Product Line 2A - Small 3-D Printed Sculptures, Statues, Plaques and Signs
Our largest 3-D printer and a Statue it made
Welcome to our photo Gallery 2A where we show examples of our small (less than 10 inches) 3-D printed full relief, half-relief and bas-relief sculptures, statues, plaques, and signs, which we refer to as Product Line 2A. Like our other sign and plaque products, these can be artist-painted or plated with bronze, brass, aluminum or copper metals. They are elegant, beautiful, and add interest to any sign or plaque. These can be used as small indoor decorative statues, desktop or small wall plaques (up to 10 inches in diameter), or 3-D appliques on large signs or command/award boards,
These smaller products (less than 9 inches) differ from the 2.5-D and 3-D bas-relief plaques and signs in Galleries 1, 1A, 1B, and 2, by the following:
(1) 3-D Printing. They are 3-D printed, where material is slowly added and built up to create a plaque, sign, statue or sculpture as controlled by a computer 3-D model, instead of material being removed from a blank by carving by a 3-D CNC router to create the product. One of our 3-D printers is shown on the right.
(2) Materials. These products are made using PLA, a commonly used thermoplastic material, instead of High-Density-Urethane (HDU), which is used in Product Lines 1, 1A, 1B and 2. PLA is denser, tougher and stronger than HDU, so tiny details and thin protuberances can be made on 3-D models with low risk of breakage.

(3) Size. The size of products made with 3-D printing is limited to 8 inches x 6 inches x 10 inches, We therefore normally use 3-D printing for products smaller than 9 inches. We can make detailed 3-D plaques as small as 3 inches in diameter, but they are typically 4 inches to 9 inches in diameter.
Our larger signs and plaques which are carved in 3-D bas-relief or 2.5-D multi-level relief using our six 3-D CNC routers are shown in Galleries 1, 1A, 1B, 2 , 3, 6 and 7. Our carved HDU plaque and signs can be made up to 60 inches x 120 inches x 4 inches, and and even larger (up to 10 ft x 20 ft) by joining HDU sheets together.
(4) Sculptured Relief. 3-D printing can produce products that are 3-D full-relief sculptures (like statues, see section 1 in the Photo gallery below), or 3-D half-relief (50% relief) sculptures with undercuts (see Section 2 in the photo gallery below) , or 3-D bas-relief (10% to 20% relief), similar to carved 3-D bas-relief HDU plaques and signs (see Section 3 below). Our CNC routers can only carve 3-D bas-relief with no undercuts.
