Designing and Fabricating Our New Signs

It has been a goal of mine to adorn the lab with custom signs made using our own fabrication tools. Well, this fall, Bob and I finally made some time to get these signs done with the help of some of our students.

We designed the signs using Adobe Illustrator and Corel Draw. We then used the vector graphic files to cut the various layers of the signs out on the Plasma Cam and the laser cutter. It was impressive just how quickly we were able to fabricate all the signs (one on the front door which was the most complex sign, and then eight signs used inside the lab for identifying the different workspaces).

We think the signs really look great, and we have now been approached several times to help make signs for other areas around the school.
