Data preparation


How it works:
We print your planning data onto a diverse range of materials in digital flatbed print at maximum resolution using UV-resistant ink. After printing, the components are cut out on a flatbed cutting plotter based on your data precise to 1/10 mm.

Please see below for an example of how to prepare the data for a printed architectural model. In order to create an unprinted model, simply omit Step 1 Print layer.


Data preparation:
All the steps in this process are carried out from the completed architect’s plan.

Base plate:

Step 1: Print layer
Select the format and material (e.g. DIN A3, MDF 3 mm) and compose a plan in the corresponding format. Print out this plan as a PDF file named “Print”. Everything on this plan will be printed on the material you require.

Step 2: Cut layer
On the same plan as in Step 1 - but on a layer of its own - draw in the lines along those that are to be cut. Print out this layer as a PDF file named “Cut”. N.B. The Cut plan must be laid out congruent to the Print plan. The pre-printed material will be cut along the lines drawn on this plan.


Building:

Step 1: Print layer
Select the format and material (e.g. DIN A2, screen printing board 2 mm). Position the building components (e.g. elevations, ground plans, etc.) that you need for the model close together on the selected print format so as to save space and print this out with “Print” as the file name.

Step 2: Cut layer
On the same plan as in Step 1 - but on a layer of its own - draw in the lines along those that are to be cut. Print out this layer as a PDF file named “Cut”. N.B. The Cut plan must be laid out congruent to the Print plan. The pre-printed material will be cut along the lines drawn on this plan.

Repeat these procedures for all the building components you require, for example, windows made from polycarbonate film or a roof made from screen printing board, etc.

After we have machined the individual parts, you will receive them printed, cut and ready for self-assembly.
