DTM / FRP finished surfaces

 

Client: Confidential

Project: DTM / FRP supply of building soffits for a modern structure

Scope of work

  • CNC machined surfaces of lower soffits

Over 2000 ft2 of non-repeating organic surfaces shape the lower soffits for this modern structure currently under construction. Veiled in secrecy and under tight confidentiality, this program was perfect for DTM machining, shortening the build duration while limiting cost. CNC machining on the scale available at Symmetrix brought the architect’s vision to life, and we hope to share more details when the project goes public.

Designer: Bill Tripp

 

Scope of work

  • CNC machined patterns and plugs for the hull, deck, transom, steering pedestals, and interior pans
  • Plug surface finish advanced to 400/600 grit and buffed to high gloss finish
  • FRP Production tooling with a gel-coat finish, Vinyl ester ‘low shrink’ resin system, CSM, print blocker and core
  • Split on centerline with removable shears for demolding. Hull tool included a walkway and safety hand rails
  • Our tooling supported the hull and deck laminate that was infused carbon fiber with epoxy resin and a painted finish
  • The accuracy of the CNC tooling produced fair and symmetrical surfaces while shop craftsmanship took care of the details

Accuracy is spot on. The speed of producing product and tooling was very good. They provided project details as requested, were very accommodating and easy to work with. All in all, wouldn’t change a thing.
