Architects save 95% on their model making costs

When some architecture firms knocked, Ponoko jumped — and in the process we discovered a breakthrough service for high quality architects.

Previously architects either made models in-house by hand (cheap and cheerful) or outsourced them to professional model makers (expensive and shiny). But they found the best of both worlds with Ponoko’s online model making service.

To get their model precision made, they simply uploaded their digital design files to the Ponoko website and selected their desired materials to receive an instant online price for the model. It was then made on-demand and shipped, ready for self-assembly.

The result was a high quality model at more than 50% less time and 95% less cost than typically involved.

So if you have a model making project you can find out more by contacting Ponoko [email to service-at-ponoko-dot-com].

Or you can get started right away – get an instant online price to make and ship your model to you.

    Hey hey all… I’m not sure how this is different from the regular Ponoko service. Is this a model made with laser cut materials, or some other process? When I clicked the link, it took me to my Ponoko account, where I couldn’t find model-specific information. By models, do you mean a digitial 3D model, or the finished model created from laser cut pieces made from 2D vector graphic software?

    I am working on a whole village so I can see the value of Ponoko for Architects, my only question is what took them so long ;-)

    Howdy … these are small scale models of architect’s creations (buildings, landscapes and other structures) made using the typical Ponoko process. As soon as we get permission to show some off, I’ll post them here – the thing stopping us right now is project confidentiality between architects and their clients.

    [...] installations isn’t impossible for a designer just beginning to make their mark. And as previously mentioned, laser cutting is great for architectural models like L.A.’s ‘Pause/Play’ [...]
