Decomposed 2-iteration Menger sponge, distinct layers.
Prototype sub-assembly for a 2-iteration Menger sponge kit. Full kit will be 414 pieces! (Most of them the very small ones.)
Wrote up some more details on this test on birbsite:

Hello, I'm Johnny Ke$ha
A couple morning experiments with laser cut layers:
1. a stratified wooden sphere enclosed in a clear acrylic cube.
2. a stack of accumulating bisections of material.

Tonight I managed to finalize a working design for a laser cut Menger sponge (vs. the simpler pseudo-sponge with no insides that I'd done recently).
Doesn't look a ton different from the pseudo-sponge at a glance, but it's far more mathematically satisfying. Has a nicer heft too from the extra pieces. Also a lot more work to put together!
Did a great big 90 minute glowforge cut today, of this 5-iteration Sierpinski carpet...and had a fuck up right at the end with the software that led to an alignment problem that ruined the whole thing.
I mean it's still neat looking, but it's fucked up too and I was hoping to make one that wasn't fucked up.
Did my first clear acrylic cut with the glowforge tonight (after figuring out the my original planned cut for the evening was gonna take 87 minutes, which, nah, that can wait till tomorrow).
This actually looks pretty cool?
