It is hard to believe that it was almost ten years ago I witnessed a CNC router in action for the very first time. I was fascinated and simply had to have one! Although I had been in the creative end of the three dimensional sign business for most of my life I didn't really know what I would do with one of these machines - but I just knew it could do fantastic stuff.

Along with the CNC router I discovered the wonderful material called Precision Board and the glues, primers and other companion products they offer. Since then we have gone through many tons of the material using it in most signs and projects we tackle. This journal will chronicle our many adventures both past, present and future. I'll talk from the perspective of someone who pushes these products to the creative limit on a daily basis. I'll be adding to the stories two or three times each week. -dan

Sonbuilt 3D logo build part 6

From here on it will be sculpting and painting but before I got into things too far I decided to mock up the trees in front to make sure we were achieving the look of the original logo artwork. My concern was how it would look with the severe upwards perspective with the new artwork we will be sculpting in. I think it is looking pretty good. The waterfall will be sculpted to be a series of small waterfalls, trying to make the water tumble as much as possible. I think I'll fork the falls to make them appear between the trees as much as possible. It should come along pretty quick now.
