Juan
It looks Great. I didn't know your machine was long enough to create that large of a note.
Did you index the cut and slide it through your router in stages?
How much did you overlap the too-paths for each index?
Good Job!
It is what it is!
Have a great day.

Hi HANNAH024

Thank You very much.

The F was cut in a probotix meteor machine.
I took the design and divided in parts that fit 25 x 48 and one piece was shorter 23 x 48. A 4x8 sheet divided in four.
Didn´t overlap them just cut the exact size and glued them by the edges.
Using a small bit 1/64 help me to keep parts super accurated by the time they where in place and then using some acrylic cement in the gap line and then some pvc strip in the bak of the piece make the trick.
Im going to post some pictures so You can see better than I can explained how was done easier because of my english.
Since the material was expanded pvc 1/4 inch. Decided to make some internal pieces to give the piece rigidity.
The base was 3/4 inch mdf to help the piece stay in place.
The holes where drilled since LED strip light where supposed to use instead of light bulbs.
Make the pattern in a vinil cutter to help spot the holes where to be drilled.


Thank You

And it was for a tv commercial and the shot was not for a long period.

For the edges was used PVC 1mm tickness so it bends kind of easy and can be held using acrylic cement either.
