The latest leap in 3D printing technology has changed the way many industries operate and architecture is no exception.
3D printing has found a home at many stages in the property development lifecycle.
And one can reason that architecture firms benefit the most from the advantages 3D printing.
This is especially true in terms of speed, detail, cost, and efficiency.
Thus, traditional model-making service providers are also rapidly embracing the technology.
It assists designers to produce more precise models, faster and cheaper.

First, let us look at why you might want to 3d print an architectural model.
Architects play a pivotal role in the development of any new property.
An architect is critical in building projects, from conception to construction and second only to property owners.
As such, there are plenty of ways 3D printing can impact the success of a venture.

Design Development and Selection Process

Hence, any designer will tell you that creation is an iterative process.
Imagine new buildings and specific design features.
They are drawn (physically or digitally), and the design is optimized over and over again.
3D printing allows the architect to build a physical representation of a design quickly and relatively inexpensively, thereby improving the final concept in a time- and cost-efficient manner.

An architecture firm may also find itself in a competition to promote their concept over a competitor.
For particularly important projects, drawings and on-screen visualizations might not be enough to highlight the supremacy of your design.
A 3D print is often used to help a concept stand out from the crowd and ultimately win the contract.

Presentation, Consultation and Marketing

Final approval of a building design is another important stage where 3D printing can play an important role.
Clients also feel comfortable making a judgement on a physical representation of a building or development than on a digital representation.

It is also common for a project to require some level of approval from a local council or planning authority, and these entities will typically require some level of consultation with the local public to discus the architect’s plans.
A 3D model can also put a design into context and help people outside of the industry understand what a development will mean for their community.

Once the build nears completion, property developers often build highly detailed scale models of their developments based on the architectural designs that assist in the selling of residential and commercial units. 3D printing is combined with traditional modeling techniques to create large scale representations that are works of art in their own right.
