MTSO, each panel was done as its own profile, all the fonts had to be redone and changed into a true type fonts because the designer wanted sharp corners and the out line of the county was taken off a bit map. With the panels spaced 1 3/4", lots of vector lines and node editing. (total time in Aspire was approx 16 hours) sure there are many members that could cut that time in half.
Rich O, I was commissioned to carve the images onto the panels, the contractor supplied all the material, and hung the panels on the wall. I did sent a email with the same question you ask, I will let you know when he apply s back.
