A laser-cut nameplate. Wow.



Skills used:

Rhinoceros CAD


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.



    • 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.



    • 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.



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