Kingspan concept models

In August this year we were contacted by the international company Kingspan. A manufacturer of many modern solutions for the construction industry.
The project included prototypes of a water tank and a commercial mini sewage treatment plant.

The project was different from the others that we made. The task was to make really small and small models (up to 15 cm long). The models are to be used as an element of the installation with the use of photorealistic models and a hologram.
Our models were first redesigned on the basis of the CAD documentation provided to significantly reduce their scale, but with as many details as possible. After receiving the 3D models, we started to print in 3D.
In the production process we used 3D SLA (stereolithography) printing technology, thanks to which each element was precise and almost perfectly smooth.
The models were painted and assembled by our specialists, giving a very good final result.

The scale model of Cracow

Kraków – Old Town and Kazimierz – in 1:600 scale.

At the foot of the Wawel Castle, at the InfoKrakow point at Powiśle 11 street, ha has been exhibited a model of the centre of Kraków covering an area of 315. The project was carried out together with Archimod and Rapid Crafting.

Our task was to create the entire digital area with buildings in CityGML LOD2 accuracy (Level of detail 2) and the main monuments objects in LOD3 accuracy. After creating a digital model, the buildings in LOD3 were printed in 3D in SLS (selective laser sintering) technology. The rest of the buildings were milled and assembled by a friendly company Archimod, which conducted this amazing project.

We invite everyone to visit the exhibition.

Port Praski scale model

Architectural and urban model of the Port Praski in Warsaw, Poland.

In 2017 we had the pleasure to cooperate with Port Praski in the implementation of an orban model in the scale of 1:500 areas located in Warsaw, near the Świętokrzyski Bridge. A model with dimensions of 200 x 160 cm.

The model was made in a mixed technology. 3D SLS technology printing was used to make the blocks. The investor’s buildings were made using photo-etched copper in order to obtain the best possible detail.

The final result was very satisfactory with a crazy deadline of 30 working days.

32 Statuettes for the Eurobuild Gala

Once again we had the pleasure to prepare statuettes for Eurobuild magazine.

We had only a few weeks for the project. During the project, our task was to design the statuettes, to obtain a modern block in the colors accompanying the event.

After creating a few sketches, we refined the 3D model, which was 3D printed on a 3D printer in the FDM technology. 3D printing definitely speeds up the design process, and technology such as FDM allows us to produce test models at a very low cost.

The model from 3D printing was post-processed in order to resemble the final model as much as possible.

We had 32 statuettes to make, each of which weighed about 600g at a height of about 30 cm. 3D printing was too expensive, so the models were made of cast resin.

We made the appropriate silicone forms and selected a quick bonding resin. This made it possible to cast several models a day.

Each model was varnished and then received a plate made of photo-etched copper.

The end result is very good and the deadline was not threatened in any way by the use of different production technologies.

We would like to congratulate all the winners.

A model for the blind in bronze

Bronze model of the Dernałowicz Palace.

At the end of 2018 we had the pleasure to make a model of the Dernałowicz Palace located in Minsk Mazowiecki.

The project consisted of a number of actions to deliver a high quality product in a very short time.

We started with photo documentation and 3D scanning of external elevations, roof and terrain. The data was used to make a 3D model. After the consultation phase with the client, we came to the appropriate detail of the model.

First, the model was made by our constructors of white PVC. The prepared object was used to create a silicone form for casting.

Meanwhile, in consultation with the client, we have created appropriate texts for blind people, which have been added to the areas of the model.

The last stage was to make a bronze casting and patination.

The model of the Palace for the blind stood before the end of the year. Another project ended in success and satisfaction with customer satisfaction!

Printed 3D rover

A model of the moon surface with a printed 3D rover.

Recently, another edition of the Scientific Picnic was held. The event attracts many enthusiasts of new technologies, so it could not miss the Polish Space Research Centre.
Once again we had the pleasure to cooperate with this institution, this time creating a model of the moon surface and a drilling rover.
While creating the model we used classic methods of making mock-ups and 3D printing. Models of the rover and power umbrella were printed in 3D in DLP technology with resin. Thanks to this, we were able to reproduce very accurately the smallest details directly from the 3D model.
The model looks very well, as always :).

3D printed phone covers for Huawei.

Huawei developed an artificial intelligence application for the phone to enable blind people to “see” the emotion on the face of the person they are talking to by translating it into sound.

Facing Emotions, developed by the Polish Association of the Blind, uses the Mate 20 Pro rear camera of Huawei’s phone to read the emotions on the face of everyone the blind user talks to, analyzing their expression using Artificial Intelligence (AI). The offline learning algorithm used in the phone identifies the main features of the interlocutor’s face, including eyebrows, eyes, nose and mouth. Then it can determine the positions relative to each other and identify a specific emotion.

The casing design from 3D printing was created by the Polish designer Jan Kochański and made by Rapid Crafting.

We have printed 3D models of the enclosures in DLP technology. Selection of appropriate technology ensured dimensional accuracy and aesthetics of the finished product.

At the moment we have made over 200 casings in 3D printing technology. Thanks to this method of manufacturing, there is no need to create expensive injection moulds and the number of models produced ideally meets the demand.

Urban model of the city of Bielsko-Biała for Cavatina.

At the end of 2018. we had the pleasure to start the implementation of the urban model of the city of Bielsko-Biała for the developer Cavatina.  The model had to be made before the MIPIM fair in Cannes.

Cavatina will introduce gigantic changes in the city creating a new space for residents and tourists.

As you can read on the Erobuild CEE website, “The variant concept includes the revitalization and reconstruction of 15ha of the historic city centre. It was developed by the group’s internal architectural studio in cooperation with the Department of Urban Planning and Spatial Planning of the Faculty of Architecture of the Silesian University of Technology. The project included analyses of transport, urban transport, accessibility, greenery, historical conditions, building structure and urban composition.

The design of the model itself was very interesting. We wanted to use a classic material such as wood, but we wanted to use modern manufacturing techniques and new technologies such as 3D printing.

The whole spatial development was modeled in 3D in LOD2 accuracy (level of detail 2) and then milled out from wood. The main investments were modeled with LOD3 accuracy (level of detail 3) and then printed in 3D in DLP technology.

The whole project gave a very coherent effect. The model presented itself very well at MIPIM 2019 in Cannes.

We hope that more and more such interesting projects will be created.

Production line scale model

Packaging line for Unilogo

Recently we had the pleasure of making a prototype of a production line for Unilogo, a company that creates specialized packaging machines.

In view of the upcoming trade fair, we had only 2 weeks to do all the work related to the creation of two mock-ups.

We decided to do them in 3D printing technology. Therefore, the work started with adapting the models supplied by Unilogo in the form of STEP models. Thanks to our qualified staff, we were able to quickly adapt the modules to 3D printing on an appropriate scale.

The models were printed in 3D using MJF (multi jet fusion) technology offered by HP. 3D printouts were printed very quickly due to the 3D printing process offered by MJF technology.

After careful planning, the models were painted and then assembled together with the LED installation.

After 2 weeks we had a ready-made exhibition model, which looked great.

White Granary in Słupsk

White Granary in Słupsk

In June, a new exhibition was opened in the museum part of the White Granary in Slupsk.

One of the new elements of the exhibition is a 1:50 scale model of the White Granary made by Rapid Crafting.
The model was made on the basis of old drawings and photographs of the object. Thanks to the use of classic methods and 3D printing, the model is characterized by very good reproduction and high durability, which is so important for open models. Exhibition models that do not have a protective cover require special construction and materials that provide adequate resistance to young visitors.
The model was made in just 1 month from the day of the order.

The final result, as usual, is very good.
