We see many architects 3D printing their models using Shapeways 3D printing service but most of them remain behind the scenes and never make it onto the Shapeways site or blog so it is always cool to see architectural 3D prints in the Shapeways marketplace to share what architects are doing.
One of the coolest architectural models we have 3D printed at Shapeways lately is the 1 WTC by Stefdos which is a 3D model of One World Trade Center (Freedom Tower) that glows when lit from within with an LED.
This amazing model that is 3D printed in full color at 25cm high is only $25 on Shapeways, that’s $1 per cm… bargain. Check out the video below….
Also check out New Orleans tower Rotterdam 15cm by the ame designer that also glows when lit from within.
