It is hard to believe that it was only seven 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 - but I just knew it could do fantastic stuff.

Through extensive research I quickly found out that with the relative simplicity of EnRoute, CNC routers were capable of just about anything imaginable. This journal will chronicle that journey to date and continue each week with two or three entries as we continue to explore just what is possible with this wonderful software... -dan

One more set of pieces...

Pieces of the MultiCam project continue to be cut, assembled and stacked around the shop. Today the top of the ribs/arches for the boardroom were glued together. Each rib is made from 14 pieces and all have to fit together perfectly. With the precision I can achieve using EnRoute and the MultiCam router that is no problem - a far cry from my jigsaw days. 

Over the next few days I'll fasten the last pieces on, add the hand finished details and prime them in preparation for transport and final assembly on site. With the pieces now surrounding me every day I am anxious to see it all together at long last! It's going to look better than the concept by far!

Hopefully by the end of next week it will all become real...
