The boring-ness of cncing cardboard stencils on our Techno was broken up today when I was able to spare a bit of time to work on the shelves for the new office. They aren't overly fancy, but they'll be cool nonetheless!
They'll match the new desk in terms of style, which will keep the theme going.
The excitement quickly waned as I loaded up the next set of stencils to be cut. Soon we'll be done these things, after a while, they all start to look the same :)
We got a call today for an interesting gig. They want a companies logo carved into a potatoe for a print campaign. They asked if we would make it from another material and paint it to look like a potatoe, but it's always better if you can use the real thing.
So stay tuned, you may get to see first hand, Oxenham Design 3D machining a potatoe on our Techno cnc.
If you can't cut it with a Techno, you can't cut it!
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.
