Modificate the file for the laser cutter.

Save the file in DXF.

STEP 2: CUT THE PLEXIGLASS

Move the file in the laser cutter.

Cut the plexiglass by the laser cutter to obtain the 4 sides of the pyramid.

STEP 3: GLUE THE PLEXIGLASS

Glue the 4 sides of the pyramid

STEP 4: MAKE THE HOLOGRAM VIDEO

Produce images on Adobe Illustrator to then put them in series for the video.

Set up a specific duration for the video. Save the video.

STEP 5: ACTION THE HOLOGRAM

Put the video on full screen and place the plexiglass pyramid, with the small surface down, in the middle of the screen.

Step 3: THE CASE

STEP 1: CREATE THE COLUMNS

Draw 5 rectangles for each columns in size 3x30 cm and their bases (4 circles with a radius of 3.5 cm with an rectangular hole in the middle in size 3x3.3 cm) on inkscape.

Modificate the file for the laser cutter. Save the file in DXF.

STEP 2:CUT THE CARDBOARD

Move the file in the laser cutter.

Cut the cardboard by the laser cutter to obtain the pieces for the column.

STEP 3: CREATE THE CASE

Draw the construction of the case on inkscape (two rectangles in size 15 x 30 cm, two rectangles i size 30x50 cm and a rectangles 15 x 50 cm).

Modificate the file for the laser cutter.

Save the file in DXF.

STEP 4: CUT THE CARDBOARD

Move the file in the laser cutter.

Cut the cardboard by the laser cutter to obtain the faces of the case.

STEP 5: PAINT THE CASE

Paint the case completely black.

Paint the columns and their bases completely gold.

STEP 6: ASSEMBLE ALL THE PARTS

Glue the corners and assemble all the parts.

Step 4: THE VASE

STEP 1: CREATE THE VASE

Draw the vase on tinkercad.

Save the file.

STEP 2: PREPARE THE VASE

Resize the vase on Cura with it actual size.

Modificate the file for the 3d printing.

Save the file.

STEP 3: PRINT THE VASE

Move the vase in the 3d printing.
