3D Printers: A visualization Aid for Stakeholders
Using 3D printers to study the design for renovations helps show the configuration, space and detail of a project in progress. Our team developed the concepts for improved circulation within a station by connecting the platforms and mezzanines. We made a digital CAD model for a small portion of the key interface and were able to adjust the CAD model for our 3D printer. The size and scale were printed to show actual steps and railings, and the final product gave stakeholders an idea of what the project would look like in the end before construction even started.
