Riverfront Park In A Wood Model

This was an interesting project. Usually, clients ask for wood models because that is what they are used to building in school. They think it might be easier or cheaper in wood. The reality is that wood is a harder material to work with for a professional model shop. East West Partners – the developers of the Riverfront Park area in Denver wanted a wood model to show off a different style in there new marketing center. We have built dozens of a model for this client over the years. They have all been made using different plastics with many lighting effects they are also highly detailed and very precise. So when they asked for a wood look in this model it was for style reasons. They did not want to lose the detail or effectiveness of the sales tool.

We went to work using many different types of wood surfaces and many layers of etched patterns. We created a unique look that grabs the viewer attention as soon as they see it. This model highlights the building that East West has developed and keeps the surrounding building in a neutral color with less detail. I personally have never been a fan of building models with wood but this project has changed my mind. It is a very welcoming and organic material that – if done right – can be a very effective marketing tool.

Scale Models of Resorts | Colorado Grand | Interactive Model

Controlled interactive model

Breckenridge Colorado has some of the best ski terrain available. The Colorado Grand is a timeshare resort destination in Breckenridge which needed an exiting display to help generate sales. The Colorado Grand came to Archetype 3D to build an exterior model to show off both summer and winter activities along with a very interactive lighting system.

One of our challenges on this project was to give the sales staff complete control over the complex model lighting. We place individual LED’s into each unit. We had many events that our client wanted to feature including phasing, time share weeks, pet friendly units, units with vaulted ceilings. one bedroom, two bedroom . . . the list goes on. In order to provide them with all the control that they requested we programmed a tablet which connected to the model via Bluetooth. Each individual unit could be lit up separately along with all of the many categories. Marketing is not just about winter sports which is why the model also featured warm weather actives including an alpine slide. and human maze.

Vallagio Development

3D printing is a great tool that is used frequently in our model shop. This residential model is a good example. Many of the homes had identical footprints so with one 3D file we were able to quickly duplicate numerous copies. On the larger buildings, it was more cost effective to use our laser cutters and more traditional model making methods. One of our jobs is to guide our clients to the best looking and most cost-effective techniques for building their models.

Very often I am asked to build something, the purpose of which is a mystery to me. Model making is sometimes about recreating shapes and size to a specific plan without any further explanation. These models fall into that category.

We were asked to recreate these shapes by Ball Aerospace so I assume they represent items that are shot into space. It looks like they hold electronics and possibly lenses but I am not sure. I don’t ask and they don’t tell and as long as they are happy with the models I am happy to keep supplying them.
