Replicating Exterior Corbels

These corbels were on a historic building and in need of either repair or reproduction.

Because of the degradation over time, new ones had to be made. This is how we did it:

  1. We 3d scanned the corbel.
  2. We did some 3D modeling to correct the scan and make it perfect.
  3. We sent the 3D model to our CNC router software to create a cut file.
  4. We had to build a wedge or block for the corbels because they were slanted.
  5. We used our CNC router to cut out the corbels.
  6. We lightly sanded the edges from the rough cutting.
