Testimonial – Glass Etching Stencil Cutting

  Virtually every aspect of my experience with Graphtec and my FC8000 cutter has been a pleasurable experience. From the manual, the software, the plotter assembly, the quality of the manufacturing, the materials used and the technical support — I can highly recommend the Graphtec FC8000 to anyone considering purchasing a first class cutting plotter.

The FC8000 here cuts thick rubber resist for sandblasting art glass effortlessly with an amazing level of intricate detail. The FC8000 has opened up new levels of design possibilities here at the studio. I couldn’t be more pleased with the FC8000, the professionalism of their staff and Graphtec in general.

    A sample of my work includes this Victorian design converted to carved art glass using Adobe® Illustrator through the provided Cutting Master plug-in.

Hand cutting rubber resist was a painful and tedious task here prior to purchasing a FC8000. Formerly, it would take anywhere from two to seven hours to hand cut the resist per glass panel. Now, the focus has shifted to the design and execution of the carving.

The FC8000 has opened up entirely new possibilities in the genre of carved art glass.
