Take a look at some of our CNC cutting jobs

This year has been a great year for ICA Creation so far. We can’t quite believe November is in full swing with 2019 just around the corner! 
One of the major aspects & game changing moments for us this year has been the addition of our CNC router!

This has meant that we are able to do all production including CNC routing in house in Cornwall and our turnaround times are a lot faster + we have much more flexibility with the projects.
As well as CNC cutting, we are able to prepare design files for the cutting which gives our customers more possibilities and an easier route in to getting the project done.

CNC routing is a great technology which enables us to be much more innovative.

We can cerate custom panels, create bespoke signage, cut out large letters, 3d logos, elements for furniture, pre-cut the elements for our products such as the Christmas sleigh.

Gargoyle sculpture

We worked with Studio  Tac to create the unique  sculpture to be used as a feature element for the touring Gorillaz band

The sculpture was hand carved based form various image references supplied to us by Studio Tac together with some creative freedom to sculpt.

We used high density PU foam to carve as this allows for more in depth detail for the sculpture measuring at 800mm high inc base.

The sculpture was then coated with FR polyurea in order to create a water and impact resistant surface. Once coated the sculpture was spray painted and decorated ready to go on tour! We also created a custom case for the sculpture to keep it stored safely + practical  transport. Have a look below at some images!

Dr Seuss concept – Discover story centre

 

It was great to work on an inspiring project brought by Discover London’s story centre

We were commissioned by Discover to create Dr Seuss themed elements.

The elements had to be as close as possible to the illustrations of the iconic DR Seuss, bright imaginative and quirky whilst being hardwearing +  practical.

Have a look below to see what we  created!

We created a Dr Seuss car
We were commissioned by Discover story centre in London to transform an adult tricycle in to the fun and interactive Dr Seuss car from his book The cat in the hat. Discover supplied us with the adult tricycle ready to transform. The main body of the car was carved from EPS, made in 2 sections, coated with fr polyurea which is water + impact resistant and spray painted to required colour. The cars various components were created using a combination of materials and a variety of techniques such as carving, welding, spray painting, coating to achieve final interactive and fun result! When transforming the bike we had to keep as close as possible to the original concept of the Dr Seuss illustration whilst making sure it would be durable and practical. The car is fully usable and the main body is removable for ease of transport etc. We cant wait to see the fun bike in action at events, It will be amazing to see the dr Seuss car out and about making people smile!

Dr Seuss themed interiorDr Seuss themed interiorIMG_5234

 

We created 4 colourful trees, each with an individual tree top shape. The trees were made from an internal aluminium structure for extra durability with an aluminium base. The outer material is polystyrene which was hand carved, coated with FR polyurea to ensure the trees are to be water proof + durable and impact resistant. All trees were then primed and spray painted with a  top coat to required colour number.

Bespoke sofa
We created a bright  and unique sofa. Carved from polystyrene and coated with polyuria, soft foam sitting section also coated with FR Polyurea for lasting durability.

The cave like tunnel!

 

 

 

We created the tunnel to fit perfectly the interior space of the story centre.

The tunnel had to be made in several sections as it had to fit through a standard size entrance.

The tunnel was hand carved out of EPS, coated with FR polyurea, primed ,  spray painted and decorated to finish.

Giant mannequin hand in the making!

See how we created:

Bespoke over sized hand with moving wooden elements

We were commissioned by Practical Minds Ltd to create a bespoke piece for special window display for an incredible fashion designer. We created an over sized mannequin hand with movable fingers, and chrome effect studs.

The hand was made from a combination of materials, for the finger tips and base we used beech wood and the palm was carved from EPS, coated with FR polyurea and spray painted black. We created an inner structure to make the fingers position adjustable like a mannequin. The studs were created with a wood turner and then spray painted to a chrome effect.

Have a look at some images of process and completion!

Giant dinner plates!

See how we created these giant Dinner plates!

We were commissioned by Juergen Teller Ltd to create two of  1.20m in diameter size dinner plates with HQ images applied onto each plate. To create the plates we first made a mould. From this we created the plates with fibre glass. Once the plates were  smooth we applied a base coat and topcoat spray paint with a high gloss white finish. Once completely dry we vinyl wrapped the plates with the required  HQ  images.

Have a look at some images of process and completion!
