The Coonskin

I posted this picture of a couple of FRISCO signs I made last weekend over in my Dimensional Art blog. These were made on my home made HB2 CNC router using Vectric Aspire software and a few other computer control programs. Jump over to both links and take a look. I can do everything shown in the Vectric web site.


I just spent two days at the Vectric Users meeting over by the DFW airport here in Dallas. Vectric produces several CNC designer products (I have them all) but their premiere product Aspire (especially) is the creatived software I use the most to design and create the complex forms I machine with my HB2 router machine.
