Stratasys FDM and PolyJet 3D Printers and Production Systems – Architectural Applications
CATI offers both Stratasys FDM and PolyJet 3D printers and production systems throughout the Midwest. Today many Architectural firms utilize 3d printing for conceptual modeling.
Models are vitally important in enabling clients to visualize completed versions of proposed projects. But the process of building models is painstaking and extremely labor intensive. Accurately replicating scaled down details, in particular, is time consuming, difficult and costly. As a result, many models forgo the small, highly significant details that often distinguish exceptional design, with negative impact on clients’ decision making process.
Stratasys 3D printers slash the manpower and time required to create detailed, accurate scale models that effectively communicate the unique concept of each design to the client. They replicate fine design elements to scale exceptionally accurately in just hours, at a fraction of the cost of fabricated or hand-built models. Made of strong, durable materials, the models can include walls as thin as 0.6mm and intricate details that are surprisingly robust.
