This architectural cartouche is modeled after a similar one found on the Schütting building in Bremen. This 3D model is ready for CNC engraving.

The cartouche 3D model that you can download here is rectangular in shape, measuring 1194x870x60.5mm, but its dimensions can easily be changed by scaling in any 3D CAD or CAM software for milling, routing and engraving. The cartouche is an architectural decorative element and represents the framework around a relief, image or coat of arms. In this model, the cartouche is the frame around the relief of a human face, and the central area which is framed is oval shaped.

By editing in 3D CAD software, the central relief (relief of human head) can be cut out and some other motif can be put instead. In this model, we did not design the taper of the side walls, so you have to model it yourselves if you want to make a mold based on our model. Different materials require different degrees of taper of the side walls. If we modeled them for a particular material, we would hinder the work of all those who want to make a model of some other material.
