Skillbuilder #3 - The Techno Router
I have been waiting since last semester to try out to the techno router, so was really excited to get to experiment with what the tool can do.
At first I wanted to experiment with creating shades and gradients through halftones on the router, but ran into a couple of problems. The biggest one being time, with so many paths the cam software took a long time to create toolpaths, and the time necessary to pocket so many shapes wasn't available with all of us trying to use the router this week. So I moved on to a design that was more simple to get more exposure to the tool before I try the halftones this weekend.
