So, for my first Glowforge project, I decided to do something I had started over a year prior… The maze from Westworld.
Now, I had had this thing designed, maze AND box art, within a few days of the episode airing, but I couldn’t get my hands on a laser, which seemed the only way to do this right (the tight corners mean no CNC bit would be small enough).
The entire thing was cut on the glowforge, including the lid. I designed in an erratic outer ring of peaks and valleys to simulate the look of a hand cut wall for the lid, and it came out really well. Looks just like the prop. Similarly, there are some wonky bits in the paths of the maze; a couple of walls that taper to really thin points on one side, two paths that are offset where a wall blocks the way, and a wall that tapers at the end, to name a few. These are all intentional and done to match the prop.
I also recreated the box art from scratch. Aside from the text, it was digitally painted 100% on my iPad Pro.
Hope you guys like it.
