We get calls from experts and novices alike and we treat each with courtesy and respect because even when you are good at what you do, it is likely quite different than what we do and we are here to help. We will take the time to listen carefully to your needs. Ultimately, it's simple, if we can help, we'll tell you. If not, we'll help pinpoint another possible source.
Most mold makers create one-piece molds, however we have the experience and skill to produce molds that are two or more sections. Our multipart molds fit together cleanly and barely leave seamlines if any in your finished casting.
Our mold making history is long and diverse. Have a look into our past. Although we do not make many of the large-scale molds any longer, we retain the knowledge and wisdom from how larger builds come together.
Some engineers will build a crane just to move a boulder. We love engineering too, but we take a very practical approach. We strive for simple, clean solutions and it often starts with smart 3D modeling and artwork generation.
Typically, thermoforming is used to make parts or packaging with soft rounded edges. There are many shops that can do that, but we have modified our equipment to allow us to create impressions with impressive detail and minimally tapered side walls.
3D printing is great, but even today, each machine has its limitations. We are not a print shop, but instead we use the technology as a steppingstone to help build meaningful prototypes.
We have a four CNC machines and use them everyday, but really, they are just another part of tool box to achieve a goal. CNC combined with other equipment is where the music really happens.
Over twenty years ago, we started as an art fabrication studio with traditional tools and skillsets. When you want something a programmer may struggle to make, we can go old school when needed.
Lasers can do amazing things, but in the hands of a talented operator, a precision cutting and engraving tool can become something much more. Did you know 3D contouring is possible with a laser?
