Gummy due to the fact that the teeth won't be cut until tomorrow! Today was another 'just as planned' day. I really like these kind of days (aim low, and your never disapointed ;) I drew up the files for the cedar sign last night. We seem to have the only cnc router that isn't limited to 2d cutting. By this I just mean that we cut all the dimensional signage for about 5 local sign shops. This is very good for us! Sometimes I am just as happy to run the files, and let someone else do the finishing work. They needed the 2'X3' sign for today, so I let our Techno cnc buzz through that while I cleaned up all the seams on the shark dispenser. For a change, I really liked sanding this time. Normally it can be very boring, but I just kept moving forward.
I think he will make an awesome addition to the Ripley's Aquariums.
When I lent my services to a collegue who was working on a film about 12 years ago, I was introduced to the world of cnc. I remember watching this huge machining centre milling out a slab of mdf and turning it into a fantastic set of gears. I knew that it would have taken me hours to achieve the same thing with traditional power tools. I decided then that I would invest in a cnc router for my own business Oxenham Design. At that time I could turn on a computer, but even to check email seemed like a crazy set of operations. I persevered and learned every piece of relevant software I could get my hands on. I am now fortunate enough to be using Vectric's ASPIRE software, and Techno cnc routers, which has helped us to create some amazing projects, both in part, or in full. I thought that this blog would be a great place to share "behind the scenes" adventures with the software, materials and equipment we use, as well as the projects we build.
