Beaver Plaques uses a web interface to collect customer preferences by presenting options. The customer is the best person to choose the plaques shape, plaque background, plaque border and the text they would like to see on the address plaque. Although the shape, border and background can be predesigned, the text and logo have to be added afterwards. This requires that the information provided by the customer be collated and used to produce a geometric (CAD) model of the address or sports plaque. The model of the plaque reflects the customers liking and preferences and is used to produce a 3D view. The customer can visualize the address/sports plaque and improve it or place an order to manufacture it.
Once the customer place an order to manufacture the address or sports plaque, their custom design is used to produce a tool path for machining the plaque. The tool path is produced automatically and is guaranteed to be gouge free. The tool path is used in a CNC wood router to machine the plaque.
Our goal is to do all the Engineering upfront - a customer's order requires little or no operator assistance.
Step 2: A BeaverPlaques server, running proprietary design algorithms, instantly sends a full 3D preview of the custom sign back to the designer for approval
Step 4: The design is processed by proprietary manufacturing algorithms to generate an automated manufacturing routine.
