topography lamp

[skills used: solidworks, slicer, laser cutting, vector illustration, keynote animation]

mirrors this project was a small experiment to learn how to produce 3D models with a laser cutter. when the models are sliced, i thought it looked like a topographical map.

so, the actual topography data for the half dome mountain was used to create the model. the most popular climbing route was cut out, and the cardboard rotated, so that when lit, the lamp illuminates the route.
