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.

Finally Taking Flight

A while ago we posted about the "flying Machine" we had built. If you haven't read it yet, do a search for "flying machine" in the search bar. This was a great build to say the least. Getting to work with Davina Rimmer was awesome. Her passion for this project was so amazing. She finally sent us a couple of digital screen shots from the film.

We were invited to the premiere, but we couldn't make it because it fell on the week we were in Indiana. I wish Davina, and everyone else who worked so hard on this, all the best. I hope we get a chance to work together in the very near future!
