What is an HDU Sign?

Before moving on to the different HDU cut styles, let’s quickly look at what HDU stands for. HDU stands for high-density urethane, which is a rigid high density polyurethane foam. HDU is specifically created for 3D routed signs, dimensional letters and prototypes in general. If you want to learn more about HDU Dimensional letters, click here. Due to its extremely tight cell structure, HDU is perfect for machine routing and is durable to withstand the elements. Therefore it’s a suitable material for both indoor as well as outdoor signs. HDU is available in different densities, thicknesses and sizes, making it a versatile solution for custom signs.  

HDU Cut Styles

Smooth Background

A smooth background is the most popular option for HDU routed signs. We’ll basically rout away the excess of the sign, making the ‘leftovers’ into dimensional letters. It’s more durable then dimensional letters, as it’s produced out of one piece.

Create a subtle layer of extra dimension with a V-carved HDU routed sign. This HDU Cut Style is the action of carving with a v-shaped bit to generate designs with varied width. The unique shape of v-bits create carves that are narrow at the deepest part of the carve and wider at the top of the material.
