Our CNC Machines
Before we tell you about our CNC Machines, you should probably know what CNC means ... The term "CNC" is simply an abbreviation for "Computerized Numerical Control". CNC refers to the computerized manufacturing process in which pre-programmed software and code control the precise movements of production equipment.
Why is it important to know what CNC means? ... It's important because this is what allows us to specifically control our designs and it's what ensures that the design project (the design that we input in to the software) will turn out looking exactly as you expect it to once it's finished being cut and/or engraved since the mechanical manufacturing of the design software and the CNC machines work together.
Now, on to the good stuff! ... We have two (small but mighty) CNC machines (shown below) that we use to create all of our unique and custom art designs with. With these mini CNC machines, we can easily personalize and/or customize any of your ideas to make very special and unique custom designs for you.
Once your project is designed and you've given us the approval to create it, your project will then be ready to be 'brought to life'. We'll do this by setting up the custom design in to the CNC software and running the materials you've chosen through the machine(s) using processes such as: laser cutting, laser engraving, laser etching, and/or vinyl cutting.
Our GlowForge Pro Laser Cutting, Engraving, and Etching Machine
Our GlowForge Pro Laser Cutting, Engraving, and Etching Machine is a small but mighty machine that enables us to create very large designs with the special pass-through feature by allowing us to cut, engrave, and/or etch designs on to an infinite length of material. So, even though our machine has a maximum width of 20", there is no limit to the length we can cut, engrave, or etch.
Our GlowForge Pro Laser Cutting, Engraving, and Etching Machine works well with many different types of materials, however, our current preference is to use it to cut, engrave, and etch our custom art designs on wood, acrylics, tile, paper, etc..
Our Cricut Explore Air 2 Vinyl Cutting Machine
Our Cricut Explore Air 2 Cutting Machine is so versatile that it expands our ability to create (cut and/or etch) our custom designs. The many options available are only limited by our imagination because it works well on many projects and with so many different types of materials. With that being said, however, our current preference is to use the Cricut Explore Air 2 to cut our custom art designs out of vinyl and then affix them to tiles, glass, or wood ... but, there truly is no limit to the kinds of unique and amazing designs that can be made with either of our CNC machines!
