A laser-cut nameplate. Wow.

Skills used:

Rhinoceros CAD

Description:

A basic nameplate for my door. It contains a pretty standard name, email address, and phone number. It also has an amazingly realistic doge decal, as well as a QR code that links up to my gateway site.

It was created by making cuts into acrylic using a laser cutter in Lee Hall, Virginia Tech, then painting the entire thing in black paint, followed by using a razor blade to scrape the paint off the main panel, without removing it from the depressed cuts.

 

Pros:

    • Allows people to know where I live, as well as get a feel for what I do.
    • Lets everyone know I’m an engineer. It’s better to tell them that up front.
    • Lets everyone know I’m not the most formal of people. It’s also better to tell them that up front.

 

Cons:

    • Anyone who passes by has my email address and phone number.

 

Opportunities for improvement:

Some of my laser cuts were not as deep as they should have been, especially on the doge. In addition, the doge meme will go out of style.

 

Conclusion:

Interesting to see as you walk down the hallway, but not of any purpose other than that.
