  • Infill process and limits

    Hi,

     

    How does your infill process actually work? It looks like a paint fill by plotter pen?

     

    If I have one engraved area with two different infill colors, do I need some border/separation between them (i.e. draw them as two shapes right next to each other) or is overlap okay?

     

    How large an area can you infill? If I wanted a background color different than your anodization offerings and if I infill the whole piece, what limits are there?

    Hi Ken,

    The machining of the panels is highly automated but the infill process is all done by hand.

    Separation between areas with different infill colors is required. We recommend .2mm to .5mm (.008" to .02")

    The max. area for infill depends on the design of the engraving objects. However, the infill process is not meant to be used for backgrounds. If you can't find the color of your choice in our material selection, you can provide already painted, powder coated, or anodized material to us for machining.
