Study Models: quickly materialize your ideas

Save time and stand out of the crowd with amazing study models.

Forget about Foamcore, we produce white architectural models in any format you may need for an improved representation or to showcase multiple alternatives on the initial phase of your project.

Our plastic and resin materials are strong and durable enough to be easily transported and safely handled. The multicolor material is also a great alternative to represent your ideas and accelerate your design workflow.

Competition models: give your project the best chance of success

Present effectively your ideas to a jury or other professionals with a 3D printed Competition Model additionally to your Proof of Concept Model.

We 3D print architecture monochromatic models in large sizes: up to 27” in a single run and we can carefully section your model if it is bigger.

The main advantage of 3D printing is that we can produce any model regardless its shape, even for one single unit. It is the ideal fabrication method for Competition or Graduation models.

They 3D print with us

Architects, real estate developers, industries... they have chosen Online 3D Printing!
I am very happy with my collaboration with the Sculpteo team, who were fully involved in the project and highly responsive.
We have worked with a lot of partners, and Sculpteo particularly for our scale model made by 3D printing, which has allowed us to produce the model in a very short time, in the exact way we imagined it.
Sculpteo provides an important service by producing made-to-order models for designers and researchers.

Architects Roubert Ravaux Clément

This competition architectural model has been 3D printed with the polyamide laser sintering technology for the architects company 'Roubert Ravaux Clément architectes', 'Svenn Architectures' and Mr Benoit Vanneste. They are the winners of the contest organized by ALT and OSICA called 'sustainable and solidarity housing'.

Maquette de la villa Teo par JB Pontecorvo

Jean-Baptiste Pontecorvo's Project

This designer chose full color material and white plastic material in order to create his study models for the Teo Villa. Teo Villa is a very innovative self-sufficient green housing project; 3D printing was used to perfectly simulate the shapes of the roof and to create the model of the wind turbine.

French Architecture Museum

Sculpteo has build this promotional architectural model for the fundraising campaign dedicated to the restoration of the 'Merveille du Mont Saint-Michel' mockup in 2014. Selective Laser Sintering 3D Printing has been done in several section in order to build a big size model of 1 meter high, 50 cm large and 90 cm long.
