About this Project

Archetype3D was commissioned by the Michigan National Guard to build 2 very large, 8′ x 8′, topography models for its annual training exercised, Exercise Northern Strike. One of the models depicted the entire state of Michigan, the lake, and portions  the bordering states and Canada. The other model depicted the Camp Grayling area. 

Exercise Northern Strike is an accredited National Guard Bureau-sponsored exercise uniting approximately 6,000 Army, Air Force, Marine, Navy, Coast Guard and Special Forces service members from 20 states and multiple NATO coalition countries. The exercise takes place at Camp Grayling Joint Maneuver Training Center and Alpena Combat Readiness Training Center, both located in northern Michigan. The exercise provides accessible, readiness-building opportunities for military units from all service branches to achieve and sustain proficiency in conducting mission command, air, sea, and ground maneuver integration, as well as synchronization of fires in a joint, multinational, decisive action environment.

Project Info

Our client the Marriott Company had several specific requirements for this interactive model.The entire building needed to light up with the push of a button. Conversely, a sales person also needed to light up only the units of a certain price point. Mountain facing vs Ocean facing vs lower level vs penthouse, this model allowed the sales team to zero in on the best unit for the price. The other requirement was that the pools and ocean glow in the sales office. The palm trees, beach umbrellas and lot of site details we brought the topical nature of the model to life.

 

Oldcastle Water Drainage System Trade Show Model

 

This model was created for Oldcastle to demonstrate a new water drainage system. As the water flows through the pipe, vortexes are created which allow waste materials and trash to be collected at the bottom. This is a fairly complex system so LED lighting was installed to trace the water flow through the pipes. Buttons on the back allowed salesmen to guide their clients through and interesting water flow demonstration. This model draws attention to the booth and provides an attractive demonstration at all their trade shows. The model is large enough so that salesmen can point out all the features and demonstrate the ease of collecting gravel or garbage and cleaning out the system.

 

Scientific Drilling

Scientific Drilling needed to demonstrate their complex oil drilling system. Archetype3D was hired to design and build a display model to demonstrate this system. The challenge was how to represent radio waves travelling from an underground drill bit to a receiving tower.

The drilling system system sends signals into the surrounding ground to determine if there is another pipe in the way. The drill bit can then be redirected taround the obstacle. To show this and other features of their system Archetype3D designed a not-to-scale  demonstration model to show off these features. This circular model has events shown on all sides. They include the by-pass system and ocean drilling systems. Earth striations will represented with numerous drill systems travelling through. The lighting was created to show movement through the earth and signals being sent to a central tower.

Each element of this model was carefully designed and approved by the client so that the sales team could use it to sell at least five different product types within the same model. The model has traveled to numerous trade shows throughout the US and when not travelling it sits in the Scientific Drilling lobby to attract visitors and explain their systems to local clients.

Making complex systems easy to understand is one of the best uses for a physical model at a trade show. Your model should attract customers from across the room and once you have them at your booth, the model needs to clearly demonstrate you products so that they can relate to the model and your product quickly and understand why they should buy right now. Allow your sales team a easy way to show off your product, have your demonstration model built by Archetype3D.

Project Info

Vortisand® systems are synonymous with water filtration, serving the industrial water markets since 1986. The award-winning Vortisand is a High Efficiency Microsand Filtration System. It is a high capacity media filter that combines cross-flow dynamics with microsand media to achieve submicron filtration performance. This technology allows the unit to operate at filtration rates of up to 5 times greater than those of traditional media filters while filtering 10-50 times finer.

Vortisand® brought on Archtype3d to build a traveling trade show model to demonstrate the basic functions of their industrial filtrations system.
