Most of the architectural models we 3D print at Shapeways never make it into the Shapeways shops as they are private 3D prints for architects and their clients. Not only do we print scale model buildings but often other items such as furniture, cars, people and animals that bring life and a sense of scale to the maquettes.
Here are a few architecture maquettes, models and miniatures that are available to purchase in the Shapeways shops. If you have a architectural 3D print, whether it be your student work, a historic building or client work that you can share, be sure to make it available in your Shapeways shop, it may be just the thing someone is looking for to add to their own 3D printed landscape.
Those who are unfortunate enough to fracture a limb but
fortunate enough to do so after the advent of the 3d Printing technology can
rejoice. Jake Evill, an Architecture and Design school at Victoria University
of Wellington alum and Shapeways user, devised an ingenious alternative to the
classic plaster of paris cast, one day effectively making the smelly,
cumbersome monolithic a thing of the past.
