There was a bit of a set back today when the "ready for primer' top hat got bumped and fell on the floor :(
The top section, which was made from 3/4" pvc, popped off, and both pieces rolled across the shop floor.
Stupid monopoly hat.
I wasn't able to close the mesh properly, but instead of fighting with it, I just employed my usual work around.
The dog will be the first piece I have cut on our new Techno lc3024 table top machine. I think I have been avoiding using our new cnc because it's SO new, and clean. I think making it dirty and dusty was a big mental block for me........weird or what?
It hums along beautifully. It max's out at 250 ipm which is pretty awesome for a machine this size.
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.
