Not every transportation model is about highway redesigns. This is the Thor truck, an emergency 911 vehicle model. The problem with natural disasters is that they tend to take down the very services that were put in place to protect us.

We built this model for a light boot design for Solomon Boot Co. This prototype required that it be made of material in a very specific density and flexibility. After building the original model, we made a two part mold and cast the sole in a urethane that had the required properties.
Here are a few of the dozens of model we have done for Suncloud sunglasses. Many different techniques were employed including creating brass fittings, sculpting acrylic frames. creating RTV molds and making rubberized urethane model components.

As a prototype model, this has been a valuable [...]
This product prototype was created to help the home buyer visualize a custom canopy for their deck.

Our client makes huge concrete installations and needed a very specific shape to show the [...]

The shape is being used in a movie by being pressed into soil and onto leaves to foreshadow the fact that extraterrestrials are among us. The film is currently in production and I can’t tell you [...]
We get calls for emergency models and this was such a case. These prototypes parts were needed for a Monday meeting and we were given the call the Thursday before.
