Phil, the director and series creator, sent me over a couple of images of his idea for the lighthouse.
Nothing complicated, a pretty straightforward design.
The drawings were all done as 2d vectors, that would eventually get cut on our Techno, from 1/4" PVC. PVC is the first choice for this. It holds up well outside, is light and easy to cut, and a dream to paint!
This mold is being done from 18lb HDU. Once we pull one test piece for approval, we'll re-cut the mold from 60lb tooling board.
It was nice to have both machines cutting away! The little tabletop Techno was an amazing purchase, as it frees up our big machine for 4X8 sheet stuff like the lighthouse!
