What file type is required to 3D print parts of the diorama?
We work with all architectural CAD programs including AutoCAD, Revit, Chief Architect, ArchiCAD and Sketchup, just to name a few. If you design in 3D, we will start with your 3D files. If you have 2D blueprints and elevations, or artist's sketches, we can build a diorama from these files as well.
Do the 3D printers print in color?
Yes. Most of our diorama models have some part of the diorama printed in full-color, sandstone-like material and the printers print in full color. Anything printed in UV-cured resin materials are a single color but can be painted.
What is the material used?
Most of our diorama models are 3D printed in sandstone-like material; however, we also print in UV-cured resins. We also use traditional hand modeling techniques for large topographies and landscapes as well as for large architectural models.
What is the largest diorama you can 3D print?
The build envelope on our larger printers is 9" x 15" x 20". This is the largest diorama model we can print in a single piece. We can 3D print larger models in multiple pieces which is a normal part of the process.
What is the turnaround time for a diorama model?
Depending on size and complexity, this could be from 4-6 weeks for a small diorama to many months for larger dioramas. We understand that sometimes deadlines are tight and we can usually accommodate rush orders.
Can you 3D print the interior details of a building?
Yes. We can create a diorama model with a removable roof and floors so you can see the layout of the building.
Can you 3D print terrain, swimming pools, arbors, hardscaping features, etc.?
Yes. We 3D print many of the items in our diorama models.
If I want a second diorama is it cheaper?
Our pricing is based on the amount of material used, size of the project, and time it takes to build the diorama. A second duplicate is less money because the design portion is complete.
