ARRK Australia and New Zealand offer a new technology for the creation of architecture 3D physical models. The new building design of the Melbourne theatre company (MTC) theatre at Melbourne’s Southbank Boulevard has incorporated the new technology. ARM used the 3D printing technology to showcase the building’s unique design.
ARM commissioned ARRK Australia and New Zealand to build a rapid prototype model deploying advanced 3D printing technology on Objet Connex500 3D printing system.
ARM recently sent a batch of rapid prototype models to be displayed at the Australian exhibition at the Venice Architecture Biennale. According to ARM, the 3D printing technology allows them to print multiple materials simultaneously on the Objet Connex500. The design for the MTC involved an optical illusion that relies on the contrast of materials. ARM can now reproduce the impact of this effect with rapid prototyping. The durability of the model also allows them to take it to clients or send off to exhibitions without worrying if it is going to make it in one piece.
ARRK Australia and New Zealand’s rapid prototyping technologies enable the creation and viewing of 3D models quickly. Rapid prototyping is a digital modelling process that generates quick prototypes by constructing an additive layer-by-layer process that is driven by 3D CAD data.
