RedArt Team Member : Adam the Web Guy

Earlier this year we needed to revamp the RedArt Technologies website. Knowing that investing in the right person with strong skills who enjoys doing websites was important. Finding someone that loved the CNC PRO was huge. We are lucky to have met Adam Burner.

Adam currently works for a security software company as well as being a website designer. He has many clients from running sports companies, private organizations as well as tech companies However, there was a time Adam once laid floor tile. Even though he loves tech, there is still a very hands on drive Adam has which drew him to the CNC PRO last fall. As fate will have it, Adam is now the website design/manager for the RedArt Technology website AND a proud owner of the CNC PRO.

Best part is, Adam is a natural and he picked up engraving extremely quickly. Adam has not only learned the software (no surprise there) but also listening to the CNC PRO as it is engraving to hear for adjustments he might make during an engraving session. He found with some designs, when the larger areas need to be engraved out to speed up the machine to improve the look of the bigger spaces. This works as it helps soften the engraving tracks.

Adam is enjoying engraving on concrete and wood. Lately he is enjoying making signs for around the home as well as personalized gifts. Working in the Tech industry, he has a knack for swag people would want in terms of computer gaming and movies. He says he learned a few ‘hacks” that has made his engraving better. One of which was to use a sander after you engrave to ensure the surface is smooth and clean. He likes to do paint in some of the things he engraves to add color.

Tip: When working with wood, you can save money going to a paint department and look for steeply discounted paint samples returned. The store wants to unload them super cheap.

RedArt Technologies is super proud of Adam. It shows that everyone from founder to web guy that we are very invested into the CNC PRO. This machine gets a lot of interest because it deserves it. It is easy to get started and the passion Henry (founder) has is contagious to us all.

 

After all… how could you not love our founder?

Open House and the CNC PRO

It is always great watching a company grow. It is even better when you get to be a part of their grand opening celebration to an expanded space. Congratulations to Select Surface Solutions for their growing success.

We want to welcome them as the newest members of the RedArt Technologies family as the premier South East Distributor of the CNC PRO.

Let’s talk about this great grand opening we got to experience. First, I want to mention the history of the Select Surface Solutions company. Located in Orlando Florida, they are a talented group of people that love what they do. They offer concrete supplies for restoring, resurfacing and sealing concrete driveways, sidewalks, foundations, walls, and commercial floors.

The opportunity to show what the CNC PRO can do live is always great. To discover new limits is even better. Once at the show, Henry (owner of RedArt Technologies) found out what Christi (owner of Select Surface Solutions) needed a project done; Engraving the company logo out of acrylic. What was challenging was to make this a success he needed to create a mold.

Henry used a 1/8 tin acrylic bit and cut out the Select Surface Solutions logo. It was cut out of 1/4 blue acrylic and then he cut a 3-foot diameter clear acrylic border.

Then Henry was able to take that mold and he also made a concrete sign. The team has plenty of experience with using molds for concrete. One thing that was discovered was how easy it was to use the CNC PRO to cut out molds to the exact specifications needed, which is not easy to do. They used a release agent along the shape, poured the concrete and waited for it to cure. Within 24 hours that sign was ready and is now hanging out in front of the building.

The open house celebration was a big success. Henry was able to demonstrate the CNC PRO on multiple surfaces in multiple applications.  In addition, he got to see some training in decorative concrete and meet some other distributors in decorative concrete products.

Select Surface Solutions is the first official distributor of the CNC PRO. They will be servicing the lower south east area from Georgia to Louisiana. We look forward to watching this company grow.

If you are in Orlando Florida, you should stop in and say hi.
