CNC milling in model construction


Model construction with portal milling machine from CNC-STEP


The design and new development of CNC portal milling machines for model construction needs is a very special issue for us in the year 2004, as the actual idea matured from the model construction sector, a new CNC milling machine that is not only cheap and versatile, but also stable enough to mill metals and engrave stone.


Model construction applications are multifaceted

The CNC portal milling machines from CNC-STEP are therefore also used in many different applications due to their versatile applications in model construction. For example:

  • Model construction in the field of ship modeling flight model construction
  • Modeling technology for vehicle models, also made of brass and steel (tanks, excavators)
  • Hobbyists in the field of 3D mold construction
  • Industries such as ARCHITECTURE, CRAFTS, Rapid Prototyping
  • the general CNC machining of wood, aluminum, plaster, plastics and many other materials
  • milling of casting models, projection models, exhibition models, design objects and functional models

Model construction – Examples

  1. architecture model
  2. Design objects made of MDF
  3. Ship planks – strut
  4. 3D model of a Concorde
  5. Engines
  6. Small parts made of different materials
