Case Study 1
Client: Zaha Hadid Architects
To produce a 1.5m x 1.0m master planning model directly from the client’s 3D CAD data within 2 weeks to meet a competition deadline. Design additions and changes to be ongoing throughout the build.
Feature buildings are Rapid prototypes built directly from the client’s 3D model data
An extremely close working relationship with our client was essential to the success of the model with constant changes, updates and additions. The landscape and existing features were CNC machined from the 3D CAD data in high-density model board in one piece. The central building features (45 separate structures) were manufactured using the SLS rapid prototyping process and mounted on a SLA rapid prototype base. The mirror feature was laser cut from acrylic mirror material.
