With the new four axis MultiCam now only about four weeks away I am working on the designs for a few pieces which will help us learn and explore the capabilities of the new CNC machine. One of the pieces is a new display for Precision Board (Coastal Enterprises). When I visited them a few weeks ago I was struck by just how green their operation and products are. I want to create a showpiece for them that demonstrated this message. The piece will also feature LED illumination from Heico Lighting. The LED's will be tucked under the ribbon, top and bottom to give it a green glow.
The six foot tall piece will be carved from a single, massive block of 30 lb Precision Board. But rather than waste all the material that would normally be turned to dust, the folks at Coastal Enterprises will glue up a custom made block of the correct dimensions. It is a service they provide. This will be chucked up into the new four axis MultiCam and whittled to the final shape.
The folks at EnRoute are busy making sure I have the software capabilities I need and we will undoubtably create and solve some problems along the way. It is going to be exciting!
