The craft of full-scale model-making consists in the solid representation of parts and systems. The model-makers’ added value lies in the precise finish of blanks and their assembly. The product of their work must match customer expectations in terms of surface finish and dimension, but also functionnaly as the use of a full-scale model varies significantly : ready-to-paint prototype, master-model for replication, functional part in small-series, or even finished product for testing or commercialization.

The majority of full-scale model projects at MMB are for automotive, whether prototypes or 3D series.

Blanks come from any production technology mastered at MMB, although most often from plastics processing through plastics additive manufacturing, vacuum casting or machining.
