CNC Milling: Mancala Board

In this project, I made a Mancala board using the carvey and fusion 360.

Because Mancala boards have such simplistic designs, I knew exactly what I wanted my design to look like and how I’d create it in fusion. Doing this was just a matter of trial and error with the size and spacing of the circles. Fusion 360 made it extremely easy to change the size of the circles which allowed me to get the sizing correct in very little time.

This project did a very well job introducing me to the carvey and destructive modeling. I loved watching a big block of wood turn into a design that I created in fusion. However, I experienced lots of error with the carvey such as calibrating and connectivity issues.

 

I think destructive modeling is very interesting and would love to dive deeper into it
