Rene,
That is very impressive. Should look really nice once finished. How long have you been working with Aspire?

I've had it since Last Jan, but been too busy to really start diving into all it's features. I've been puttering with some 3d stuff, but this sign has 6 different toolpaths & and machining techniques. 23 hours on the machine in total

Rene,

You used MDF? How are you going to finish it? Looks very nice, btw.

Its Medex..some kind of fancy MDF that withstands the outside environment. We tested it in a pail of water with some mdf and its stable. Not sure how long it will last outside though (-35c - +40c). It machines real nice, a bit harder than MDF.

I'm not going to be finishing it, The sign company I work for does all the finishing. I just cut em.
