3D Printed Architectural Models

We 3D print our models using variety of 3D printers, techniques and materials. Whether you need to 3D print a small scale wide area model or a foot tall detailed full colour model of the Gherkin, we can help.

As every 3D printing project is unique, we always tailor 3D printing to customer exact requirements. Below are some examples of our previous work.

London Landmarks 3D Prints

For a marketing suite project for a development in East London we have 3D printed number of famous London landmarks including, the London Eye, Tower Bridge, the Gherkin, the O2 Arena and the Olympic Stadium. Landmarks were then possitioned on a large-scale map, illustrating where the development is in relation to famous London sites.

Landmarks were 3D printed in 1:750 scale and in full colour.

Manchester Model 3D Print

For customers who require 3D prints of entire city areas, we are able to not only print individual landmarks but also wider area models. Our recently printed 3D model of Manchester has LOD3 and LOD4 models included and has been printed using SLA high-resolution large-scale 3D printer. The resulting product is highly durable and detailed two colour site model with cars, busses and trees added using normal model-making techniques.

Technology we use

We prepare models for 3D print using Magics RP by Materialise. It contains powerful tools for fixing and optimising colour files that make it indispensable in a 3D print bureau environment. This means we can add your models to ours if required directly from SketchUp, Rhino, AutoCAD, Microstation, AECOsim, Revit, 3D Studio Max and many other applications.

We 3D print using a Nylon SLS 3D Printer. For delicate parts such as spikes on London Eye model or top railings of the Gherkin model we send these parts to be printed using 3D Printers.

How to buy

You will need to contact us for a quote as 3D Prints are always made to order. The price depends on the price of the digital model, scale of the model and the complexity of additional requirements such as the ability to remove parts, addition of model trees etc.

We aim to deliver average-sized order within 7 working days, we will confirm delivery times in a quote.
