CNC Engineering Models

Rapid Prototyping and 3D Printing technologies are additive processes, where layers of materials are bonded together.  Computer Numerical Control (CNC) Machining technology is the opposite, a block of plastic or metal material is the starting point and drill/cutters remove the material to create the model. 

Why would you select the CNC machining process?  When you need to hold high tolerance, and when you must have your parts in a specific material (plastic or metal) to produce accurate prototypes or end-user parts. 

Key benefits:

  • Widest choice of material - we use production plastic and metal
  • Tight tolerances
  • Low cost part prices for one-off or short run production projects
  • Multiple finishing options
