3D carving 6061 alloy on the Metal Storm CNC - A real Christmas story...



We had some fun testing the capabilities of our Metal Storm CNC.


In this fun project we used some 16mm 6061 grade aluminium to make this beautiful recreation of the "TV Dinner" scene from the best Christmas movie of all time, "Die Hard".


Stay tuned as we prepare to launch the Nighthawk Metal Storm very soon!
