I went to see my sponsor yesterday, CNC Polystyrene, to see how they were getting on with the milling of my sculpture.
What do you want first, the good news or the bad news?
Good news is, half the figure is cut and it looks great!
Bad news is, the CNC cutter died while milling the second half and the robot repair men don’t want to come before Wednesday next week to mend the system. This is substantially going to delay the whole process, as the metal structure has to go in there as well. I’m loosing a week really.
Well, I just have to be extremely organised and hard working for the subsequent steps.
Another good news: I found a second sponsor. The Company Notcutt, in Ripley, is so kind to provide a substantial part of the Jesmonite Products i’m going to use to put onto the base shape. I can’t wait to get there, I love that process. Thank you very much, Andrew!
