My object was “Kitchen Utensil” and my descriptor was “Paper Craft.” I found a site online that described how to make a 16 pointed modular star: origami That made me think of a ravioli cutter that scores pasta. I also wanted to do something I had never done before and using the laser cutter for the first time seemed like a great way to do that!
For the handle I was inspired by Damon who ordered and assembled a deer and moose, cardboard laser cut model for our studio: cardboard safari
After printing the components I assembled and bonded the pieces. To make the ravioli cutter “semi” functional I proxy glued x-acto blades to the points in the star. Here is a slide show of some images from my process.
Below is a demo video of the Paperavioli scoring pasta:
