Today was a day for paint! Finally, some colour! Not for me though, I get Jody to do it!
Although it didn't actually take too long to do.
I used to use mostly parallel flute cutters on pvc, but the edge quality with the Amana cutters makes it really hard to go back now!
All of the train parts are just going to be layered flats. It's a fast, strong way to build "seemingly" 3d depth.
Now to put all the crazy pieces together...........
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.
