Building & Architecture

With the ability to quickly create complex building models for feasibility studies and client presentations, 3D printing is having an enormous influence on the building and architectural industries. Designers and architects can now choose from a variety of material and create physical models within days, and focus on innovation instead of change orders.

Having worked with many local and international firms across the building, construction, real estate and architectural sectors, we have delivered on a diverse range of solutions such as 3D Printing of complex scale models, digitizing and digital reconstruction of old structures and statues, as well as visualization models and construction planning tools.

3D Printing allows significant improvements in the building, design and construction processes, including:

  • Turning early design concepts into physical models, or quickly reflecting design changes and iterations from clients and designers
  • Creating true to scale models to align owners and clients
  • Direct print-outs from BIM system
  • Construction site models to aid construction planning
  • Print building sub-segments to check alignment, access and constructability
  • Prototypes for new parts to accelerate time-to-market
  • On-demand Printing for End Use parts
  • Reduced material with better design

Please refer to our brochure for more information.

True to scale models to align owners and clients

Fast and accurate models to impress guests, or demonstrate features to owners and clients to ensure earlier buy-in.

  • Print large scale building and master plans in multi-material to generate strong yet immersive full colour models
  • Print with removable or transparent roofs and walls to show interior detail
  • Discussions on layout and design at early start of engineering to share and capture input
  • Models can be produced more quickly, accurately and durably than traditional model making

Direct print outs from BIM systems

Extract DWG and IFC file formats from Building Information Management (BIM) systems and convert them to physical, tangible 3D models.

  • Print full buildings or sections for buildings to facilitate collaboration and interdisciplinary problem solving
  • Integrate fully into the EPC project management infrastructure to allow EPC players, main contractors and subcons to identify and address problems and clashes earlier in the design and construction phase

Print building sub-segments to check alignment, access and constructability

Print accurate and complex parts (like bridge sections or pipe racks) in simple, low tech materials for quick planning and visualization.

  • Identify clashes and access issues early in design and/or construction
  • Align subcontractors with required deliverables
  • Plan during construction forMRO access

Construction site models to aid construction planning

Print large scale durable construction site models that can be marked up.

  • Improve quality of daily site planning to align contractors and equipment movement
  • Improved health and safety planning, including access and emergency access
  • Identify clashes and work sequence issues early in construction
