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