Our on site CNC machining facility enables us to cut large forms and create smooth lines, with a superior level of accuracy. The flexibility of CNC machining can be used in a huge range of projects for our clients, or we can offer our CNC services for others managing a physical build project. Our comprehensive CAD suite and experienced technicians enable us to work from supplied 3D files, or build up drawings from hand-drawn sketches and designer’s notes.
We can quickly cut sheet materials and shapes too big for our laser cutters, such as acrylic, polycarbonate, MDF and plywood. Large structures can be broken down and netted into panels and interlocking ribbed shapes to be quickly assembled and bonded together, and skinned with a thinner, flexible sheet material.
Contoured architectural baseboards can be cut from dense foam materials and hand-finished. A 3D CNC cutting file can be extrapolated from ordnance survey plans, incorporating levelled-off areas and datum sections for building footprints cut into the landforms. Making architectural models this way can accurately illustrate how a scheme will interact with surrounding countryside, and is extremely useful if a site is undergoing extensive landscaping and redevelopment.
MARINE AND AEROSPACE MODELS
The precision of our CNC service allows us to capture the clean lines and symmetry of yacht hulls and aerospace forms. These shapes, once hand finished to remove tool marks and tags, can be left as elegant and clean design forms, or further augmented with the fine details that give a model scale and create realism. Particularly with super yachts and large construction projects, simple ‘Speedform’ models can be useful designer’s aides to better visualise or promote a concept.

I would personally like to thank James and the team for all the work and the long hours involved to produce a high quality model with great attention to detail. The client is very pleased with the model.
