The little yogi robots that could(n’t)
The Asana Bot started life as a turnaround sketch for a graduate school class called Art Toy Design.
All 2D & 3D CAD was done in Vectorworks, 3D CAM was done in Roland’s proprietary SRP Player.
The Asana Bot series is made of a walnut and baltic birch wood, milled on a Roland 4 Axis CNC Mill. The “Om” inlay on the chest is made of brass. Initial prototyping of the bots was done on a 3D printer with modeling clay.
After milling, the wood shell was sanded, and polished via a 3 stage lathe buffing mandrel.
