These may range from illustrating the intricate details of building components to simplistic massing studies of entire cities. A model can be made to serve any budget or design objective, and can often save countless hours of expensive design time by bringing to light important design issues early in the process.

Let us help you in creating your next in-house model. Our laser service can quickly and accurately cut full building facades in minutes. This is a fast and economical way to achieve a variety of schemes for your study and presentation needs. The laser machine is a very effective tool when it comes to scoring and cutting. However, your part may require pocketing, beveling, or another detail a laser cannot achieve. This is where our computerized milling machines can help. Often, we combine mill tooling with the laser. We will be happy to discuss with you the best and most effective way to create your parts.
