Architectural Model

I’ve been following this thread since I got my E2 and have been wanting to post something for a while. This model is for my Masters and was made entirely from my laser cutter.

I’m really loving all the things you can make from this machine!

Whoah! Well done.

Can you tell us a little about the project and where this location is?

This is a project located on the University of Canberra, aimed at providing alternatives to the sprawling nature of a campus.

It has been a work in progress for 14 weeks, but I was able to create the model in roughly 3 days (cutting and layering, not designing)

That’s impressive, Peter!

What thickness are the contour lines?  Do they represent 10 metre or 1 metre contours?


I’ve stayed only   briefly on the ANU site about 3 times over about 20 years.   I’m not too clear on the landforms, beyond the steep rise to the (Botanic?) gardens and the fall to the lake:  but the buildings!   It rambles, indeed, and seemed to be going on with that style.  All the best with your work!




The contours are at 2m intervals so make for a decent volume of material.

The best thing was I was able to engrave the outline of the next contour onto the one I was working on, meaning I could just place it on top, perfectly positioned.
