Model Making Process

CNC Milling CNC Milling of a complex roof shape

CNC Milling
(CNC is an acronym for Computer Numerical Control) Is used in conjunction with client provided 3D CAD data. This data is converted into machine language used for cutting. The advantage of this process is the ability to accurately duplicate the 3D data as a physical model. At OT model fabrication this process is used primarily for sculpting complex 3D shapes.

laser Laser at work

(LASER is an acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation) Our CO2 laser is capable of cutting and etching acrylics, wood, paper and just about any combustible material with the exception of metals. It is the process most often used at OT model fabrication for creating flat 2D parts such as architectural facades. The very fine kerf excels at etching fine details.

Mold Pattern, Mold and Casting

Moldmaking and Casting
Not only does mold making allow us to duplicate parts but also gives us the flexibility of making rubber parts of various durometers. This is often the only plausible way to make flexible parts in an economical way.

Quality Control Quality Control

Quality Control
All our models are built to exacting tolerances. We use surface plates and precision tools to assure squareness throughout the build.

Paint and final Assembly Paint and Final Assembly

Paint and Final Assembly
Careful planning during initial stages make for easy assembly of painted parts. In Architectural Models, interlocking elements are often used to reduce the need for adhesives in assembly of finished components. All paintwork is custom matched to client's specifications.
