ESCAPE HASH II – CNC Cut-Out Print on Acrylic

I’m using the 3d medium as a new way to make 2d prints. This is a new artistic process for me. When I made a 3d printed Hash sign for the recent W/O Limits exhibition at the Artists Archives, https://andrewreach.com/escape-hash-3d-printed-sculpture…/ I first did renders of it to study the form. A lightbulb went off in my head and I realized I could take these renders, export them out and transform them into 2d cnc cut-out prints. Here, this hash sign was modeled in Blender and transformed into this 2d print.
