3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing, is going to radically transform many design, production and engineering processes. Contemporary architects have access to a wide range of mediums to represent, develop and communicate their ideas, from simple sketches to newer digital techniques. The 3D physical model is proving to be an effective means for contemporary design representation.
We have recently begun 3D printing models of clients’ projects for them to be able to better visualize our designs. Our 3D printing team and architectural designers work together to produce accurate representations of facades and exterior details.
At Landscape, we are keen to explore the present and likely future applications of this technology, specifically in relation to architecture and design.
