This is my first precedent image of a laser cutting which is just a laser cutting of a strip which has then been heated and twisted around. Due to the shape of my model this image jumped out at me because of the curves which I have had trouble with.

This precedent of a spiral laser cutting caught my eye as it is a similar shape to my hero model and gave me the inspiration for how I was going to make my final model. Like this image I will be laser cutting spirals and then heating them so that they drop down to form tornado-'esque' shapes.
