I had purposely left the hands on Counterspy guy until last. I must have sliced these every which way but Sunday. In the end I decided that maybe having them FDM 3d printed would be the answer. Until I got the estimate. They wanted $1500 a set. That would have been 3 grand for just the hands! Clearly I need to start a 3d printing business....................
I decided to go back to the drawing board and not rest until I had solved it!
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.
