This modern-day castle is fit for royalty and features a grand salon, theatre, and indoor pool. The full-color architectural model, modeled by Anthony Horsley, shows the fine architectural details in the railings, ornate eves and exterior stone. Anthony used Revit to model the majority of the home, but finished it in Maya. Anthony modeled the home using elevation renderings and images of the floor plan. The modelling took about 46 hours.
The model home was 3D printed on a ProJet 660 by 3D Systems. This 3D printer creates parts in full-color, sandstone-like material, using powder jetting technology. After the model was printed, it was excavated from the powder, blown clean, and infiltrated with a superglue-like bonding agent.
