Jody and I had an "extra" long weekend. Partly due to it being the Victoria day holiday, and partly cause "I say so":)
Last Wednesday we were contacted by Director and Producer Mike Rybinski at www.spotcinema.com
Mike asked us to replicate the 70's show "The Dating Game" logo.
Very straight forward indeed. They sent a black and white image of the logo, which I was able to quickly vectorise and toolpath in Aspire.
Mike's coming around noon tomorrow to pick them up, so that saves us a trip to the studio tomorrow!
These kind of jobs are the best, quick turn around, with no 'back and forth' design overhauls!
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.
