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

Great start!

This morning bright and early the first of the attendees arrived for the workshop, By mid morning there were two. At lunchtime another joined the fun and through the afternoon the rest arrived. Everyone was eager to get started and once the introductions were done we kicked things into gear. 
We played with the plasm cutter and welder and then started in on the sculpting concrete project. Everyone tried their hand at this new (for them) art form. By this time the ice was broken (and melted away) and the questions were coming thick and fast. The sharing and learning had begun for real.

This is a great group that is hungry for knowledge and hands-on experience. The workshop doesn't start officially until tomorrow....
This is going to be fun!
