We use a 3 Axis CNC cutting machine, which has a maximum routing area of 2400mm x 1220mm x 200mm, it's highly versatile, and allows us to cut a wide range of sheet materials.
See below for different cutting strategies and more information on services.
Cutting Definitions: 2D, 2.5D, 3D
A 2D object in the CNC Routing world actually has 3 dimensions, as it is cutting into a piece of 3D material. It can be confusing, as 2D will make a 3D cut in an object. The best way I can describe 2D cutting is that the material is cut at a constant depth from one side (i.e. the top).
A 2.5D object is as above but can have variable depth, but cut from one side.
A 3D object is cut from all sides and usually requires a much more complex procedure to achieve the desired results.
A selection of usable materials include, MDF, Chipboard, Plywood, Plastics, Acrylic, Polycarbonate, Perspex, Soft Wood, Hard Wood, Veneered Boards, Foam, Polystyrene, Valchromat, Specialist Materials e.g. Corian, Resins, and many others.
