Unveiling Precision: Crafting Custom Shower Tray Plugs with CNC Routing in MDF


In the dynamic world of CNC machining, Trade Made takes pride in transforming innovative 3D designs into tangible masterpieces. Our recent project involved the meticulous CNC routing of a custom shower tray plug, showcasing the seamless synergy between precision engineering and craftsmanship.

The Challenge

A local company approached Trade Made with a unique proposition: the CNC machining of a bespoke shower tray plug based on their intricate 3D model. This project not only exemplifies our commitment to excellence but also highlights the versatile use of Medium-Density Fiberboard (MDF) as a primary material.

Behind the Scenes: Crafting Excellence with CNC Routing in MDF

1. File Examination for Precision Assurance

Before diving into the machining process, our experienced team thoroughly examined the provided STL file. This step is crucial to ensure the flawless execution of the 3D model during CNC routing.

2. MDF Magic: Creating a Solid Foundation

To bring the design to life, we opted for Medium-Density Fiberboard (MDF) as the material of choice. Layering and laminating MDF sheets, we created a robust blank ready for the CNC router.

3. Precision Machining in Action

The CNC router took center stage, precisely translating the 3D model onto the MDF blank. This step requires a delicate balance of speed and accuracy to achieve the desired results.

4. Fine Detailing for Perfection

Our commitment to excellence extended to the finer details. From the drainage hole to crafting a side draft angle, each aspect was meticulously machined to perfection.

The Result: A Masterpiece in CNC Routing and MDF

The culmination of our efforts resulted in a flawless shower tray plug, a testament to the capabilities of CNC routing in MDF. This project not only met but exceeded the client's expectations, showcasing the prowess of precision engineering.

Why CNC Routing in MDF?

Medium-Density Fiberboard (MDF) proves to be an ideal choice for CNC routing due to its uniform composition and versatility. It allows for intricate designs and precision machining, making it a preferred material for projects demanding both aesthetics and functionality.
