Assignment 5

Diamond by Erika Vegerfors







In assignment 5 I chosed to cast a diamond. I model the diamond up in a 3D program. To extract the parts accurate, I used a laser cutter to help me erase the pieces from the carton I used as a mold. During the casting process, I received problems with the recipe we received the teachers and therefore did I a test, to investigate the best relationship between water and cement. I found out that 1 part cement and 0,7 parts of water is needed for the casting to work. In the final cast, I have just that relation. But, I belive that up to 0,9 parts of water would even work better.
