Fabrication
What differentiates our fabrication shop is the breadth of capabilities and quality of machine tooling all under one roof. In one facility, we offer extensive digital capabilities, including CNC machining, 3D printing, laser engraving and a full-service print shop, alongside more traditional techniques and methods, including mold-making, sculpting, blacksmithing, painting, welding and woodworking. By controlling every step of a build from design to completion, and by focusing on quality assurance and control throughout the process, we’re able to handle complex projects on short timelines. We work closely with our clients, aiding their creative process with design and engineering solutions, and a deep understanding of fabrication processes and materials.

MOLDING & CASTING

Our mold-making shop serves a wide range of industries, including film and television, fine art, architecture, jewelry making, and sculpting. We mold and cast in a variety of materials, from rubbers and foams to bronze and stone, working closely with our clients to determine the best choice of materials for their projects. We also provide original sculpting for artists, architects, and model makers.

3D Printing

With applications in prototyping, prop making, product design and manufacturing, our 3D department can design and print almost any shape, from complex organic structures to functional mechanical assemblies, printing in ABS, polycarbonate, nylon, stainless steel, titanium and rubber.

Design & Engineering

We work at the intersection of design, engineering and fabrication, collaborating with our clients throughout the creative process. We take anything from a napkin sketch to a fully rendered design and CAD set, providing insights from our collective experience to ensure a product is functional, elegant and buildable within a budget.

Laser Engraving

Our large bed CO2 + Fiber fusion laser cuts and engraves almost any material - acrylic, metal, wood, rubber, leather and glass. The applications are just as varied—cutting precision parts, engraving promotional products, fabricating signs, and point of purchase displays, to name a few.

Event Displays

Our event displays have helped our clients to create memorable experiences in several industries, including fashion, cultural institutions, visual merchandising, experiential marketing and retail.

Effects

From pyrotechnics, lighting & atmospherics to animatronics, prosthetics and mechanical components, our effects technicians can wholly transform an environment for any tradeshow, production or special event.
