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

Dino might!

The primary assignment for our students was to design and create a dinosaur head. Using our imaginations was certainly encouraged of course. Each student was given the same assignment and a routed backer board to build it on. It didn't take long for some marvelous creations to come alive at the easels. 

I had never seen dinosaurs like these! It would only get better when they were painted...
