Bailey’s Project: Day 7 – part 1

OK Its Friday – we are installing on Sunday – St. Patrick’s Day is Monday. Hmm. Pressure is on!!!!!! Brian has been in the paint shop for days – not sure if he’s seen daylight.  But it’s payin’ off! After all the priming Brian started mixing the paints and spraying

Captain America

This was a nice little challenge. We were hired to make a sign for the new Captain America film which will hang in the Disney Store in Times Square. The sign has to be lightweight, clean and look high end. The graphics supplied were really cool so we have a lot of work to do to match it. I started with designing the “Captain America” letters.  I thought it would look great to do it in two parts to match the logo  - the outside letter will be cut out of 1″ 15lb Precision Board HDU and painted silver and the inside beveled plate will be cut out of 1/4″ PVC and we’ll print the blue face and highlights to it on our Oce’ 350XT Flatbed Printer.    Stage 1 Complete! Now we have to come up with the sign backer

Bailey’s Project: Day 4

It’s day four and we are making great progress – the sign is REALLY taking shape.  All the precision board cuts are done and the letters are all completed as well. Brian is hard at work fabricating standoffs, welding, sculpting and assembly. Once the sign is put together and the parts sculpted just right he’ll take it all apart to begin priming. We cut the “smokehouse” letters out of 1/2″ black PVC.  And the larger 3D Cut “Bailey’s” out of 1″ thick 15# Precision Board HDU.

Bailey’s Project: Day 3

 Wow! Day 3 flew by with lots of progress on our Bailey’s project. The shop is buzzing with activity. We have installs going out the door, the MultiCam 3000 CNC is cranking out dimensional pieces, all of the printers are running with jobs ranging from tractor trailer wraps to art prints to murals and signs, and…. the phone is ringing off the hook!!!!  We are busy. So even with all of this going on we are focused on the Bailey’s deadline, and the pint of Guinness that awaits us at the end of the project. The sign is hanging in the workshop and Brian has finished all the welding on the grills AND they are all painted.

Bailey’s Project: Day 2

Day two is underway! We’ve made some great progress in all areas. Brian’s been hard at work welding up the grill.  It looks incredible and will really make this sign feel authentic. I’ve been programming the face and ribbons and working out the depth of the overall sign. In Enroute I’ve programmed the basic shape of the ribbon with the text – once I’ve cut it out of Precision Board HDU Brian will do some hand sculpting to remove the “machine cut” look.

3D HDU Sign Letters

We recently created a sign for a client. We liked the design so much so we decided to make two and keep one for ourselves. It is a very simple sign but it will look good in the shop. We designed our sign in Enroute Pro.  We’ll be cutting it out of 2″ 15lb Precision Board HDU on our MultiCAM 3000 Router. The design is a wood grain over a dimensional letter and we threw in some big rivets for fun. The first thing we was to cut the letters face down and to pocket out room in the back for LED’s (in case we want to add them later).  We also added holes for the wall mount studs.  We then flipped the letters and re registered them on the table to begin cutting the 3D face

HDU Letters – KENZO Window Display

This was a quick turnaround job – 1 day start to finish  - the client needed large foam letters and would be hanging them with fishing wire in a window display. The dimensions of the letters are 15″ high by 8″ deep. So we cut the letters in two layers from 4″ 10lb Precision Board HDU. Its lightweight and real easy to work with

Having a vivid imagination in the design world is an asset, but being able to realistically apply it in the real world is a learned skill. Within the Department of Architectural Technology at the New York City College of Technology (CUNY) , the Introduction to Computation and Fabrication course aims to teach students introductory CNC techniques,..
