The biggest challenge in the architecture industry is always the intense competition. There will always be multiple architectural firms competing for the same project. The question is – how does one stand out from the rest? Let’s dive deep into how 3D Printing can help in Architecture industry:

Mitekgruppen Redesigned Stockholm City

By using Google Earth, Mitekgruppen, a Swedish design firm 3D printed the whole city of Stockholm.

There are two main challenges in the architecture industry:

  • The rapid iterations of architecture models.
  • Traditional mock-up model was all done by hands – tedious & expensive process.

The rapid iterations of architectural model are not uncommon as architects would need to study how the building structure interacts with the surrounding environment. From building structures to local cultural context, architects need to take a lot of factors into account.

Due to the timeline and heavy investment, architecture model is often done at the end of the

process. Along with the heavy workload and quick turnaround, architectural firms normally end up with only one model for the client.

Owning an in-house 3D Printer allows you to print revised design

on demand.

Imagine going into meeting with a physical model while your client is staring at you with mouth wide open. We’ve progressed from the time where client only accepts hand drawing to now, photo-realistic renderings. There will be a point where client will only demand for real models, here is more to how 3D printing can aid in architecture industry:

Better Visualization of Your Design

By printing the models in-house, you’ll be able to understand how the design interacts with the surroundings be?er. Most importantly, you have the flexibility to turn over design iterations and the capabilities of making multiple copies – whether it’s for internal discussion or an extra model to be placed on client’s desk.

Create Your Scale Models Faster

You can make models in different scales and most importantly, 3D printing can significantly reduce the time in making architectural models. Characteristics such as thin wall, internal cavities and fine details can be printed in-a-go while you’re focusing on other important matters.

In a nutshell, 3D printing allows faster design iteration and

facilitating discussion in the company.
