The company offers a complete solution which includes, full finishing capabilities; lighting and electrics; plinths and baseboards; and transport grade packaging.
Establishing the scale of an architectural model at the earliest possible stage is crucial. This involves taking into consideration the size of the finished model and the level of detail that is required. It is not always a case of scaling down the original CAD model. While 3D printing/additive manufacturing techniques and materials do offer unparalleled freedom of design, it is vital that the digital data dimensions for the scale model capture any fine detailing requirements and that they can be accommodated by the build process. Ogle can offer advice and support in this regard.
“When we approached Ogle Models we only had some drawings and an artist’s impression to convey the 'look and feel' of the proposed interchange concourse. However, Ogle brought to bear an impressive range of techniques and materials that helped bring the scheme to life. In addition, the people at Ogle are a joy to work with.”Soji Abass
