We can only accept AKUShaper BRD files.
The Surfboard Studio can supply AKUShaper BRD files for you to use with AKUShaper software. Once you have completed your modifications we are able to CNC your prototype using the APS3000 machine. Please be advised that the APS3000 is super sensitive and needs lots of love and attention. For this reason we can only accept custom shapes as AKUShaper .BRD files.
APS3000 CNC MACHINE
The APS3000 utilises AKUShaper BRD files.
The Surfboard Studio has an in house APS3000 CNC machine to offer contract cutting surfboard design.
The CNC pre shape service provides a precise contouring of the rough foam blank. The CNC program allows for the input of specific 3 dimensional details which enables the cutter to shave the exterior foam, eliminating the need for the early stages of surfboard shaping. These co-ordinates can be inputed as part of a system template or can be customised to a clients specific needs. The APS3000 has the ability to shape both front and side profiles allowing for rocker and rail sensitivities.
The CNC service is available to all stages of surfboard manufacturing, from the backyard sheders, to medium tier manufacturers. It helps in saving time if you are producing 20-30 boards a year, or constructing limited runs/ranges for retail, promotional or advertising purposes. We have seen the service used for individuals tweaking their design, and coastal shapers cutting down on shaping times. Please email us with any further enquiries or future bookings.
