Architects and other AEC professionals are increasingly using 3D Printing to produce beautiful, physical, and highly-detailed architectural models. The experts can now showcase their ideas and impress their clients with tangible models that take into account precise building or construction site information.
They are saving time and money as well as winning more business by utilizing 3D printing to create intricate and durable designs straight from CAD data.

True Client Understanding
Two-dimensional renderings failed to accurately convey a sense of space, mass or scale, nor any clear line between landscaping and building. Wide angle and telescoped perspectives altered shapes. Still images and animated fly-throughs told the observer where he must look rather than giving him the freedom to walk around the model and look where he pleased.
"3D Printing" Architectural Models
OBMI architects perform their 3D design work in Google SketchUp CAD software. They use the ProJet CJP printer's full-color capabilities for landscaping, topography, streets and other surrounding features, and then set off the designed buildings or interior in white, the architect's traditional choice.
