First up on the Monopoly build is the iron! It may be because it looked the easiest, I don't really know.
This will be a straight build, with no 3d work on our Techno cnc.
The iron will sit clamped overnight, while we moved on to the other elements.
Next on the list was the hat. I figured this was the most amount of work, and wanted to get started on it right away.
I'm also cutting a slightly larger one to wrap around the first one. This will allow me to overlap the seams, and make the wall thickness 1/8" thick. The double wrapping will also help the styrene hold its shape securely.
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.
