In addition to hand-crafted forms made of wood and bondo, we are also proud to offer CNC designed and routed thermoform tooling. These patterns are used for prototyping and as negatives in the process of making a production quality vacuum forming mold. Large CNC patterns are our bread and butter. We utilize a Multi-Ax 5-axis CNC Router. We can produce single piece patterns up to 156"x168", and 69" tall - which is one of the largest capabilities in the business. Additionally, larger parts can be produced by cutting them in sections.
Depending upon the requirements, we utilize Pine, MDF, RenShape, etc. as the material to be milled. We work with your existing 2D or 3D models, digitize your existing plastic part or vacuum forming pattern, or design from the ground up based upon your ideas or napkin drawings. We're fast, accurate, and efficient. Send an RFQ today, or just give us a call.

Our pattern department has over forty years of experience in hand-making thermofom patterns. Our superior attention to detail does not start and stop with the tool shop. Our master pattern maker can work from your prints, parts, or napkin-drawn concepts. Each vacform pattern that we produce has been primered, prepped, and drilled so that it is proto-ready when it shows up at your door.
