While the concept of city planning is not a new one, the strategies that we’re using in modern society to create the cities of tomorrow are evolving along with technology. Decisions that are made when designing a city will have enormous implications for decades to come. Still, with the aid of 3D modeling capabilities, virtual technologies, a
3D printing was an exciting technology that burst onto the scene not too long ago, at first only housed in large universities and factories that could afford these immense and quite expensive machines that would take hours upon hours to print out a simple model that was created on a computer. Flash forward to now, and it is commercially availa
The advent of computers and modeling software unequivocally changed the construction, architecture, and design industries like never before. Where previously architects would use hand tools to draw, and mockup building, the new age of computerization meant that Building Information Modeling (BIM) systems were the new normal. Talented engineers
When 3D printing first burst onto the scene, it was the realm of high-tech engineers who were creating production models, rapid prototypes, and critical machining tools. However, a lot has changed in the 3D printing world over the past decade, including 3D printers becoming cheaper, smaller, and thus more accessible.
