The Challenge

Challenged with a difficult task, the Cristaux team knew they had to take their time with this project. Ultimately, we were asked to take a newly engineered wheel spoke and create a cross sectional element into the final design.

The Solution

We took the original wheel spoke and extruded it into a 3D file which we could eventually laser into a crystal block. Although our intentions seemed simple, the amount of detail that were to go into the spoke design forced us to amp up the 3D laser file. Our production team cranked up the machines to the highest definition that they would go, adding four times the amount of processing time. Finally, we etched and color filled the Porsche logo into side the awards, creating a definitive, unique effect.
