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

Rapid Texture

Rapid Texture is another unique feature of EnRoute software. With this function you can cover a whole lot more surface in a hurry and achieve some very cool surface and textures. It uses the tool shape to create the texture.  I have primarily used it to create wainscoting for the MultiCam office and  in our new house. The effects and possibilities are truly limitless.

To best show the technique I've decided to go to the video that is on the EnRoute website www.enroutesoftware.com/EnRouteTV11-Videos They have some great tutorial videos there.
