As some materials are tough to film due to their surface properties, I added a bit of dust to the acrylic to make sure the camera doesn’t lose focus during production.
As with everything else in our Shapes Library, we can cut these out of any material, any size for any application in any volume. That’s why there is no price as I don’t know what you wish to do with any specific shape.
Also, we can convert these shapes for a whole host of custom products from key chains to coasters, cutting boards to furniture. It’s completely up to you and your budget and volumes.
In this case, CNCROi.com laser engraved and cut some snakes, lizards, a squirrel and other reptiles and mammals. Don’t like these shapes? Send in YOURS or have us custom design one to your spec!
When it comes to custom acrylic, in this case 1/8th inch thick or 3 mm, it’s masked on both sides, this is a piece of scrap, hence not having a layer of protective plastic to prevent scratches and blemishes on the acrylic sheet.
There are a lot of things to keep in mind with custom acrylic shapes, such as these animals, such as what details need to be added or taken off to keep in budget and any kind of variation you’d want. For instance, you may want your own name or many names on each one for a fundraiser opportunity.
CNC lasers are awesome when it comes to plastics as the edge quality is flame polished right during production, an extra labor and time process is eliminated and this works great for huge quantities of small pieces even better!
If you are wondering as to the variety of acrylics available, there are so many that it’s best to just contact us with your color and opacity preference, we can then suggest what suits your project and budget.
As our shop is set-up for custom CNC production and not video and photography, some of these photos look a bit rough but that goes with the business. Some materials film incredibly well such as wood while others like acrylic, not so much.
Using these custom animal shapes as a base, they can become whatever permutation of your application that you want. We can make a series of them to show a walking movement or anything else you may want or need.
One thing to keep in mind regarding acrylic are that extremely fine details become less apparent the thicker the acrylic becomes, the reason being that there is more heat needed and generated which vaporizes a larger area of given material.
So if you want something incredibly precise, either go BIG in size or THIN in thickness and it will produce the optimal result.
There are a lot of tips and tricks with each material to produce the optimal result, which is why having an operator with extensive CNC experience in both the physical and digital world will help you greatly with getting the absolute best result for your application.
After CNC laser engraving all the fine details, it’s time to power-up the laser and go full-on to cut through this acrylic. We’ve done projects for customers in up to 3/4″ acrylic and can go even thicker, it depends on the application and the design.
With on-demand production, we can make any mix and match of any custom shape you want, they don’t all have to be the exact same shape nor does each shape need to be made from the same material. We work according to your requirements.
Cutting acrylic is also dangerous without the right equipment as it’s essentially solid oil being hit with energy that’s hotter than the Sun!
We invested in the best Austrian CNC laser money can buy and then spent even more on auxiliary equipment that allows us to SAFELY and EFFICIENTLY cut through even the thickest of acrylics or plastics.
We also have a dual-sourced wide-format industrial laser, which means we can also color change certain plastics permanently without burning them.
For all your custom acrylic cutting needs, CNCROi.com is here to help, send us your specs, drawings (rough on napkin or CAD) and we’ll make something awesome for you!
