Furnace Model w/ Lift off Top

KiwiMill’s latest project features a furnace model with a lift off top.

The real product is a melting furnace , primarily made out of aluminum. Our model makers thought it would be a nice effect for the model to mimic the materials of the real thing, so they used sheet metal for the walls. This gave the model a very authentic look as well as making it sturdy for handling.

The roof lifts off to expose the interior of the furnace model. The interior parts were made with a combination of laser cut plastic and 3D print material. The I beams on the exterior and top of the model were hand-built.

Another interesting feature of this project is that two furnace models were built concurrently. If a client is considering having duplicate versions of a model, having them built simultaneously can help save on costs.
