Is there a laser at work in your shop?

A laser engraver/cutter and a CNC machine play together very well. One of the ways we take advantage of this is on wayfinding and informational sign systems that we make using solid surface material, like DuPont Corian, as the substrate. Created and marketed as a countertop material, solid surface materials also make a great sign substrate.
Solid surface material holds up great indoors or out. It comes in a variety of colors and several thicknesses. It’s easy to cut and rout, and it engraves well on the laser.
