HOLDS DESIGNED BY NATURE
At Mimic we use 3D scanning & digital fabrication technologies to replicate real outdoor rock climbs. Our goal is not only to create accurate and detailed replicas/simulators for training, but also to bring the experience of climbing outdoors into the gym.
First we 3D scan an outdoor route or boulder problem

Then we CNC mill a replica of each hold out of high-density shaping foam
For shapes too complex to mill, we have developed a unique 3D printing approach that still results in the exact same texture
The final shape is molded and then poured in climbing hold grade polyurethane, followed by heat-curing that helps to strengthen and prevent polishing
