A full scale moose that’s a shoe rack? Siemen Cuypers was asked to design one for a kids’ library in Oslo. So he came up with the Shoe Moose.
First he used Rhino to model it in 3D, making sure everything fit together correctly. Then he turned everything into 2D drawings for CNC manufacturing. Next, he scaled everything down to a small scale prototype on the laser cutter for test assembly. Finally, he milled everything on the CNC and made an instruction manual to assemble the numbered pieces.
We spotted this project for Artisan Tech AS on the McNeel Forum.
Siemen Cuypers is a freelance product designer interested in digital manufacturing, visualization, and Grasshopper programming.
The finished moose ended up acting as a coat rack also.
