CNC machine art work for exterior

I am looking to have a piece of aluminum cut into art work. This would be round and cover a hole from an old antenna on my 1960 airstream. I would like to have it in a 3D format. A round patch with an cut out piece of art attached to the patch. I saw a few trailers with these when I was checking out some Vintage trailers. Where can I get this work done and how much would it cost?

I would expect a few hundred dollars on up, for a, one of, 3D engraving. It would not cost you much more to have 100 of them made as one. There maybe some folks online that will do it but I expect a local machine shop could do it. If you had a 3D model of the part it would lower your costs considerably. Look in the phone book for CNC machining or CNC engraving. First thing is you need a design. Then you need a 3D model of that design. Then it has to be converted to something that a CNC mill can understand.

I am bringing this back to the portal. I want to put an artistic patch over the old antenna hole for my 1960 airstream. I may just go buy a wind chime that has metal animals for chimes and take one and rivet it to a round aluminum patch. Any suggestions?
