Understanding Industrial model-making
services and its benefits to industries

Industrial structures like a production or factory, plant, equipment and machinery are highly complex in nature and require precision designing and development.
The conceptualization of these designs (factory and machinery) starts on paper (computers nowadays). Then the design is converted into the working or non-working industrial scale model by the industrial model makers before the actual work on the final project is started. This is where the ‘Industrial model making’ comes into the picture.

Industrial models can be developed for cement plants, nuclear plant, milk-processing units, factories layout, machinery, farming, solar plants, warehouses, smart industries, food processing plant, automotive, production units, Power plant, water treatment plant, Oil and gas plants, transformer, sewage water treatment plant, power rid, GI Substation or any other kind of industry.

Converting a vision into an industrial model

Industrial scale model making is like storytelling. It is a first step towards giving life to the vision of a huge project like a manufacturing plant, a production facility, or a food processing plant.

A model helps in the explanation of implications, design viability, ergonomics, function, aesthetics and proportions.
Industrial model coming to life:
Once the final drawings of a project like a site plan, GA drawings, and elevation are received. The drawings are scaled-down as per the expected size or the scale of the model. An experienced and skilled draftsman prepares the drawings for the laser cutting machine to cut all the elevation and plane in precise dimensions and finish. The skilled model maker then assembles all the laser cut plans and build – up as per the provided drawings. Then the assembled model is spray painted as per the shared color scheme by a painter. The landscape team gives life to the model by adding road, parking, human figures, greenery, cars, suitable trees, shrubs, etc. Then to add to the aesthetics of the model, lights inside the structures, streetlights and gardens are added by the lighting experts. In the end, the carpenter team creates a model base, podium, and acrylic or glass enclosure for the model protection. Now the model is ready for delivery to its destination.
Depending upon the requirements of the client, the model could be scaled down or made full scale; or even scaled up to magnify the essential features of a tiny part.
The interactive elements such as traffic movement, running machinery, lighting, rising smoke, rushing waters, etc. highlight the important events in the operating cycle and attract the attention of the client.
The model can be made more detailed and captivating by adding moving parts, removable roofs, open-closed views, terrains, landscaping. The models can be developed into working models that show the entire working of the prominent sections of the industrial layout.
The consumer will be more engaged and left with a lasting impression the more detailed and engaging the model is.
The materials that are used by industrial model makers.
The industrial model makers use various materials that help in achieving the expected shape and design are industrial grade acrylic, PVC, HIP, ABS rode, PVC pipes, metal rode, acrylic pipes and any other suitable material.

The helping hand of technology

One of the most well-known technological development that has taken place in this field is the ‘3D printing laser machine” also known as additive manufacturing. This technology makes model-making cost-effective as the development time and labour cost are reduced. Industrial-scale model makers like Maadhu Creatives, a leading industrial scale model maker in Mumbai, (India) utilize their in-house technologies to help overly complex designs to be recreated accurately.

Benefits of Industrial model-making

  • The model helps the creators, designers, the company, and other stakeholders to visualize the expected flow of activities in a manufacturing/production unit at one glance.
  • The customer or the investor does not have to wait for the final project to be ready to understand its full working potential. They can watch and understand the entire process much earlier and take an informed decision.
  • These industrial models help the companies in demonstrating the unique features of their projects in meetings, exhibitions, and trade shows to potential clients and investors in a simple and visually appealing way.
  • The smaller models or the scaled-down models can be easily handled in exhibitions or tradeshows, transported hassle-free, and still convey the desired details.
  • The model is the cost-effective solution for the exhibitors, as huge, expensive real machinery or plant does not need to be carried at the exhibitions. The participants save on transportation, installation, uninstallation charges for the same. The miniature model is enough to present the machinery or plant at the exhibition.

With rapid industrialization, the need for industrial model-making services has increased. Models such as Architectural Model making, Exterior Model Making, Interior Model making, Engineering Model Making, Product and Prototype Model making, Warehouse Model Making, Site plan model making, Marine models, Piping models, Block Model Making, Study model making, etc. are in demand in other industries.
