Andreas taught as how to use the laser cutter machine, which is capable of cutting and engraving. Our task was to create a physical data representation of the data visualisation we created in the Coding 1 Exercise.
Preparation for Laser Cutting
Before we can use the laser cutter machine, we had to prepare a vector file of the shapes we wanted to cut on Adobe Illustrator (AI).
Sometimes, we can understand data better when we can view it visually and especially when it is produced as a 3D model which we can touch with our hands. It gives a new dimension to the data collected.
