Well a generic version of a similar plane....................
This job is for a print campaign. I don't have any idea of what the final image will be used for, but I don't really need to know either! I was sent a PDF sketch, and we'll basically build everything in the sketch, plus a little bit more for safety. That way they have a small amount of room to move the camera, depending on how they lens it.
Our client needed a small section of jetliner interior. The image will be a tight shot of a person looking out the window.
I did a google image search of airplane interiors, and downloaded a ton of reference material, including some 3d cad renderings.
Very little of this build will be full on 3d cnc machining, but more just flat cut elements.
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.
