For materialize virtual objects alongside 3D printing, which is considered to be waste-free production technology, we also use the milling where the products are formed from the production blank.
For milling we are using 3 and 5 + 1 axis milling machines (CNC), which allow a complex geometry mill products from blanks with a maximum length, depending on the machine type can be up to 1200 mm and diameter 450 mm. 5 + 1 axis milling software provides significantly more opportunities for the production of complex geometry products than 3-axis equipment.
Milling can be done with a wide range of materials including different metals (titanium, steel, aluminum, brass, copper, magnesium, etc.), marble, wood, and plastic (ABS, acrylic, polycarbonate, nylon, etc.) and foams.
Here are features and colors spectrum of suggested materials: metal, marble, wood and other materials::
