Your passion is creating brilliant designs that earn the opportunity to realize your vision as efficient and stable structures. Your ideas look amazing on your screen in a meeting showcasing your concept. But what if an ultra-detailed, load-bearing, solid model of your design could be displayed in the center of the conference room to more effectively present to colleagues, clients, and leadership? What if this model could facilitate early support for turning your design into reality? What if you didn’t have to worry about spending too much of the budget creating something that could be touched, felt, and understood? What if you were able to present 3D models of more than one option? Imagine winning a contract because a 3D model helped your client grasp your vision and showed that your concepts have progressed farther than your competition.

3D Printing Architectural Models

Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) 3D printers can create small models in hours and large models in days. Using production-grade thermoplastics to produce cost-efficient, durable concept models that can be drilled, sanded, and painted. Present your ideas with the confidence that comes with knowing that you have the tools to help your client grasp your vision.

Need a little more pizzazz? Create even more realistic models with Stratasys PolyJet technology. For smooth, detailed prototypes that convey final-product aesthetics, PolyJet 3D printers make beautiful, precise models in a huge variety of materials and colors. Polyjet delivers microscopic layer resolution and accuracy down to 0.1 mm, merging colors and materials into a single model for unsurpassed efficiency. You can create models that look and feel like finished products. Rigid housings, smooth surfaces, soft-touch buttons, rubberlike seals, clear components, lettering, and more are available for you to make your workplace your playground. You can even adjust properties like heat resistance and durability. Let your imagination break through a world of limits.

A Wide Array of Materials and Textures

For vivid-color projects and fixtures, the Stratasys J750 delivers true, full-color capability allowing you to examine realistic samples, from neutrals to neons, shadows to highlights, and more. Produce textures, gradients, transparencies, durometers, with over 500,000 colors to choose from. Load up to six materials at once with multiple material selections, including any combination of flexible, rigid, opaque or transparent materials and their components. The J750 utilizes twice as many print nozzles in each print head to produce details with a layer thickness as fine as 0.014, about half the width of a human skin cell. The single print operation minimizes finishing steps. The J750 turns ideas into reality freeing you to imagine the possibilities, so dream big!

3D Printing in Architecture Has Arrived

3D printing is not a concept for the distant future. It’s a reality that architects are using today to differentiate themselves from the competition. Don’t waste valuable time and money with outdated processes and modeling.
