Cut Shapes and Flatbed Printing

Odd shape and size signs
Medallion cut from Sintra

Here’s another capability we have added with our flatbed printer– special cut shapes. In this case we printed both sides of  a scalloped edge circular shape, but we can do just about any shape. Anything that can be cut from a 4×8 sheet of material can be done. We need a digital file of the outline.

We use a digital router table to cut the material- usually 1/8 or 1/4″  Sintra- and then print with our UV curable flatbed machine.
In this case we did a very short run of three peices, but the process is economical up into the hundreds.
