Models have always been a great visualization tool for architects and designers. They not only allow designers to look at a variety of design concepts quickly but they can also show the client a three dimensional representation of their dream space (plus they are fun to build!). Architects now have a plethora of options available at a cost that is attainable for smaller sized offices. 3D Printers, Laser Cutters and CNC Routers all offer great opportunities in this new era of affordable “do-it-yourself” manufacturing. Here at DCA we have jumped in with both feet. Using our MakerBot Z18 3D printer and our new Glowforge laser cutter we have been producing massing models, sectional models, enlarged detail models and even some presentation models. While it’s still not as easy as some people think with the “just press a button” mindset, the benefit vs. time/cost is still very high. Let us know how we can help you realize your vision!
