My Armature Is Delivered To My Door

This box arrives at my doorstep.
Love when an armature is made for me.

I had been away and out of the studio for a week and while gone I was happy to see that Synappsys Digital Services, took the digital work that I had done and created and milled out my pieces.  Here is a bit of technical information for any artists seeing this blog post. Synappsys has  two CNC milling machines, a 21inch z axis,   and a custom one that they designed and built— a 3 axis- with a 8′ rotary axis. besides  milling Synappsys Digital Services, offers 3d rapid prototyping. They are in Norman Oklamoma which does not pose that much of a problem for me as a Texas artist as I can send them my files and foam pieces are light and will fit in a wardrobe box.

A visual example of the milling process

The process
Foam is put on the milling machine and the machine mills out the digital file that I have sent to them.  The entire reason for this process is that it saves me time in creating an armature. I also can figure out some details of the process, and design which has been discussed in previous posts.


You can follow along with this entire process of creating a life size bronze for the ERJCC on the Evelyn Rubenstein project blog located at
