3D cnc milling and routing in foam
3D milling with a High-Z CNC Router in foam and wood
On the left you see a flacon milled in polystyrene with a 3mm radial router. Of course you can mill a piece as such in perspex or timber.
You design a 3D-Cad model, generate a dxf File using e.g. Desk Proto in a DIN ISO file format, that’s it. Depending on selected dissolution you get rough or absolutely clean surface in the final resulte.
Conversion program: Desk Proto from Filou.
3D milling on hard-foam / CNC Routers routing
3D operations with hard-foam
The museum Albersdorf run by Mr. Arnold produces landscape-reliefs made of hard-foam for exhibitions using a High-Z S-400. The models seem absolutely authentic.
Exihibits are partly up to 300x400mm large with a depth of up to 50mm.
Thank you very much for the pictures from Albersdorf museum.
3D cnc milling on aluminium
Pictures and videos of a 3D-treatment in aluminium.
We work with a 3mm radius router, 5mm depth of cut, 1mm roughing
After a smoothing phase with 0,5mm the sculpture looks almost …….polished. Video: Sculpture milling in aluminum
That’s the direct way to the rotary axle tool (more pictures and videos).
3D milling customer examples
Example for 3D milling with our High-Z S-720 CNC Router (customer photographs)
Many thanks to Mr. W. from the Netherlands who supplied these photographs.
Applications for model making:
Minitature connection rod milled of aluminium using a S-720 CNC Router. Polishing up after milling, finished.
3D milling with the axis of rotatio RounDINO 120
The first photos and videos of 3D travels in Styrodur.
We would like to present the milling of a sculpture in styrodur for you here. It is particularly suitable for demonstrations because it is possible to mill it with huge depth of cut.
We waived the smoothing here.
The stl-file was uncomplicated converted in a millable DIN ISO file within few steps by DeskProto with giving of some parameters like milling depth, router diameter or shaft length

New!!! Scan 1000 Pro
Sensorical-Scanner 3D for hard materials
In many CNC milling machines / CNC Routers useable.
3D milling with a CNC Router on wood
3D milling with a High-Z S-720 CNC Milling Machine / CNC Router in hard beech wood
For producing prototypes the first model is usually milled of a tangible material. Ply-beech is also very suitable, since the material will have a smooth surface finish.
The surface finish is already polished. Time necessary for the complete works is around one hour using a D8mm radial-drill bit.
Construction and NC-programming of this piece was done by using software by SCHOTT SYSTEMS. At this stage we would like to thank Schott-Systeme for the file. More information to follow soon.
3D milling on plastic
3D milling in POM plastics
3D milling operations are quick and clean e.g. in POM. This kind of plastic is very hard and therefore most suitable for milling operations.
On the left you see a prototype of an airplane wing. Obviously statues or figures can be reconstructed. Many thanks to the company Filou, who have supplied this file.
Video: Milling of a small model airplane. Processing time with the CNC Router High-Z : aprox. 40 minutes.
Files are easily produced e.g. with Turbo Cad or Becker 3D and then converted into a file format that can be read by PCNC or WIN PCNC. File conversion can be done with e.g. Desk Proto Lite in a DIN ISO.
