Process

My process for creating work is the culmination of my research from the last thirteen years. This process begins with a Rhino drawing which is either milled from wood or foam or 3D printed. Often I use these parts together to create molds for casting clay. I am constantly trying to discover new ways to utilize CNC and 3D fabrication technology in my work.

Tutorials

During my time after graduate school, my research has focused on mastering RhinoCAM, 3 axis milling 4 axis milling with the use of the rotary table attachment. I have written tutorials on some of these topics which are available to my students on my web site, paulcallahan.net.
