CNC Milling a Mobius strip

This video shows the manufacture of one of three 2011 MobiPrize awards, designed by a firm called rvtr. The MobiPrize “recognizes enterprises that demonstrate innovative and replicable solutions to local and global transportation challenges.” The award itself features a prominent Mobius strip motif, which is machined out of a piece of recycled aluminum on a 5-axis mill. The good stuff starts around 0:44. [via adafruit]
