alex's cnc dies part 1

Alex and I worked on some die prototypes for some metal dies that we will be making soon on the Taig CNC. He's going to use these to press out some forms in aluminum that will get pieced together to make a panel for the Fab/Meth course. I gave Alex a crash course in RhinoCAM one day last weekend and he's now up and running with generating toolpaths on his own. The mdf machined fine with no snags, so we're going to do one last mdf version to fine tune the toolpaths and then it's on to the real deal in al. Should be fun.
