You can’t get to groundbreaking if your client isn’t sold on your design, no matter how groundbreaking that design may be. There’s only so much you can do on paper when your client finds it difficult to understand your concept and vision. You could go back to the drawing board, or you could save time and skip the drawing board entirely.
High-quality 3d models put the spotlight on the final product instead of the process, letting clients experience your vision for themselves in a way that 2D renderings never could. With a physical mock-up meticulously created down to the most exacting details, your clients can engage in the review process in a meaningful way that aligns your visions and reduces rework down the line.
3D printed models enrich AEC projects from concept to completion and offer a fast, affordable way to get an objective look at your plans every step of the way.
Massing Models: There’s no denying the critical role that model making plays from even the earliest, conceptual phases of design. 3D printed massing models can save you hours of time and allows you the flexibility to edit your files and re-print your changes easily while giving you time to work on other essential tasks.
Construction Models: 3D print detailed models of even the most complex of structures to test its feasibility and provide a more accurate and comprehensive representation of your design’s form that your team and clients can analyze and explore up close.
Model Homes: House plans come to life and allow potential buyers and city planners to experience a single unit or an entire development, and provides contractors with a precise image of the results you expect to see.
3D Floorplans: Create easy-to-understand models of interior floorplans that anyone can comprehend, leading to faster revisions and approvals. 3D printed floorplans save you the time and money associated with hand-built models while producing plans that streamline communication by providing a detailed and intricate representation of your vision that helps shorten review cycles and avoid rework.
Interior Models: Design interior spaces with a greater ability to explore and experiment with the prohibitive restraints of conventional measures, resulting in spaces that are tailor-made and fully optimized for your client’s needs.
Architecture Models: 3D printing offers a cost-effective solution to quickly creating complex architectural models to scale that you can easily edit, so that you can explore and test every design element, all while shaving weeks of time off of your schedule.
Piping Models: Piping routing, connectors, and materials are laid out in an easy-to-visualize manner with 3D printed piping models to help engineering teams optimize every project for the most effective use of space while ensuring maintenance access and avoiding overlap.
Scale Models & Stakeholder Gifts: Create scale models of a single project or an entire city to represent any stage of your build to use in the design process, in presentations or sales meetings, or even for use as stakeholder gifts.
While 3D printing has been in use for decades, the surface of its potential has merely been scratched. New applications for 3D printing technology are being uncovered faster than ever before, and those in construction, architecture, and engineering are finding much-needed budget and time savings as they find new ways to incorporate 3D printed models into every aspect of their projects.
