What If Michelangelo Had CNC?

The famous sculptor Michelangelo reportedly wrote in a letter:

I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.

What a wonderful way to express his art.  I don’t know for sure what Michelangelo would’ve thought of CNC, but watching it in action is often like seeing something set free.  Here are some videos I’ve enjoyed watching that show this spirit.  They’re all pretty short:

It is not only the human form that has angelic curves…

A quick panel at 400 IPM…

Quintessential Female Form…

Mass production…

Metal…

Monsters…

Have you got a quick YouTube of something sculptural or artistic on your CNC?  Share it in the comments!

  • The art is in seeing what is inside the block. No amount of cnc or computing can help there.

    • Yes, of course. That’s why the machines themselves are worthless without their human designers, machinists, and operators.
