Here is a cross section of a few of the methods we have used to develop simple metal items.
License Plate Topper
From CAD drawing provided by the customer (Proprietary items)
Packaging tape dispenser
This item began as an FNFAB design from scratch
LAMBORGHINI BADGE METAL ART
This project began as clip art then was developed into 'plasma friendly' wall art
1934 LaSalle dash reproduction reproduced using an obsolete part as a guide
Flame Frame. This project began as a drawing from the customer. We generated Auto CAD drawings, CNC ready clip art, and produced the item from 14 gage cold rolled steel. Finish item is 30 by 60 inches.
WISE MENTOR CAPITAL
This metal sign began as professional art work sent to us by a graphic artist
Specialized steel tab
Specially made to customers specifications
10 String Guitar Bridge
This item was developed from a drawing provided by the customer. Shown here raw and with black powder coat finish.
Porsche Key hanger
This item started as a photo of a Porsche emailed to us from a client
Safety Sync 36 by 36 inch sign
The sign began with drawings sent to us via email
Iron Psych Works
This metal sign was developed from a small letter head logo
Badge with Name wall art
This metal wall hanging started as a customer's basic drawing via regular old fashioned surface mail
The original sketch outlines the basic idea. In the proposed cut path drawing, black represents metal while white represents "air". Notice that every line in the cut path touches another line. Lines or lettering cannot 'float' in mid air so we had to modify the original sketch to make this a usable cut path.
Wheel Chair Foot Plate (Quickie GT)
This steel wheel chair foot plate began with only a cardboard template
Fire Fighter Emblem
These steel emblems began with clip art from our inventory of vector graphics in .dxf format
This metal art wall hanging began as a customer's drawing and basic idea of what they wanted the item to look like.
Skull and Cross Bones Emblem
This steel emblem began as a 'cut and paste' paper sample via FAX
resulting steel part:
The skull and cross bones seen here started as a similar image already posted on this web site. The customer printed then pasted paper cut outs into the configuration required. We scaled the image to meet the customer's needs then turned the image into a cut path and made a sample from 14ga steel.
Custom Metal Cover Plate
This metal cover plate came to us via email as a simple drawing
Replacement antique car grill
This came to us as a tracing of only one of the ribs of antique car grill and we fabricated an entire new grill from 14 gage steel.
8 ft tall metal art tree
This project started as a sketch provided by the customer. Here's the process:
Customer provides sketch of a large proposed tree
Sketch is re drawn by FNFAB in Auto CAD software
CAD Drawing is made into a 3 part puzzle for shipping purposes.
A cutting path is generated from the CAD drawing
This item was cut from 11 ga steel and powder coated textured rust color.
Negrete Family Coat of Arms
Picture 1 shows that this item began as a very small existing drawing. Original drawing is less than 2 inches square. Picture 2 shows the proposed refined drawing. Picture 3 shows the item turned into a 42 inch tall metal art item.
Firewall cover plate.
Notice the before and after photos of this 1967 Chevelle / El Camino fire wall. The customer provided a full size paper pattern. We turned it into a CAD drawing then cut out a 14 gage steel fire wall beauty plate.
