For residential examples of detail you can see below and extrapolate to your particular needs, typical scale is 1"=16' (16th).
Massing Only - The Basic Model is a structural massing model integrated with the surrounding terrain. It comes with a standard bamboo base, laser-engraved with your logo and project information.

If you are sending 2D CAD - You will need to decide what scale you would like your model at, the level of detail you would like to depict and when you will need the model. We will send you a quote and take care of the rest.
If you are sending 3D CAD - You can save money and have greater control of your model if you are already drafting in 3D. If you already have the 3D file ready to go, send it over and we can discuss options for your model. If you are just starting the process and want to know more about drafting with 3D printing in mind, see our blog posts for tips and best practices so that you can maximize your gain with 3D printing.
