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

WOrking on two fronts at once!

While we were busy painting the board room at MultiCam our MultiCam was busy back at the ranch whittling out the last of the lot signs for our Oyama subdivision project. The signs were designed in EnRoute with bevels, layers and textures of course. They were cut from 30 lb Precision Board. Over the next few days we'll paint them up and gild them too for a little bit of sparkle. Each marker will be mounted to a large rock which is to be surrounded by a Japanese styled garden.

It's quite the pile of signs - with six more still being cut as I type. Using EnRoute and the MultiCam to create the signs (save for painting) makes production of this type of project easy and fast.
