Transform a metal sheet into a 3D model
Metal Works are amazing miniature 3D models that are made from sheets of laser cut metal.
Simply pop out the pieces, perform a bit of (sometimes intricate) folding, and voilà! Flat metal is turned into the Eiffel Tower, the Titanic, a Ferris Wheel, or one of many other engineering feats.
Grand detail on a small scale
Most Metal Works 3D Sculptures can easily fit in the palm of your hand, yet feature an impressive level of detail as well as textural design and etching. The laser cutting process allows for intense precision even at a small scale.
No specialized tools, screws, or glue required!
Metal Works require only your hands (and perhaps a pair of pliers to make things a tad easier) for assembly.
The entire model is contained within one (or more) four-inch square sheets of laser-etched steel. A set of instructions guides you, step-by-step, through the process of building your model.
Cool decorations & conversation pieces
Not only are Metal Works fun to build, they're great decor items. Keep them on your desk, bookcase, or nightstand. Although made from a thin sheet of metal, they are very durable.
