    Custom bedroom wall art panels created with PLA3D's ArtCAM models.

     

    Canadian interior design and architectural experts ASPEC are just one of our talented and creative clients. In 2013 they requested some original tree relief designs for specific panel dimensions.

    I put my drawing hat on and before I knew it I had myself 3 good looking trees to transform into vectors and then into a relief CAD model file. ASPEC took my CAD files and were able to carve it on their CNC machine and finish it for their customers. As you can see they did a great job and the design really holds up well in a bedroom setting. 
    Do you have a project in mind and need some custom patterns for your CNC router machine production? Or just have a question or comments, send me an EMAIL, I'd love to hear from you.

    ToolsToday's new video featuring PLA3D custom model

    ToolsToday just published a new video on YouTube featuring the production process of my CAD art piece, "Alien Deco". Check it out, it's got great information about what bits they used throughout the process for their CNC machine. I love the finishing colours they used, almost mimicing what I presented them on the screen, great work guys! I look forward to more collaborations with these folks...

    Isaac's Way Art Auction going on now!!

    Hopefully everyone's had a good taste of summer and have enjoyed the fresh air, BBQs and pools despite mother nature's vicious attacks (we just got our power after a 4 day urban camping thanks to Hurricane Arthur's aftershocks)

    On a marketing note I have a custom wood art piece I did for the city of Fredericton, New Brunswick in a silent art auction at local restaurant Isaac's Way. Originally designed as a 2D manhole cover design depicting popular heritage building silhouettes in the city. I took those initial designs and applied some bas relief elements with ArtCAM software and had it carved on a CNC machine by my good friends at Lithophane Custom Made. Stained and finished by yours truly.

    If you are in Fredericton, NB this summer check out Isaac's Way restaurant beside the lighthouse downtown (also depicted in my piece) and place your bid on this great Fredericton heritage art piece. Proceeds go to dance class charities.


    Have a great summer everyone and thanks for for visiting PLA3D.com,
    working on some new stuff for the upcoming season and yes, eventually a new free model for all you CNC woodworkers, stay tuned...
