EFI VUTEk GS3250 LX uv curing inkjet printer, printing Hexalarious II on dibond composite aluminum panel.
Printed on a rigid substrate, dibond composite aluminum panel, it will next be cut-out on a cnc router. All the white areas will be cut away. Aluminum stand-offs will be put behind to hang and float off a wall.
Printing on rigid substrates opens up a new avenue of exploration in my work by allowing my geometric constructs to expand beyond the confines of square and rectangular formats with use of a Computer Numerical Control (CNC) Router that can cut the substrate panel to my specifications.
I want to thank Kim and Scott and the rest of the team at Vista Color Imaging. They have been great to work with, taking extra care to ensure a great final print. The video was provided by Vista Color Imaging.
