Large-format acrylic figures | Laser cutting
Life-size figures from Perspex® for the Lüneburg Museum
We used cast 15-mm thick acrylic glass for producing the figures. As some of the figures were to be over 2 m high, we used the XL-1600 or rather XL-3200 laser systems to cut them. The large processing areas of these cutters meant the figures could be cut in one piece from the acrylic sheets. One important detail of the finished figures is their smooth edges – after all they are intended to present the exhibits to the visitors. So the high-quality gloss effect of the crystal clear cut edges of the acrylic is, of course, important for the museum.
