  • Industrial Scale Model Lights Up the Show

    Posted on July 25th, 2013 admin No comments

    For years designers have used lifelike scale models to demonstrate a new building project or large scale installation. The power of scale makes it easier to visualize the finished project before it begins. Making changes and describing details becomes easy and in many cases saves countless hours and dollars. A 3D representation is much easier for most people to understand and there is little need for collateral materials.

    When SPX needed a way to show the complex details of a system installation, they called upon CalCo to create a scaled-down representation of how this solution looks. Starting with a 3D file and some line drawings (see below), CalCo was able to recreate this virtual rendering in the real world, to a predetermined scale. With many of the feature components and solutions spanning multiple floors and rooms, removing some of the walls was going to be mandatory, and removing all of them it turns out, was even better. The model can be used at trade shows, customer meetings or wherever a demonstration of the system is needed

    As the display was developing, it became apparent that a solution would be needed to light up the shadowed rooms and further accentuate the details of the installation. The final model came in at around 25 lbs., and included a clear acrylic cover to provide maximum protection while on display.
