Here at WhiteClouds, we have 3D printed several architectural models. One of those models includes a 3D printed French Chateau home that our designer, Kyle Gifford, 3D modeled and printed. Gifford designed the model using Maya software.

Home Features

This French Chateau is fit for royalty and features 21 rooms, including 7 bedroom suites, 9 full and 2 half baths, grand reception rooms, upper and lower verandas, and a walk-out basement.

This mansion features a 2-story entrance foyer and French limestone flooring. A 2-story great room has a soaring ceiling, floor-to-ceiling windows, and a limestone fireplace. There is a library with a coffered ceiling, fireplace, and mahogany shelves. The chef’s kitchen has premier appliances, a customized island, and a family area with a fireplace.

The main level has a cherry-wood billiards room, office, guest suite complete with full bath, two bathrooms, and heated garage. The upstairs has the master suite with a fireplace with sitting room and balcony, and four additional bedrooms. The lower level includes a family room, media room, wine cellar, and second kitchen. There is also a gym and pool changing room. The grounds are 2 acres with park-like landscaping and a pool.

Other Notes: Unlike most of our architectural models, this one has actually been built. It sits in Alpine, New Jersey. The home took 42 hours to 3D model and used 1578 cm3 of material. The real-life version of the home is 14,000 square feet.

All of the stone and roof slates were laid by hand. Plans were not available for the home so the model was built entirely from looking at pictures.
