3D Architectural Scale Models

PREMIER3D are market leaders in creating and installing high-quality 3D Architectural scale models.

While exterior and interior renders are a great way to showcase the proposed design for one key area, PREMIER3D’s physical scale models are the ideal solution to show the placement of the building in the immediate surroundings. These models help people buying from the plan to visualise the concept and receive an understanding and insight into the context of where their dwelling sits in relation to others.

PREMIER3D Scale Models can assist:

  • Developers
  • Architects
  • Creative and Marketing Agents
  • Real Estate Agents
  • Government Agencies
  • Drafts People and other related sectors

What are 3D architectural Scale Models?

3D architectural models are a physical representation of a structure which is built to study aspects of an architectural design or to communicate essential design ideas.

They represent a small scale version of the project, which is essentially an exact copy but scaled down to a much smaller size.

3 Types of 3d Architectural Scale Models


Types of 3D Construction Models

Different types of construction models are used at different stages of a project’s design. The 3 mains types are Conceptual, Working and presentation.

Conceptual Models

These models are used at the beginning of a project’s design. These models are used to understand how a project may look in an environment, as well as the spatial layout and ratio of the project.

Working Models

These are used while a project is still in the design phase. Working models can help clients to see how architectural ideas are coming to life and the development of the project.

Presentation Models

These are the final type of building model, as they’re built after the designs have been completed. These models are built to scale to represent the project in its entirety. They not only include the buildings, but the landscaping and any other relevant details to the project.

The level of detail on these presentation models can be extremely important especially if a company needs to sell their plans to a client or to get approval from a governing body.

BENEFITS OF 3D architetcural scale MODELS

With 3D architectural scale models, you combine the precision of virtual 3D modelling with the tangibility of a physical object. They work well in marketing a building development whether that be the interior or exterior.

3 benefits to using 3D scale models include:

Better Representation of Designs

3D models allow you to see a built-to-scale representation of your projects.

Clients have an easier time visualising the design in 3D. It essentially brings the design to life, allowing clients to see the exact design how it will appear once the project is finished.

This is one of the major advantages of 3D modelling for engineering and architects as it provides an accurate depiction of what the finished project will look like.

3D models not only allow you to show off the general design of the project but can highlight certain design aspects of a building such as exterior paint colours, landscaping choices and interior design features such as floor plans, furniture and overall finishes.


effective marketing and project submissions

Wowing a client can be made easy with 3D architectural scale models. It helps them to easily visualise the project.

When selling a design to a buyer, a 3D model can get the quality of your designs across more effectively than a flat 2D drawing.

3D scale models can also help when submitting plans to governing bodies for DA approval. They are tangible which help people to understand the design completely which can really help to pitch your project. They make it easier for people that may not be so technically minded to understand.

errors can be caught in the design phase

Building 3D models can help you to catch costly errors before the construction phase starts, as they make errors much easier to see than a 2D drawing.  This can potentially save you a lot of money. You are also able to show the client both models which can make it easier for them to sign off on these changes as they can see the errors for themselves.


By taking the following specific files and using a preapproved model boundary, our PREMIER3D team craft our models from cut acrylic:

  • Plans in DWG
  • Elevations in DWG
  • Exterior finishes schedule
  • Landscaping drawing in DWG

All PREMIER3D models come with an acrylic case for protection, a road case for transportation and aftermarket services including cleaning and maintenance. Additionally, delivery is included for all models to Australian capital cities.


3D modelling comes with so many advantages and can assist developers, architects, creative and marketing agents, real estate agents, government agencies, drafts people and those in other related sectors.

PREMIER3D are an experienced team of 3D rendering specialists that help you bring your designs to life, which allows you to visualise your project and get a complete idea of the end product.
