Architectural scale models are for more than just hobbyists. Custom models, prototypes, and scale structural representations are important tools in the world of architecture and design. If you are in this highly competitive industry, read below to learn the top three benefits of using scale models.
- Explore any architectural faults that may need fixing Architectural models are an important part of the building process to architects, engineers and designers. Instead of blueprints or drawings on a page, scale models are physical representations of a structure and accurately depict what the final building will look like. It is during this step that any architectural faults become apparent. Whether structural flaw or aesthetic obstacle, any needed revisions can be made to scale model before production continues. In addition, it is costly to make revisions once construction has begun. Scale models allow designers to make changes at a much lower cost.
- Show clients the final vision When an architect or designer is building for a client, they must often create to the client’s exact specifications. Scale models can show clients the finished piece in a smaller format to ensure that they are happy with all aspects of the design. If the client is an average consumer (a homeowner, for example) they may not be able to understand blueprints; It can be difficult for some clients to envision the final piece on a flat sheet of paper. Scale models serve as a communication tool to better explain the structural plan in a 3D format and visually please the client.
- Utilize as a valuable marketing tool When trying to sell architectural or design services, architectural scale models are imperative to your marketing efforts. There is no better way to exhibit your work than with a fully detailed model. Trade show models showcase your skills to potential clients in an exciting and engaging way. These models are truly a work of art and will dazzle and intrigue any inquiring eyes. In the competitive world of trade shows, you need a tangible, eye-catching product to display your abilities. A strong visual impact will help to sell your services.
