Parts and components
Paradigm 3D can provide 3D printed architectural models for:
- Concept models
- Customer approvals
- Exhibition models
- 3D mock-up models of plant
- 3D scale replica models for urban planning
Paradigm 3D can rapidly build 3D printed architectural models from your designs which can be available within hours or days, as opposed to weeks or months as per traditional methods. To print 3D models, you need to have a 3D CAD design file in stl format. Paradigm 3D’s automatic quote system can verify your design data for 3D printing and provide you with a quote. If you need any assistance with your design data, the company provides a full design to production consultancy service to help you get 3D parts and models on demand.
Why use 3D printing for architectural models?
3D printing is an efficient and accurate way to create 3D physical models for design verifications, approvals and display purposes and is especially useful for complex geometries including organic shapes that are very difficult to reproduce as traditional paper-based models.
In addition to saving costs and time, 3D printed architectural models made with FDM technology, (Fused Deposition Modelling), are physically durable and tolerant of the prevailing environmental and climatic conditions that can be found in the Middle East region, and therefore provide a very attractive option for exhibition models that can be easily transported.
With FDM technology, a 3D printed architectural model can be printed in ‘floors’ or sections to fit together seamlessly, giving unprecedented design visualization, for communication with clients and contractors. Internal geometry of the building or plant can be revealed or individual floor plans can be reviewed. The ability to ‘build’ the sections is unique to FDM technology, due to the way the 3D printer head builds the 3D design geometry layer by layer.
