Massing Models with Additive Manufacturing

Massing Models in FDM

We specialize in architectural printing and file conversions, and can produce accurate massing models from pre-existing Sketchup, Autocad, and Revit files. By adjusting thicknesses, cropping out extraneous buildings, and ensuring the files are water-tight, we can turn around durable, error-free prints without re-inventing the wheel.


Together with the rapid print speed of FDM , this makes it possible for us to provide massing models faster and more affordably than via traditional manufacturing methods. With the the largest FDM capacity in Western Canada, Forge Labs can offer turnaround times as fast as next day on most ready-to-print architectural models.

Colored Inserts

Looking to stand out? We can highlight key features with a wide range of colors in ABS and ASA.

Transparent Materials
For projects requiring backlighting or transparency, we recommend Accura Clearvue - like we used for this backlit display for Translink. The excellent clarity of Clearvue made it possible for complex animations to play underneath a model of the "city of the future".
