CNC Plasma Cutting and Metal Art
Blacksmiths and Metal forgers were the forerunners of Metal Art, long before Plasma and the Arc were invented. In this three part series, Dick will take you from the beginning, before the CNC machine was even a thought in someone’s mind, through the steps of working with one of the most modern, technical, metal cutting processes. In order to know where something is going, it is important to know where it came from. By watching this series from the beginning, to the end, the viewer will not only have a strong foundation for cutting out metal with a CNC machine, but you will have been encouraged with ideas, that will generate a flowing of the creative juices, in any aspiring metal artist. Dick will share his experiences, of learning about the CNC machine and he will also share tips with you on how to set up a small shop, a plasma table cutting room and a very effective downdraft ventilation system. He will also show how he has created his own clip art and made some commissioned metal art that has sold for hundreds of dollars. The series ends with Dick designing and cutting out metal art and showing how he finishes most of his work. Dick’s technique is simple, creative, effective and prosperous. This is a video DVD series that is a must to watch, for anyone who is interested in working with a CNC Plasma Cutting Machine.

This DVD was made for those who have questions about purchasing a CNC Plasma Cutting Machine, those who are new to having one, those who are undecided and confused as to whether or not it will be beneficial for what they need and those who want to become more comfortable with using the one they have. The information in this DVD is very easy to understand and designed to serve as a foundation to the more advanced Part-2 in this series. This series is especially meant for the artist, who wants to grow into metal art, but does not have a metal background and for the metal artist (regardless of experience) who is now doing everything by hand and would rather spend more time creating and less time in repeating their action.
This DVD is the second in a series of instructional lessons, for someone who wants to learn more about the CNC Plasma Cutting Machine. Owning a CNC Plasma Cutting Machine is not the answer to doing wonderful work. The machine is not magic. Impressive and amazing, but not magic. The more the operator knows about and understands the machine, the better and easier it is to work with. I learned the hard way and I am trying to save the viewer the years of mistakes and frustration I had and help speed up the process in growing in metal art and metal fabricating. The information in this DVD is easy to understand and designed to serve as a learning tool for the serious metal enthusiast. This DVD goes through all of the steps necessary to prepare for cutting out your metal.
This DVD is the third and final in a series of instructional lessons, for someone who wants to learn more about the CNC Plasma Cutting Machine. Part-3 of the series is all about Design and Metal Cutting. You will learn to make metal objects from scanned images, work with Nodes, use Badges, Array, Nesting and work with multiple layouts for cutting. This Instructional DVD will look extensively at using nodes and how to arrange and work with the nodes to correct or change an image while in CAD. Nodes are to the metal artist, what a brush and paint are to an artist who paints pictures. The more you understand the tools you have to work with, the more you will be able to utilize the advantages of the CNC Plasma Cutting Machine. The information in this DVD will take some concentration. It is designed to serve as a learning tool for the advanced metal enthusiast. If you have watched Part-1 and Part-2 of this series, you will have no trouble with the lessons on this DVD. This DVD goes through many of the procedures necessary for preparing your work to be cut out and to be able to change things that need to be corrected, without having to do away with the idea you had. It ends with a lesson in finishing.
