Realistic Mockup of a Housing Estate
Creating a good architectural mock-up is no mean feat because it requires perfect reproduction of details, fine aesthetics and high quality of craftsmanship. The end result must impress potential investors and developers. The challenge was to create a highly detailed, large-scale architectural model of a modern housing estate in 3D printing technology.
Get Models Now decided to use a ZMorph multitool 3D printer to print all of the infrastructures of the mockup, and use traditional mockup making methods and materials only for finishing. The buildings were divided into segments and put together after printing. The area around the residential buildings was fenced and covered with green grass, on which a playground was placed. The remaining space was developed with trees, shrubs, parking spaces and lamps. Additionally, the mock-up has realistically made lighting inside and outside the buildings.
The end result is a 120 x 150 cm realistic mockup of a housing estate made with the utmost accuracy and attention to detail, and of course a ZMorph multitool 3D printer. Creating an architectural mockup in 3D printing technology has nothing but superlatives – it’s much cheaper, faster and more accurate than traditional methods. Designing and 3D printing is an excellent tool for modern architects.
