Benefits of 3D Printing for Architects
Architecture is about realising a beautiful design, vision or combining form and function to create something new. A creative idea starts in the mind and translating this to your peers sometimes can be challenging, let alone your clients.
Using 3D printing in your process allows you to quickly create a tangible model. The impact of a physical object is stronger than a visualisation on a computer screen. Start physically creating directly after modelling your ideas. The 3D printer does all the work for you, saving time on creating a model or shape study by hand.
A huge advantage is the freedom in form. Conventional methods of model making allow you to quickly create boxes, but a curved object like a stadium provides a serious challenge. A 3D printer can create any object for you to convince your client with one, or several high quality models during your pitch.
