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

Visit to the candy factory

We love to be creative. We also love tools that allow us to go as far as possible in this regard. Today we got to visit the ultimate candy factory - where they make MultiCam CNC machines in Texas. Everything is indeed bigger in this state and this place is MASSIVE, with machines of every description in various stages of finish. Kelsey and his team generously showed us around. We even got to try some delicious Texas barbecue. 

Our purpose for the visit was to learn all about MultiCam CNC plasma cutters as we will soon be adding one to our arsenal. We'll be using EnRoute fab to create the plasma files. We look forward to seeing what kind of creative things we can make with this cool new tool giving us a hand. Stay tuned...
