Resources for 3D Digital Sculpting Creative Applications
  • Models developed from a sketch, photograph, scan, or an idea. Services for anyone who wants to see or touch their
    concept, regardless of scale or complexity.

  • Quality outsourcing services: high resolution 3D printing in diverse materials, 5 axis milling, wire EDM (electrical
    discharge machining), injection molding, water-jet and laser cutting, CNC technology (Computer Numerical Control)
    fabricated metal sculpture, fiberglass and plastics.

  • Virtual Graphics renderings for animated advertising, architecture, and site specific sculpture proposals.

  • Executing large-scale commissions. Creative applications such as: digital enlargement for 3D printing, direct casting in
    bronze without a traditional rubber mold, CNC milling of Styrofoam armatures for enlargement, digital scanning of solid
    objects, and more to help keep your projects on track.

  • Workshop on using digital software in how to sculpt in ZBrush and export files for 3D printing and videos for marketing.
