Customer Focus - Matthias Haase

It's always nice to hear from customers that are using projects to create a finished piece to celebrate a special event.  Matthias Haase used the Local Heros - Firefighter No.1  to create the two projects highlighted in this post.  The first is a wall plaque for a graduating class from a firefighting school and the second is a sign for a shop.  Both use the same layout but have finished bits that are unique to each piece.

Finished wall plaque.

"This shield is a Memorial Gift from the members of a Fire Brigade Course that’s started on 15 August 2016 and ended on 19 August 2016"

"For the Fire and Rescue School in Celle (Lower Saxony) Germany"

What a great gift and using the photo in the center is a very nice touch.

"Software I used is Aspire

When finishing his second project he used a very interesting way to get the gold into the v-carved text.

"I used a CNC Machine called GP10050 from this small Factory"

Looks like he ran his roughing pass and then painted the letters gold.  After the paint dried he ran the finishing pass to remove of the allowance material left from the roughing and also removing the extra paint.  The end result is very nice and makes the painting look very accurate and nice.

Great work Matthias!
