Laser Cut Brain

Laser cut and laser engraved profiles of a brain.

yksong on Flickr made this model of a brain by laser cutting and laser engraving profiles onto clear acrylic. When stacked they suggest a 3-Dimensional image of a brain suspended inside the acrylic. The profiles can also be individually removed from the stack.

How else can you use this application of laser cutting and engraving? Perhaps a pendant made by stringing laser engraved sections on a cord? What if the outside, laser cut form was one shape and the inside, engraved form was another? Try something with Ponoko Make.
