When we talk about architectural models, 3D printing begins with a three-dimensional digital model. This is basically the basis of the product, and architects use several complex programs such as 3D CAD.

After preparing the design of the model to be made, the model is divided into several layers, which helps to facilitate the reading operation by the 3D printer.

After dividing the model into layers, the actual printing takes place, using the chosen material. The physical 3D model will be made layer by layer according to the initial digital model.

With the help of a 3D printer it is much easier to print complex models, made of various materials and in a shorter time. Also, the end result will be much more accurate.

How does 3D printing help create architectural models?

There are several benefits that 3D printing brings in the creation of architectural models.

  • Shorter execution time
  • Since the human factor in making architectural models is removed, the execution time will be shorter. Thus, we will be able to hand over a project for an architectural model of a house, a residential neighborhood in a faster way, etc.
  • Various parts and larger models can be printed

3D printers can be used to print parts that will be quickly added to the architectural model. For example, you can print lighting poles that will then be placed on the model.

Likewise, you can print recycle bins, cars, people and other elements that will make the model more human. But in addition to parts for architectural models, larger models can be printed on 3D printers. For example, you can print 3D models of compact or loose blocks, which will then only be assembled, like a 3D puzzle.

We also successfully use 3D printers to make architectural models. They help us obtain exceptional, professional models, very well finished, of a high quality, various lasting materials which are delivered in a short time.

If you need a model for an important project, feel free to call us for a customized offer.
