Are there Metallic Artistic Applications for CNC

Postby Breathe » Sat May 02, 2015 7:30 pm

Are there metallic artistic applications for cnc machines? I have seen some amazing woodwork over here and I was wondering if the same is possible for metals. I can imagine how hard it is to mill iron or some other metal in the same manner that wood is milled. Of course, metals have a potential to last longer but they can be hard to engrave.

Just ranting and raving.

That tarnished look could do with some silver coating...

I agree on _Twain_'s post. Most of the products made from CNC need some excellent finishing if they are to fetch twice the price.

Some stats give the percentages of using NC's for engraving at around 40percent.

For me that piece of work looks good enough to take home. That is with or without the tarnish..

Mr Marksman311, you said that the above work is done using a special metal engraver. I would love to Know that engraver. Mind showing us one here or at least giving us a name?
