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

First pieces of the puzzle arrive.

We've routed a lot of Precision Board into some pretty wild signs over the years. In the next days our MultiCam will be pressed into service once more. But instead of routing our normal three dimensional stuff the machine will be used to cut up a whole lot of plywood for the window bucks of our new house. 

The materials arrived today. 

I'll be posting pictures soon of how all the pieces go together.
