I used Haas programming to design a lightsaber on CNC machine.
I learned the following:
I grew up watching Star Wars with my dad and I have always had the dream of having or making my own lightsaber. I thought that would be a cool object to replicate on the CNC machine.
In reflection, one thing that I would have done differently during my journey with this showcase is to make several draft sketches before trying to program the lightsaber design.
One thing I am most proud of by completing this showcase is I am really proud of the quality of how the lightsaber turned out. Being able to turn a drawing into a real life object was very satisfying.
