Making an impact with a model

In architecture, model building and scale model making, the execution of the model is leading. This is how you really make an impression. Your design comes to life and clients or customers can suddenly picture themselves in the design you have made for them. Yet making a model or building a model is not always easy. Keeping the right proportions and cutting them out accurately requires craftsmanship, and the finishing touches require special attention. And all this takes time. Time that can be put to better use in trying to make even more customers happy.

The solution for every architect, scale modelers and model builders: a laser machine. Quickly, safely, effectively and affordably convert your designs into high-quality scale models and replicas.

Team V – architecture

Innovation predominates at the architectural firm Team V. Every project delivered by the firm’s architects is innovative, daring and at the heart of society. Complex projects such as railway stations are the firm’s expertise and this requires concept models that flawlessly represent the essence of these projects. Details in the three-dimensional representation of a concept really make a difference here.

In order to shape the concept models as beautifully and realistically as possible, Team V uses a laser machine. Where the process was previously done by hand, the machine offers the speed, accuracy and efficiency they were looking for.

Spaaij – scale modeling

Spaaij Maquettebouw proves that model making is a unique discipline in itself. Projects from every field are submitted to these specialists to be worked out as scale models – from apartment buildings to new housing estates and shipbuilding. The models are usually constructed from acrylic, which lends itself well to being processed with a laser cutter. Spaaij’s production level has therefore increased considerably after the transition from manual to automated laser cutting. This does not mean, however, that the passion for the profession has deminished with this new work process.
