Our creative process
We create unique 3D crystals from your photos and 3D CADD modelled projects using a combination of state of the art software and laser technology.
Be it a prototype, corporate award, or sales promotion, we will design and create an awe inspiring 2D/3D crystal show piece.
Any concept can be converted into a tangible and
long lasting 3D crystal that will take centre stage
in your business.
Sub surface laser Engraving
Photo crystals are made using a 'YAG laser' that focuses its concentrated beams of light to a precise point below the surface of the crystal.
The laser achieves this by focusing a high powered beam on each three-dimensional coordinate. Once the beam reaches the focal point, the powerful laser pulse makes a tiny void or inclusion inside the crystal.
The laser then moves to the next coordinate and makes another etched point. Finally, enough points are created to reproduce the design deep within the crystal. As laser beams are non-invasive, no marks or blemishes are left on the surface of the crystal. When viewed from any angle the intricate design is viewed much like a three dimensional sculpture.
3D Models and designs
We can also use your 3D designs, CADD models, Prototypes, Blueprints, and even Gaming/Animation creations from a wide range of file formats. The list is almost endless.
We have the ability to transform your 2D photos, logos, art work and other designs into 180° 3D images. We can literally build the photo out from the page and almost bring it to life. This process can be used for almost any type of image.
