Few weeks ago i came across this amazing grasshopper definition, which lets you create waffle section of an object that you modeled in rhino.
At the same time i was also experimenting with lofted object. I wanted to loft crazy curves, but i wanted to do something useful as well.
Since i don’t have access to a laser cutter. so i printed the paper and pasted it on a box board sheet and started cutting it manually
If you want you can make your own pencil jar as well here is the folder with instruction (link).
here this the final result
