Freedom Of Creation was approached by NEXT architects to create an exact replica of an existing roof structure for a scale model. NEXT Architects needed to include the existing building structure in their model. But how to create such a complex structure quickly and precisely?

3D printing was the answer, the parts were drawn by NEXT architects and produced in one of our Laser Sintering systems. Each of the beam sections is only 1mm in thickness. Combining the 3D printed parts with the traditional maquette built by Made by mistake, NEXT Architects created a fabulous model.

In this project you can really see how traditional model making can be combined perfectly with new rapid manufactured model making.
