 24". The slats are 1/4" thick with a 1/4" gap between. Done in MDF.


Novel idea ! Excellent…


What did you use to create the design? I’ve been trying to learn Fusion360 with the extension slicer for Fusion360 off and on for a while now.

@Swinly I used VCarvePro. It has a slicing feature, but this concept does not use it. Here is a link to Michael Mezalick’s youtube video showing the process. The beauty of it is that, without tiling, the design can be 30" tall using a 30 x 30 Long Mill. The width can be anything since the number of slats is infinite.

Michael’s video is pretty much self-explanatory, but if you have any questions, I’ll try to address them.
