Omigosh! I have no words for this, really… other than it’s marvelous. Like a bed of sea anemones undulating just below the surface. Amazing work both in scope and artistic skill. The video was mesmerizing. Thank you so much for sharing with all of us.

thank you :slight_smile: I cut two layers of duralar at the same time with the settings at 400 for speed and 35 for the power. The thickness is .005

I salute your artistic inspiration and ability. Marvelous!
A wonderful mechanized mimicry of Nature. “Art - the conveyance of spirit by means of matter.

The movement looks just like time-lapse videos of buds opening – the same little delicate trembling, hesitations when the petals hit each other, then suddenly flaring as they get past the obstacle…it’s beautiful!

Amazing! Playing that cool atmospheric background music while the petals open really adds to the experience; does it do that in real life?
