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.

Oval is the new round tire
I ran the 2 other toolpaths needed to finish the 4 sidewalls on the cartoon F1 car tires first thing this morning. I have come down with a nasty cold, so I haven't actually been putting in full days at the shop since Monday. But, I'm almost at 8 hrs today-almost!
Just the rest of the tires, the driver, and the spoilers, and were done. Oh, and the final paint.
