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

We are now through our first day of the Orlando Sign Magic Workshop. While the class size may be small, the enthusiasm for learning is high. Each student is getting plenty of one on one time and getting all their questions answered. EJ Nordurft, the product rep from EnRoute is aptly handling the technical side of the lessons while I handle the artistic side. We've covered lots of EnRoute territory and also done some hands-on parts of the workshops. The entire group is experienced in EnRoute and eager to learn more. It is going well!

Tomorrow I'll be gathering more pictures of the projects as we proceed. Stay tuned...
