K&A Scope:

From artist’s 3-D computer data, design fabrication method, engineer, fabricate patterns, molds and manufacture parts to complete the monolithic sculpture.

 

Description:

This FRP and steel sculpture was fabricated by milling one of its segments on our 5 axis CNC router using urethane foam. A mold was produced off of this pattern and multiple segments fabricated to complete 1/3 of the circumference of this three sided sculpture. The assembly was fastened to the structural steel armature and another mold of the entire length was taken. The other 2/3’s of the sculpture was fabricated into this mold. These were then assembled onto the steel frame, faired and finished with linear polyurethane automotive grade coating.
