Aluminum Pepper


The second project for my advanced manufacturing and design course was focused on learning how to use the CNC mill that we have in our shop.  We were told to design a piece that would make use of a variety of tools with a complicated shape.  I took my inspiration from my love of Chipotle and designed a pepper in SolidWorks. I then used SolidCAM, an add on program that help to generate tool paths for the CNC mill to run.  The pepper was made from an aluminum disc and then polished.
