3D Printed Architectural Models
ProtoCAM has specialized experience in creating architectural models. Various 3D printing techniques are utilized to create compelling and visually stunning 3D architectural models. In working with professional architects, ProtoCAM takes 3D CAD representations and uses stereolithography (and other 3D printing technologies when appropriate) to make dramatic architectural scale models. These architectural model prototypes can then be used for demonstration purposes to illustrate the shape and details of a building (home, office building, museum, church, etc.) or other detailed structure (bridge, sculpture).
Features of 3D-Printed Architectural Scale Models
Architectural models created with 3D printing are very visually appealing because:
- The detailed features of the architectural model created with 3D printing technologies cannot be matched by traditional architectural model making
- Architectural model prototypes support the purpose of the model: to sell the building concept and the architectural services behind it
- Models can be made to be translucent, and that appearance can very attractive and engaging when the building is lit from underneath, producing a dazzling aura for the model
- Alternatively, the architectural model can be colored or painted as desired
Key Benefits of Working with ProtoCAM for 3D Architectural Models
- Fast turnaround

3D Printing Technologies Used for 3D Architectural Models
ProtoCAM usually uses stereolithography for architectural models, but may use SLS, FDM, MJF, or Polyjet 3D printing when appropriate. Surface finishing and coloring may also factor into the choice of 3D printing technology used for each model.
