Case study

These images show the process of a recent project to create a complex tool for vacuum forming.

Beginning with CAD, the tool is created in 3D virtual reality and refined before moving to the prototype stage.

At the prototype stage a secondary material, in this case MDF, is used to create a 'dry run'. Once the prototype is approved, we create the final tool.

The final image shows the actual tool being machined in aluminium, ready for use within a vacuum forming machine.
