It was another 'over night' build. The deadline was soooooo short on this job. I did ask myself a few times "what was I thinking?", mostly that got asked of myself around 4:30 am! The pvc shelves that our Techno cnc was rabbeting went pretty quick, I barely had time to clean the finished ones up before the next part needed flipping. It was a total production job.
They came to pick them up at around 2, then I went home and crashed till 9 pm.
We've got more of these to make, with french graphics, but they're not due until Monday. The good news is we knew about it, and made enough parts for this run as well, so it will really only be an assembly job. I don't think I'm gonna start work till 10 tomorrow, cause I'm the boss!
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.
