Let’s talk about process.

How do you get from this.

To this ?

Industrial Steel Millwork

Interpreting a complex shape like this from a 2D Drawing to a 3D object can be a very subjective and complicated process.  We’ve found the best way to achieve this is to build a very accurate 3D virtual model first, then make a scale physical model to evaluate.

Industrial Steel Millwork CNC Routed Model

Before we fabricated this complex Industrial Steel Millwork we CNC carved this 1:20 scale model from Ren Board, a rapid prototyping material, which was then submitted to the client for review.  As good as a drawing or rendering is, nothing is better for evaluating form, proportion and scale like a physical model, something you can actually hold in your hand.

Industrial Steel Millwork shop drawings

Once the base model is approved we generate a fully engineered shop drawing package, which is then also approved.  Shop drawings spell out our exact methodology, materials, finishes and assembly order with instructions; it’s a game plan for everyone to follow.
