frobzwiththingz: (fractal)
[personal profile] frobzwiththingz
25 years ago, I was still working at a small company in Cambridge called Cybermation. We made CNC machines for the signmaking industry; routers and plasma cutters. We made both the software and the hardware. I worked on the software side. The company is long out of business, but many of the machines are *still* in use today. (google for Cybermation 700A)

It was a small company, only 5 of us doing the design software. I had just on a whim put some code that would allow you to take any geometric path that you defined, and a border, and generate a fractal path on the border using the supplied path as the fractal path.

Needing to test this all the way out to a cut finished part eventually, I made a couple of actual test pieces out of 1/4 and 1/8 acrylic sheet.

It's been over *25 years* since I made this, and maybe 5 years since I got it framed (at Baldwin Hill Art & Framing in Leominster, MA [now in Natick]), and I *finally* mounted it on a wall in the house today.

Better late than never at all.
