Client: Zaha Hadid Architects
We produced this stereolithography architectural model of a design for the Bogota International Convention Centre for Zaha Hadid Architects as a 3D printed part. The clear resin, which was polished prior to painting, allows light to be transmitted silhouetting the two-toned painted silver exterior.

Stereolithography Architectural Model making is a cutting edge technique that we at Amalgam have added to our range of tools used to produce the very best architectural models. In some cases (Such as this one) the 3D print forms the entire model – or at least a significant part of it. In other cases we simply use it to offer an affordable way to achieve what would otherwise be a complex and therefore costly geometry to produce. Stereolithography aside we also use our in-house Objet polyjet printer to produce highly detailed parts and Selective Laser Sintering or SLS to create high-strength Nylon components for our models.
