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.

Rendering while we work!

We got another job late yesterday, so that left us to pick up some materials, and draw up the files.

The latest jobs are both design and renders for some upcoming work.

As far as I know, the train will be fabricated by another shop, but I'll supply the files extracted from the 3d model. The lamp post I'm hoping that we'll get to build, but we'll see how it plays out!

Meanwhile, we're working non-stop to fit in the Thursday night job!

I guess I'll sleep when I'm dead!
