Organic Modelling


Creating organic complex shapes in 3D CAD

Our organic modelling service works by creating organic complex shapes in 3D CAD. It is typically required when asked to create a 3D model based on living entities such as a human, animal or plant.

The recreation of these types of models demands particular levels of detail compared to hard surface modelling for inanimate objects such as buildings and products. This is due to the nuances of texture and movement that are inherently associated with organic beings.

It is also equally important to remember that organic objects are not made perfectly and it is quite often their imperfections that make them feel so real and relatable. This is an aspect of organic modelling we make every effort to include in the process, ensuring the finished article reflects the real life object down to the smallest of details.

Organic Modelling Service

Our organic modelling service is often used as part of the research and development stage either in tandem with your own in-house design team, or as part of a project we are managing from start to finish for our clients.

Thanks to the combined decades of experienced available within our engineering team we are able to take on even the most challenging of projects. Our in-house capabilities include use of software such as ZBrush, the industry standard for digital sculpting. It allows us to produce highly detailed models thanks to the millions of polygons available and we customise the digital clay to the exact requirements of the object’s shape and texture.

The use of this technology enables us to accelerate design times, while also improving accuracy. Building organic complex shapes in 3D CAD is supported by an array of tools that facilitate the creation and analysing of inserts and sliders, cores and cavities and complex geometries, all based on a 3D model. This includes access to tools such as draft analysis and correction, no-fail shelling, thickness scanning, core extraction and mould cavity functions.

Organic Modelling 3D Printing

Our organic modelling service works in conjunction with our 3D printing capabilities. Once the model has been completed to meet requirements, we are then able to apply it to any number of our 3D printing tools, which includes SLS, SLA, FMA and Polyjet printing. Which one is utilised will depend on the level of detail required in the initial prototype, which will be discussed at length with your project manager before proceeding onto the next stage of the project.
