About Us

Professional Model Makers

Since 1984, model builders at  Archetype3D have been serving customer 3d scale model needs. We started making 3D architectural models for the Colorado ski industry and for residential developers. Our company grew to include work building models for architects, real estate, land development, industrial design, engineering, sales and marketing, government, trade shows and prototypes. We have gained national recognition as our 3D scale models and prototypes are now exhibited throughout the US.

We pride ourselves on our impeccable customer service. Our attention to detail in understanding the client’s needs gives us the ability to solve problems and guide clients through the maze of traditional and modern model making techniques.

While we excel in the traditional hands-on model making, we can also create and print durable 3D models using our 3D printer, cut precise parts and pieces using our laser cutters and finish the models using many surfaces texturing and painting techniques. We provide lighting and special effects for many clients using motorized components and computer interactivity. From the simplest mass models to the most elaborate sales presentation models,  we provide each customer with excellent service and communication.

Archetype’s staff is composed of college graduates in industrial design, model building, architecture and fine art. They bring together their specialized training in utilizing modern machinery and craftsmanship to create work suited to each client’s goals.

We are committed to staying in the forefront of modern technical and business developments, ensuring our clients receive the best product and service available in the industry.

We look forward to working with you in the near future.
