Cold Spring Granite Co. has developed 3-dimensional (3D) Solid Models, generated from 2-dimensional geometry. These 3-D images are realistically rendered and can be rotated at any view. "The study of a Solid Model can produce accurate detailing information --speeding the approval process, and often times reduce drafting time, fabrication time and costs," said drafter Rick Schmid.

The majority of projects consisting of complex designs are manufactured using one of the company’s 12 CNC diamond wire saws. With a combination of expert drafters and craftsman, Cold Springs Granite utilizes the latest in technology to create unusual and complex shapes, meeting project requirements in a timely and cost-effective manner.

The solid granite American flag is an example of one of the projects, which was created by employing Solid Modeling, and crafted by a CNC diamond wire saw. The Academy Black granite base is 6 feet 0 inches x 2 feet 3 inches x 0 feet 8 inches, and the flag, which is 4 feet 4 1/4 inches x 2 feet 9 1/2 inches x 1 foot 3 1/2 inches, is made of Sierra White granite, in highland in red, white and blue.
