3D Printing for Architecture

3D printing has become increasingly popular for creating custom architectural models. Through our service, you can easily bring site masterplans, building plans, and unique concepts to life. We can create interchangeable 3D models to help you visualise your ideas and make planning decisions. We can 3D print buildings to your custom specifications, including intricate details.

Futuristic Concepts

We can manufacture futuristic 3D conceptual models that are hard to create any other way. Read about our work on a mereology tower, commissioned by UCL Bartlett School of Architecture, here. 

Historic Buildings & Landmarks

Create replicas of historic buildings and landmarks with 3D printing. You can choose from a selection of buildings that have already been scanned and shared online through “Scan The World”.

Common Materials for Architecture

PLA

PLA (Polylactic acid) is a non-toxic biodegradable plant-based bioplastic. Strong, durable and versatile, it is available in a vast array of colours. It produces an excellent surface finish and is perfect for architectural 3D prints.  We use only Premium PLA from ColorFabb (Netherlands) and Filamentive (UK).

Polywood

Wood-like, light brown, low-density material similar to balsa wood. Great surface finish, excellent for model-making.
