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.

Let’s Build Something

Building 3D scale models since 1984. Our talented staff of model builders is ready to assist you in the design and build of your project.

Scale Models for Trade Shows – Oldcastle Water Drainage System

This model is created 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.

Scale Models for Museums – Ice Core

The great thing about being a model maker is that you never know what challenges the next project will bring. I live in Boulder CO, the location of NCAR, UCAR, NOAA, NIST and many other federal letters. The National Center for Atmospheric Research has offices in one the most distinguished (architect I. M. Pei) buildings in my town. Overlooking Boulder, sitting on a mesa against a backdrop of the dramatic mountains NCAR is a serious research facility dealing with the worlds climate. The also house a newly revised visitors center with many interactive and informational displays. We were commissioned by NCAR to construct a model of an ice core to be illuminated and placed in this visitors center.

ICE CORE: These are cylinders of ice mined in various locations from Greenland to the Arctic. The deeper the core sample the farther back in time the ice was formed. The bubbles in the ice still contain the atmospheric elements that were present during that ancient time to the core becomes a record of how our atmosphere formed and has evolved over the millennia.

In learning about the ice cores we visited the Denver Federal Center were many cores are brought for study. This is a lab that is kept at – 27 degrees Fahrenheit. The scientist work all day wearing protective clothing to keep from freezing. I asked a lot of questions and learned a lot about ice cores and how they look.

Building the models. We ended up building two identical full sized cores that matched a section of an actual ice core for scientific accuracy. Using clear acrylic tubes I poured clear resin in over 120 layers to match the image. I used experimented enough to create a chart showing how much stirring, how much resting and how much gel time was needed to match all the different bubble densities. A relatively clear layer along with a relatively cloudy layer of bubbles represents one year of ice build up. It took several weeks of pouring and curing the resin to get the core models built. One of them is now on display in the visitors center and has become a popular draw for tourists. The second one is used in the classroom and in scientific discussions about the cores themselves.

Medical Device | Scale Models for Marketing & Trade Shows | Biomet Pucks

Archetype 3D is a marketing display company. Not every display can be defined as a “model”. Biomet is a medical device company that specializes in providing doctors with surgical equipment for spine injuries. The make a lot of equipment in different categories and needed a way to easily and professionally display the pieces at their many trade shows. We designed and created these circular display pucks that are each custom built to hold all of these strange shapes while allowing the parts to easily be removed and replaced. They attend many trade shows at a time so we created five pucks in each design for use all over the country.
