It is always a joy to see how you use the designs I create. Many of the designs are intended for larger or more detailed custom projects, to give you the design components you need to create awesome gates, railing panels, signs and truly unique one-of-a-kind pieces for yourself or your clients. The custom designs and larger projects that we collaborate on are awesome because we get to see the designs evolve and take shape. Even though we don’t always get to see the finished design in person, the photographs that clients send us are a true blessing.
Having said that many of the designs in the product catalogue were designed to be cut as stand-alone smaller pieces, for example the welcome signs, coat racks and wall art, and can be used for a product line or a one-off piece. It always inspires me to see what you do with the designs because you guys have so much raw talent. If you have a photo of a piece you created using one of our products and you would like to share with us or the Facebook Group: CNC Metal Art DXF files and Designs please consider uploading it here.
Here are a couple of examples of some smaller projects that were fabricated and finished by one of our good clients, Gary from Arizona along with a few words that he wrote:
“I thought I would share the finished project with you. I framed and powder coated each panel and hung it at my cabin in the White Mountains of Arizona. I used a rough sawn red oak for the background. It looks great and your designs are beautiful and easy to work with. I'm already getting lots of great comments about them.”
“I will have the Soaring Eagle and Welcome pieces completed and mounted next month. Wait until you see the soaring eagle. I braised brass on the talons and beak! Awesome! The burnishing on the feathers is beautiful but the pictures don't do it justice. As soon as the cabin is stained, I will mount it and send a picture.
This is your “Welcome” sign in my front yard. It will be mounted on the cabin next month. I used brass in the background and created a 3-D effect by mounting additional trees in front of the main piece. I’m pretty happy with it and wanted to share it.”
"This is one of yours too. I'm making a mailbox topper for it now."
We would love for you to use our cut ready designs to make your projects stand out from the crowd. Whatever you create will be unique, distinguished and exclusive! We have found that due to the nature of the fabrication and finishing process used in metal art production, our products seldom come out looking identical, even if the same design is used. This gives the pieces you create a sense of individuality that just cannot be replicated by the mass production process. You have the flexibility to add your own input into the designs, you can add or resize components or cut out just the parts you want to use. The possibilities are endless, you could create three dimensional pieces or include translucent acrylic, unique metal or different wood backgrounds. You could even add lighting or back-lighting effects that can enhance and completely change the look and feel of the piece.

Requesting Custom DXF Files for Metal Art Designs:
Our metal-art gallery showcases some of the custom projects we have designed that our clients have fabricated and we have photographed or they have sent us photographs. We have designed everything from elaborate double entry gates, railing panels, privacy panels and signs to custom artwork. No job is too small, we have also designed or converted to vector format all sorts of smaller projects, including: welcome signs, coat, mug and key racks, tack racks, vent covers, beam plates, strike plates, dead bolt latch plates, switch plates, shelf brackets, elaborate picket railing designs, fireplace screens and door sets, fire-pit rings, weathervanes, inserts for custom benches, window insets and lighting designs.
The graphics below depict marsh scene privacy panels that were designed for a client of ours in California, using silhouette elements (loons, sandhill cranes, ducks, pelicans and cattails) chosen from our product catalogue. The panels are 10' long by two' high. The DXF files were created using the individual vector art components, scaled to fill out a 30' scene area.
The designs were laser cut from the DXF files by Bay Area Metal Fabrication LLC, in Benicia, CA. The client then added the two-tone blue, translucent, acrylic background, had the panels powder coated and inlaid them in the wood frame.
"We are delighted with your work and your turn around time! We enjoyed working with you and your responsiveness, this is the finished look. Thank you! It is getting lots of compliments. Good job!" - Marek, Newark, CA
