Cut, grind weld... repeat

We’ve got a great start on the main sign for the Hazelnut Inn. The 3D graphic is a hazelnut tree of course. Fabricating the tree meant cutting and welding many hundreds of leaves for the crown. It’s a big job which is made exponentially easier and faster with our MultiCam CNC plasma cutter. I designed the leaves on my computer using EnRoute software, duplicated it enough times to fill a 4’ x 8’ sheet of steel and then let the plasma cutter do it’s work automatically. We’ll repeat the process a whole lot of times to get enough leaves for the job. They need only a little grinding with a sanding disk to make them ready to weld to the top of the tree. Welding the leaves on is taking the longest but we are making quick progress! The double sided sign is going to be a beauty!
