Solar Powered Parking Structure

  • Date: Decembre, 2018
  • Client: Sunpower Solar
  • Project Type: Trade Show Modell
  • Lead Model Designer: Bryan Beard


About this Project

Archetype3D designed and build two scale solar poser parking structure models for Sunpower Corporation. Each was designed to be assembled/disassembled on-site to allow for ease and security in travel to trade shows.

The models represented an accurate depiction of the real-world materials, using a  combination of 3d printing, laser cutting/etching and painting to produce the desired effects.

Details include a wood-trimmed base, detailed parking lot and lines, roof support structure: an inverter box, highly detailed solar panels, and LED lighting.

  • Model Size: 30″ x 20″ x 20″

  • Model Scale: 1:24

  • Site Location: Richmond, California

ATM Prototype

ATM Prototype Models

3 Sets of ATM Prototype Models Built for Sales Team

  • Date: January, 2019
  • Client: The Carson Group
  • Project Type: Travelling Sales Model
  • Model Designer: Michael Steinkoenig


About this Project

Archetype3D was hired by The Carson Group to design and build 3 highly detailed, accurate and properly scaled models of the Diebold-Nixdorf ATM. Each model was designed with interchangeable parts, showing the various options the actual ATM.  The size of each model was 18″ tall. Custom travel cases were produced for ease of travel for the salesperson.

 Each iteration of the model included:

  • Bases and Safes, foundation of model
  • Upper ATM Shell
  • Removable Side Panels
  • 6 Screen Combos
  • 8 U-panels

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.

Data Center


Winchester Data Center in Kansas City

Lead Model Designer: Bryan Beard

Project Info

This model was a combination of architecture and engineering. This model is used to give tours of this highly sensitive and high-security facility. The building is unique in that ist houses secure computer servers.  The wiring around all the roofs is actually a continuous lighting rod mitigate any hint of an electrical surge.

Numerous lighting events show off the data streams, the server locations, and the internal computer systems. The main center roof section rises up to show the lower level systems. external underground fuel tanks also light up to demonstrate their independence to the grid. We had to create some brand new lighting systems to accomplish all that was needed.


Vortisand® – Evoqua Water Technologies

Industrial Water Filtration System Trade Show Model

Model Scale: 1:12

Model Size: 3’L x 1.5’W x 2’H



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.
