I am really happy to have my monkey containers on Monkey Edge as a Monkey Edge exclusive

After this you dont know how it is really going to look until it is cut into metal so I cut many prototype faces, each time making refinements and revisions until a final design was reached:

I then opened that with CAD/CAM software and built each line and arc of the face manually using the RasterVect version as a rough guide:

This drawing then needs to be refined and converted into dimensional coordinates to tell the machine where to go when engraving so the next step was to import the drawing into RasterVect and get some DXF lines as a starting point for the build:

THE STORY OF THE DESIGN:

THE ORIGINAL MONKEY EDGE LOGO

MONKEY EDGE LOGO TITANIUM CONTAINERS

THE BLUE LINES WILL BE SAVED AS A DXF FILE

I like designing, prototyping and refining a product much more than just making parts so I was very excited when I secured permission from Brady at Monkey Edge to develop my own unique version of his monkey logo for my products. It was quite a challenge to come up with a logo that looked good, retained the elements of the original artwork but brought my style into the mix. It also had to be a design that used a constant line width so I could cut it into the surface with a single ball end mill. The life of a face is in the eyes and these were especially difficult but after many drawings I finall I finally came up with this:
