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

More samples

The fox routed up pretty quick. While that file was running on the MultiCam I opened the barrel head relief file. I had saved it as a stand alone file so I could use it for other things in the future.

When I was searching for the fox I had also located a pretty good blood hound STL file. I popped int onto the barrel head and merged it with the relief. It was ready for tool pathing in seconds.

As I created this blog it was running on the MultiCam, from 30 lb Precision Board.

This afternoon I'll whip on a couple coats of paint and glaze in preparation for the meeting on Monday.
