3D PRINTING & PROTOTYPES

Our skilled workshop team specialise in the creation of bespoke prototypes using our state-of-the-art machinery and software including 3D scanners, printers, 3,5 & 7 axis CNC’s and laser cutters, accompanied with traditional model making skills.

These early-design prototype pieces give our clients a chance to see a realised product swiftly so they can identify design improvements and iterate again with a short turnaround. This way, we make sure our client is completely satisfied with the creative direction before making significant investments.

CARPENTRY & METAL FABRICATION

Our carpentry & metal shops are filled with some of the best craftspeople in our industry offering one of the most flexible and productive fabrication facilities available.

Encompassing a wide variety of crafts and skills, they use their expert knowledge to shape and fuse a broad range of materials from steel and
aluminium to woods, high-pressure laminates or even glass.

Our team are not just carpenters. joiners or fabricators but artists.

Working closely with our technical designers and project managers to solve complex build challenges delivering stunning end results to our clients.

3, 5 & 7 AXIS CNC MACHINING

Within our workshop we have the machinery to enable us to craft almost any material into almost any shape. Our 3-axis machine can cut a wide array of sheet material from metal to foam.

The 5-axis machine enables us greater freedom and is frequently used to cut intricate shapes from polystyrene foam and some harder foams with its exclusive hotwire,

Our 7-axis robot, which is manufactured by Kuka, enables us to achieve the greatest intricacy. It can be used for milling and modelling with its four interpolated axes, and as a standard 3-axis milling machine and hot wire cutter. The robotic arm is much like our 5-axis but better. It can work on larger objects and a wider array of materials. The robot also allows us to produce more complex geometry objects with under cuts and has a far shorter production time than the 5 axis.

SCULPTURE STUDIO

Our talented sculpture team specialise in the creation of complex and highly accurate busts of famous characters and creatures from a range of blockbuster films for theatre and display purposes. The models are created from a combination of techniques combining CNC machining, 3D printing,  Casting and Clay Sculpture using traditional methods. 

The models are then painted by our scenic painting team to create incredibly lifelike results!

MOULD MAKING & CASTINGS

Our skilled workshop team are experts in the creation of complex moulds used to produce intricate GRP components. Our team works with a range of techniques and with a variety of materials, including working with GRP directly. We work with traditional manufacturing methods where necessary alongside more modern casting techniques such as rotacasting. Rotacasting provides high-quality, repeatable, lightweight and hollow 3D castings. This fast, low-labour-intensity process allows us to save on labour costs and production time, savings we pass on to our clients.

COATING & COMPOSITES

Our skilled technicians apply a variety of coatings and composites to finish large and small-scale elements with speed and precision. Including Pure Polyurea, Polyurethane and a hybrid polyurethane/polyurea mix, various resins such as polyester and epoxy systems and an eco friendly water based system called Jesmonite. The team also specialise in GRP and Carbon Fibre fabrication to create cost effective, lightweight, strong, corrosion and temperature resistant structures.

Our facilities include duel component spraying systems, 6 x extraction spray booths where we can achieve ultra-high gloss, dead matt, reflective chrome, gold shades, pearlescent, iridescent, and metallics. Not forgetting dedicated GRP and carbon fibre suites, and CNC operations.

Our coatings meet ISO, BS, EURO, and international standards. This method also enhances object durability and aesthetics, using Polyurea, Polyurethane, or a composite layering.

SCENIC FINISHING

Our skilled team of Scenic Finishers can turn their hands to almost anything, meaning the opportunities for your projects are almost limitless.

They have experience in virtually the entire scope of painting and crafting techniques and are experts in the use of a variety of different media. Whatever finish you desire, we can achieve it.

ANIMATRONICS

At Scruffy Dog we work with our trusted partners to integrate the latest electronic engineering technology and bring amazing models to life. We design and develop our models in-house, simultaneously using an array of technologies including, electronic, robotic systems, mechatronics, servo-controlled systems, hydraulic and pneumatic systems, to embody movement in our creatures or displays.

We utilise commercially available control systems, or if required, custom control software. We work closely with our clients to deliver solutions that meet and exceed their creative and technical aspirations.
