After the opening of our new office in Lexington, KY, Xometry’s very own Doug Clarke wanted to celebrate and find a creative way set the tone for visitors as they entered the office. With the help of a waterjet and material offerings from Xometry, Doug designed a beautiful sheet metal Xometry sign for the office entrance. Doug built the new sign using a combination of aluminum, MDF wood, and epoxy resin. After finalizing the design, Doug waterjet cut 3 different facades for the sign out of aluminum. He then used a CNC router to cut out the structural backing from the MDF board. After the aluminum and MDF pieces were combined, the characters were filled with epoxy resin matching the signature Xometry blue colors to bring it all together and complete the look. The finished product is a beautiful sign that we are proud to display to our employees and visitors at the front entrance of our Lexington office!
