Soft Models:  3D sketching for the design staff

We like models.  Our staff thinks of them as 3D sketches, a way to work out the forms and shapes for a new design with their hands.  Sometimes they're rough, maybe even crude to quickly evaluate a design direction.  This way in a matter of hours or a few days we can review the design and use the information to keep the project moving.  This saves our client time and money.

At other times, like the urethane foam model above for a dermatology laser, they are more carefully finished as part of a later stage appearance presentation.

We make these models in one of our two, in-house model studios using foam core board, plastic and urethane modeling foams.
