    Tui bird profile for corten steel panel

    Hey guys,

    on the scrounge to see if anyone can help or point me in the right direction.

    I have a section of corten steel 5mm panel left over from my firepit, and wanted to have a large 1200mm High by 1100mm wide panel fitted into my new courtyard fence. Cheap enough to have it water cut IF I can provide the dxf formatted file...

    Thinking along the lines of a tui sitting on a kowhai tree branch but can't find anything, and the places we have tried can't help either. Most have cut out shapes rather than profile relief in a fixed panel.

    John

    Example of a kowhai branch.

    Tui. But if I just use that in reverse, it'll be a gaping hole in the fence.

    I wouldn't be opposed to even a bush scene with fantail, tui and kereru in a kowhai tree.

    draw what you want it to look like then get it cut on a plasma if you cut it that the inside first then reverse the cut direction you should get a gap of about 5 to 6mm between the inner and outer bits of plate then put them on a flat bench and put small welds around it to have solid with out line cut out.you can draw also draw extra lines to be cut at same time or else draw what you want cut out with a continuose line leaving we bits to hold it together have done things like that on a profile cutter just not as fancy.have done it where you drill a series of holes to start the cutter so you don't have run in when starting the cut so you can cut sections in loops so you have small bits left between cut outs.

    I've done heaps of these, but I normally do a Tui on a Flax branch out of copper. Just draw it copy to computer and put it on a stick, take to local printer and get them to enlarge to the required size.
