It is now possible to design and manufacture true three dimensional shapes in schools. Modern machines such as Boxford’s A3 HSRi² Router can be used to manufacture products designed in software such as Pro/DESKTOP®, with a combination of accuracy and speed. The router can shape a variety of materials including perspex, MDF and model board. 3D modelling brings modern design and manufacturing technology into the school / college workshop.
