In the world of custom fabrication, the marriage of innovative design and high-quality materials can produce awe-inspiring creations that captivate the eye and stir the soul. Profile Laser, a leading laser cutting and fabrication company based in Portland, Oregon, recently took on a challenge that showcased its ingenuity and craftsmanship. The task at hand? Bringing to life an idea for a multi-color flashing custom LED decor sign with the enchanting words “Razzle Dazzle” shimmering on a custom-made brass faceplate.
The story of this masterpiece began when a creative customer approached Profile Laser with a concept that required intricate craftsmanship. The vision was clear – a sign that embraced vibrant multicolored lights, set against a captivating geometric pattern and enclosed within a custom brass frame.
Profile Laser’s talented programmer and designer embarked on the journey to turn this vision into reality. The first step was to carefully select the components based on the design parameters and the intended use of the sign. Once the components were received, precise measurements were taken to determine the required volume for accommodating them seamlessly within the design.
Profile Laser employed ¼” Medium-Density Fibreboard (MDF) to create the sign’s structure. The team skillfully cut and stacked the MDF to form two separate light boxes – one for the internal text and another for the external design. This meticulous process ensured that the illumination would be even and captivating.
True artistry came into play when crafting the front face of the sign. The background featured an intricate geometric pattern that added depth and visual appeal. The words “Razzle Dazzle” were showcased in a playful font, with an offset border between the text and the background art, enhancing the sign’s overall charm.
For the mesmerizing illumination, Profile Laser turned to an SP108E wifi-LED controller – a powerful yet cost-effective solution capable of addressing 300 individual LEDs. To achieve high-density lighting and precise control, WS2812b 144 pixel/meter LED strips were selected, ensuring each pixel could be individually addressed.
Running on 5v, the LED system was powered by an internal lithium-ion battery. To maintain consistent brightness throughout the battery life, a stable 5v step-up system was integrated. This meticulous planning allowed the LEDs to shine at full power until the last drop of battery power was utilized.
Profile Laser’s team understands that precision in electronic installations is paramount. Before the final assembly, a dry test was conducted outside the sign to ensure the electronics functioned flawlessly. This step not only guarantees a seamless installation but also ensures the longevity and reliability of the product.
To ensure the sign exuded a professional and sturdy feel, Profile Laser emphasized rigidity between all the layers of the design. Despite the precision of high-quality equipment, the human touch was essential in achieving the perfect finishing touches. The team meticulously hand-finished each detail to achieve a polished and refined product.
The result of Profile Laser’s dedication and expertise was nothing short of spectacular. The “Razzle Dazzle” LED home decor sign stood as a mesmerizing testament to the company’s craftsmanship. The multicolored lights danced behind the frosted acrylic, creating an enchanting display of radiance that brought the words “Razzle Dazzle” to life in the most magical way.
