Foam Cut

Client: Visit Huntington Beach

Project: Foam cut of the World’s Largest Surfboard

Scope of work

  • Foam cut

Machined in two surfaces to accommodate shipping, this complex shape came to life at Symmetrix Composite Tooling. The design was inspired by Australian surfboard shaper Nev Hyman. Westerly Marine build the board using boat building techniques, and the finishing touches were applied by local Huntington Beach surf aficionados.

The 42′ long surfboard, with 66 people on board, rode a wave for 12 seconds, breaking two Guinness World Records in the process: for most people riding a surfboard at once, and for the world’s largest surfboard.

Pattern and Plug Cutting

 

Client: Hatteras Yachts

Scope of work

  • CNC machined plugs for 360° bustle caps

Hatteras Yachts is a leading boat builder out of New Bern, NC, known for their innovative fishing boats. Symmetrix was asked to build patterns for portions of a new build.  Using our standard methods and materials, our engineers and shop craftsmen developed a plan using our accurate CNC machining center to create seamless 360° small parts.

DTM / FRP finished surfaces

 

Client: Confidential

Project: DTM / FRP supply of building soffits for a modern structure

Scope of work

  • CNC machined surfaces of lower soffits

Over 2000 ft2 of non-repeating organic surfaces shape the lower soffits for this modern structure currently under construction. Veiled in secrecy and under tight confidentiality, this program was perfect for DTM machining, shortening the build duration while limiting cost. CNC machining on the scale available at Symmetrix brought the architect’s vision to life, and we hope to share more details when the project goes public.

Pattern

 

Client: Goetz Custom Composites

Project: Master pattern for the Staten Island Children’s Museum wind scoop skylight

Scope of work

  • CNC machined pattern

Machined in two surfaces to accommodate draft and release, this complex shape came to life at Symmetrix Composite Tooling. Goetz Custom Composites completed the FRP step before installation on the roof of the Staten Island Children’s Museum.

The wind-scoop skylight, comprised of a rotating cowl and a colorful, translucent rotating drum, uses stack-effect air circulation to passively ventilate the building below. The drum extends down into the museum, providing an animated display that indicates wind direction.
