Architectural Industry

TriMech Advanced Manufacturing Services helps Architects and Technicians in the Architectural Industry to plan, create and win more business with realistic scale models directly from design data.

Architectural Solutions

Seeing is believing. TriMech Advanced Manufacturing Services help architectural firms seize more opportunities by creating complex, durable models  directly from their CAD data.

TriMech introduced 3D printing to the Architecture Industry in Canada back in 2004. Creating an awareness as well as educating when it made sense helping model makers to leverage their 3D CAD data. Taking designs that were typically created for 2D printing and plotting and helping to prepare their design data to leverage the capabilities of 3D printing.

Today, TriMech architectural 3D printing has become an indispensable service that is leveraged by large and small architectural firms. When there is a requirement for design communication, nothing instills confidence like an accurate highly detailed scale model of a building or structure.

TriMech supports clients such as Peter McCann Architectural Models Inc., JS Models, B+H Architects to name a few.

Stratasys 3D printing technology produces astonishingly smooth, detailed architectural models in an array of materials, including rigid photopolymers ready for painting and finishing. See example 3D printed architectural models below:  

How TriMech helps Architects and Architectural Technicians:

Create Scale Models

TriMech can create scale models of your building, architectural feature or interior detail such as a fixture or fitting. Models ensure accuracy and help to identify problems and eliminate errors in the design stage.

Urban Planning

Use 3D printing in the urban design phase of a project to study the effects of a new structure on its surroundings and in many cases plan an urban environment by 3D printing the surrounding area. 

Communicate and Sell more effectively

A 3D printed architectural model can communicate a project to clients more effectively than 2D drawings or 3D renderings, helping to sell ideas and close business.

Help Clients to Better Visualize your Design

With 3D printed detailed models, you can help your clients to better visualize the final projects, ultimately helping your firm to close more business.

Architect model making

Reduce hours spent creating traditional models

With a TriMech Stratasys 3D Printed model you can significantly reduce the time and expense in producing building models

Models often require highly delicate details, and 3D printed models are also stronger and won’t buckle or break over time.

PolyJet support architectural detail

Create a Library of Reusable Designs

Using 3D printing allows you to be more innovative with your model making.

For instance when you have repetitive pieces, we can print one as a mold, cast it, and then use the cast to injection-mold the required duplicates.


Architectural Concept

Reduce time and costs

Creating scale models is faster and cheaper than using traditional model making techniques.

Models can be created easily at different scales and if changes are required a new model can be created in a fraction of the time. Plus if duplicates are required we can 3D print additional models.



Advantages of PolyJet Technology

Advantages of parts built with a Stratasys PolyJet Machine

Realistic Parts

Stratasys PolyJet 3D Printers are based on proven technology, which creates precise prototypes that set  the standard for finished-product realism.

Their fine resolution makes complex shapes, intricate details  and smooth surfaces possible.

Precise Models

PolyJet 3D Printing works by jetting layers of liquid photopolymer onto a build tray and instantly curing them with UV light.

The fine layers build up to create a precise 3D model or prototype. Models are ready to handle right out of the 3D printer, with no post-curing needed.

Better ideas, easier sell

PolyJet 3D printed models improve communication and collaboration because they produce amazingly  accurate representations of your ideas that you can share with your team and your clients for a faster, more confident buy-in.
