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

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.
