CNC machining of the main body from the clients 3D model data
Case Study 1
Client: Zaha Hadid
To produce 2 intricate scale models directly from the clients 3D CAD model and finish to the highest level in a pearlescent white paint finish.
Front and rear lights to represent glass and a highly polished black base with good reflective qualities.
The 2 models undergoing paint preparation and final assembly
The body was 3D CNC machined in high density Ureol directly from the clients 3D CAD model data. The wheels and tyres were rapid prototype SLA builds and the front and rear lights were made using CNC machining from clear acrylic and polished.
The model was then finished in a pearlescent 2-Pack paint with the windows being represented with a gloss black paint finish. The base was CNC machined from black acrylic and polished to create a highly reflective surface.
The 2 models have travelled the world and have been displayed at many prestigious venues including the Gugenheim Museum and Goodwood.
Rapid Prototype and CNC machining processes employed to create these high level models
