Even after more than four years of running our MultiCam router I can’t resist sneaking into the router room to watch it perform it’s MAGIC. I know it is all based on math formulas but I find it incredible that I don’t have to think of all that. I dream up my ideas, create my files and push start on the router. Then the MAGIC happens every time!
While the machine was busy I went back to my office and stated work on the next file needed for the sign. The vector files were created in mere minutes using the drawing tools in EnRoute.
I built the relieves needed and then added the bitmap files I had created to generate the textures. Its as easy as importing the files, entering in a numeric value and hitting enter. By the time the streetcar was done on the router another tool-pathed file of the sign was ready to start.
While this portion of the sign was running I started in on assembly of the streetcar.
I’ll post pictures of that progress next time…
