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

Sign Magic Workshop almost here!

The last couple days have been frantic with many meetings and lots of organizing. I haven't had much time to create routing files. The beauty of having a MultiCam is I can easily keep it busy while I do other things. It can work all by itself(as long as I fed it the right instructions)

The next Sign Magic Workshop is just over two weeks away. So the CNC is kept busy cranking out textured letter panels for our guests to practice their painting and glazing techniques. Custom name tags for each guest will be the next task. I'll be doing step by steps on a few of those files in the next days. 

Stay tuned...
