Can a CNC router remove paint in layers on wood signs?
Hello, I'm VERY new to CNC routing. I do not have a machine of my own yet as I am trying to get as much info about them as I can before I decide to buy one. Right now I have a vinyl cutter and like to make painted wood signs with words and designs on them. Usually I'll paint the entire sign with whatever color I want the words and/or design to be, then I'll lay the vinyl design onto that and paint what color I want the sign to be after this. Once this is done I just remove the vinyl and have my sign all finished. However, this can take some time and sometimes ends up a little sloppy.
Now lets say I paint a piece of wood black and then paint white on top of that. Would a CNC router be capable of removing the top layer of white and reveal the black or would it just remove both layers of paint? I'm just trying to find a quicker way of making these and the fancier looking fonts can sometimes be a pain to use with vinyl.
