Revolution in architectural model

In the past, the construction of a model was often more of a headache for architects than channelling their ideas and visions into a perfectly executed planning document. The

three-dimensional scale model representation  of a new structure to be erected in an existing architectural environment was therefore seen mostly as a necessary but unpopular chore - however one that many clients insist on when deciding to award a contract. The digitalisation of planning data, the internet and new processing technology have now revolutionised model-making.

How it works

The material you have selected is printed according to the digital data provided using a UV-resistant ink, so as to simulate the coloration on the structure as authentically as possible on the model. The facades of the “Small format houses” are able to convey an impression of glass, stainless steel and masonry - right down to the smallest detail. Even the colour of the sun blinds can be shown on the model. This is based solely on the data transferred from the original plans to ours (see Data Preparation on the Service page). Before placing your final order with just one click of the mouse, you can calculate the costs for constructing the model.

On receipt of your order, we first convert the data for printing the sheets and then cut them out to shape using a plotter. We produce to an accuracy of one-tenth of a millimetre to ensure you obtain a high quality product. Up until now, this degree of precision manufacturing was simply impossible to achieve up when model-making by hand. Within 48 hours of placing your order, you will receive the sheets with the individual components cut out, leaving you to just stick them together in your own office as if completing a jigsaw.

The time of fiddling, filing and generally faffing around when constructing models by hand is over – which of course reduces the cost of model-making.
