The Best 3D Printer for Architecture and Civil Engineering Applications
How Can an Architect or a City Planner Use a 3D Printer?
An ideal 3D printer for architecture must have a tall print envelope to print tall buildings with ease and accuracy. An architect or a city planner (urban designer) can use a 3D printer to make a solid three dimensional model of their building or city plan. This physical model can then be shared with investors or other clients for inspection and approval. Here we share some photos of a 3d printer architectural model. In this example, we have 3d printed a copy of “Metropolis.” As you can see, the Airwolf 3D printer XL is a great 3d printer for architectural model making. The print envelope is 12″ x 8″ x 7″.
This Metropolis model is more than 7 inches tall. The close up photo shows the details of the buildings-you can even see the tiny windows! While printing this model, we paused the machine several times to change the filament color. By doing this, we were able to highlight the different heights of the various buildings. The result is a true three dimension, multicolored city scape. The multicolored levels draw attention to the various different heights of the buildings and their affects on the urban landscape.
