Back in April I created the first routing files for the Skallywag Bay. Now at last it is time to fire up the MultiCam and get going on these projects. Todays sign was for Cookie’s Galley, the food establishment for the park. It will feature Cookie of course the Gruffle cook
Once the MultiCam had done it’s work it was time to assemble the pieces over the welded frame. I first used the air house to blow off the dust from the Precision Board. I used PB Bond 240 glue a one part product that is activated with water moisture. It’s made by the folks at Coastal Enterprises, the same people who make Precision Board
After creating the lettering and tweaking it to my satisfaction it was on to making the reliefs. I first opened my driftwood bitmap from the TEXTURE MAGIC COLLECTION . In EnRoute the imported bitmap opens as defined by the plate. I then stretched it out to make the shape I desired
We are now full blast into the build of the Skallywag Bay Adventure Park for Trinidad. We’ll be busy for the better part of a year in our studio before heading down to the Caribbean Island for the installation of all the pieces. It is going to be both challenging and exciting every step of the way. Because the project is in many ways similar to the one recently completed, Cultus Lake Adventure Park, we will be building on our successes there and hopefully kicking things up one more notch in the process
We are down to the final details on the house project. Through the construction we did over 200 routing files and created thousands of pieces. Now we are down to the last few at last.
If I were asked for the single most reason for our success I would have say our samples. Samples alone weren’t the reason but they play a very important, I would say critical role. Samples do many things for us. First they provide an opportunity for us to learn new things. Back when we got our MultiCam and EnRoute software I could do little more than open the program or turn on the router
The entire plan for the large project in Trinidad is now approved. There will undoubtably some small changes and revisions as we go but the final plans are now being engineered. It was a long design process, with nine versions of the master plan drawn and considered before things were settled. Attractions and rides were changed and moved through the process and many things changed size along the way. The plan as accepted includes a train ride, bumper boats, a wild adventure golf, a climbing wall and daring free fall jump, a kids play area, a wave swing ride, a pendulum ride, a spinning drop ride and a spinning coaster.
We’ve kept the MultiCam busy of late with the fancy house trim around the front and back doors. With the trim install the front door became much more welcoming. The patio door and posts also got the full trim treatment That leaves only the big front window. -dan
