Digital Studio + Enlargement
Our digital capabilities are an essential part of our business, and every year this technology is servicing more and more artists, architects, designers, and entrepreneurs. We are continually evolving this department, which includes:
We have mobile and on site scanning devices which provide the ability to create accurate 3-D files of objects of almost any size and complexity. The data from the scan is manipulated to facilitate the enlargement or shrinking of the work piece to a desired scale.
Wind-Up Hello Kitty
Installed at Lever House, New York City
Started at 12" and was enlarged to 30ft tall.
Our 4-axis milling machine is an incredible tool for recreating the scanned object, most often in a foam “pattern”. This provides a fast and economical opportunity to realize a change in the scale of the work, and to prepare the “pattern” for molds/casting or other uses. Organic forms and complicated surfaces are ideal for this process.
Hot Wire Cutting
Perfect for realizing the geometric or symmetrical, hot wire allows us to rapidly cut shapes and patterns in foam for sculpture, architecture, and design components. Similar to the milling technology, it provides the client with a quick pattern in a reduced or enlarged size.
