The Most Popular Choice
Most customers opt for Level 3 when requesting models. It displays a great level of detail as it separates the terrain by land use, including roads, water, pavements, railways, platforms, pathways, greenspace and playgrounds. LOD3 models also includes trees for added realism.
Bespoke Service for Beautiful Presentations
If you wish to purchase a model of a shop front, building, street, stadium, or a city block that includes intricate façade details, such as windows, doors, glass, metal and concrete, then we’re able to do this as a bespoke service. This realistic imagery is ideal for pitches and presentations.
For Base Model Needs
Depending on your needs, you might choose a base model, as offered by LOD 1-2. LOD1 offers massing models that show accurate heights and proportions but minimal detail, with no functionality to separate the terrain. Whereas LOD2 has the same level of detail, but does allow you to separate the terrain and also includes trees.
Standard Turnaround Times
Our standard turnaround is within 3 working days. If the area you require isn’t on the map yet, we can still capture and deliver what you need at no extra cost to you, but it may take up to 6 working days. 24-hour turnarounds are also sometimes possible, please get in touch to find out more.
3D Printed Model
In order to give you a quote on 3D Printing, please let us know the size of the print/scale, whether or not you want to print in colour, and also what material you’d like us to use. Also how the model will be used – can the model be physically touched? This can be a health and safety concern, but is not a problem if the model will be placed in a display case.
