Cut small slice of molding place on scanner and scan. Convert to tiff file then import into Corel then trace then cut template for grinder on the laser (usually 1/4" material)or then export or saveas dxf. From there take into cnc software where you can do a two rail sweep of whatever pattern you have and the cnc can cut this without having to use a molder(takes awhile but for a circle, ellipse, or s shape probably still best). We have done a lot of this.
