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.

Weird Things On My Desk#2

A foam rc plane, and a 3d printed dragonfly body!

3D water sculpt
I ended up having to drill .020" holes into the deeper low spots, so I could get them to suck down tight.

 Putting the mold back on the cnc went swimmingly! And they trimmed out quite nicely!

In the end, it all came out great! I really wanted to remove the masking from the PET-G, but I needed
to keep it as scratch free for delivery.
Another short run job for us in the bag!
