Hi all I am not much of a person that gets on and post in the forum due to being so busy. But I figured this project is definitely post worthy. A little about myself I started my company about 3 years ago Kennys Custom Woodworking I have 2 4x8ft cnc machines that I built myself. I mainly cut letters and monograms that I wholesale to gift shops and collegiate stores mainly in the southeast and do various cabinet and furniture jobs locally around my hometown. I purchased aspire about 3 years ago definitely the best decision ever. Recently a local company that has ties to FSU came to me and asked me if I could do a project for them I agreed. This project got me the opportunity to really play with this software and put its true capabilities to work. After taking a photograph of the helmet. I then took the photograph and worked up the 3d image for both items. After a few minor design changes made by them this is what I got to fabricate. Both this items where done in hdu sign board 2"s thick and then finished off with automotive paint to look like bronze another job that was a daunting task that I had to learn. The helmet was layered 4 times to a total thickness of 8 inches. And the logo layered 2 times. Both items are located on the campus. Anyways really busy now so here is the picture of the outcome of the items. I will try to get into more of a habit of posting pictures of some of my new jobs as I complete them. And kudos to aspire for the awesome cnc software absolutely the best.
