    Wifey challenged me to Model and cut out something in 3D on the CNC. She wanted a fat little bird. I preceded to model this little guy for way to long, I've never really modeled any organic shapes before, let alone programed 3D CAM to cut it out, so I had to learn a lot yesterday. Took me about 5 hours to learn all the tricks to get the CAM to work out, and a crazy 45 min on the machine. I love him! and so does she, so day well spent. Hope this inspirers inspires someone to learn something they don't know yet! Happy milling!

      It makes a funny noise when you rub your finger across it, Ashley has it at work and is using it as like a little stress ball lol didn’t see that coming

      Yeah it’s got me wanting to do more stuff like this to master the flip with register pins. That’s going to be the next video I think!
