Creating a Halvtone
After you’ve uploaded your desired picture from your computer or from the Internet in to our application, you can easily try out different resolutions, colors, and image section. When you’re done editing, you can save your work in your account or produce directly. Our Halvtone algorithm, based on an old printing screen technology, analyzes your picture and converts it into a halftone-design. The image is divided into a grid. Then the hole sizes are calculated based on the average brightness values in each grid cell. Our application always shows you a real-time preview of your Halvtone, according to your settings.
The production of a Halvtone
The resulting matrix of different sized dots is translated through our software into a machine control code (G-code). Your Halvtone is produced with a CNC milling machine. CNC machines (Computer Numerical Control) are machines that due to the use of modern control technology are capable of automatically producing parts with high accuracy even for complex shapes. The machine actuates the coordinates of three mutually perpendicular axes (X, Y, and Z) according to the registered information of the G code and mills the holes into the blank Halvtone.
This blank Halvtone consists of solid-colored MDF (medium density fiberboard). MDF is a wood fiber material which is prepared from feinstzerfasertem softwood. To create the two-tone Halvtone effect, the MDF board is fitted with a white or black coating and cut squarely in three different sizes in the connection. In addition, the edges of these wooden squares are polished and rounded.
After our machine has transformed a blank Halvtone into a Halvtone with your individual picture, it will be packaged in our workshop and sent to you using DHL. Of course, we will send you a shipping notification with a link to the tracking, so you always know where your Halvtone currently is.
