Reverse Graffiti

Text and images were imported from Photoshop into Partworks for editing in preparation to be cut on the shopbot .  The images had to adjusted slightly to ensure that all parts of the stencil would remain attached to the main body.  The font used in the text of the graffiti was chosen with this in mind too.

Using 8' x 4' sheets of 9mm builders Plywood the Shopbot carved the stencil taking three passes for each letter.
