A little clip of the sheet router doing some finishing. This is a 3d carving of The Last Supper … when it’s done, I’ll post a project of it!

I just took an introductory CNC class at the local Tech Shop here in Detroit, and I am just amazed and overwhelmed at all the lines of code you have to write to get the machine to do anything, let alone carve something so intricate as this. I’m still going to take some more classes to learn how to run some of the machines, like the shopbot and mill, but I just wonder if it’s faster to just pick up a hammer and chisel and carve it yourself, instead of writing all those lines, wink, wink. I’ll give you this, the nice thing about these machines is that if you can save the program, you can make multiple carvings and have them all look the same. Repeatibiility is one selling point for these machines.

Nah it’s not for ArtPrize, it’s actually for the West Catholic fair! :)

Mip – yeah it can be a pain. CNC is definitely not always faster or even easier.
