WhiteClouds will feature architectural models, as well as debuting a new porcelain-like product finish, at the International CES Trade Show, and the prime piece they’re featuring is the largest, most detail-oriented 3D printed architectural model they’ve ever created.

WhiteClouds_Casa_Fortunata-1 Located in the foothills of the Wasatch Front in Ogden, Utah, WhiteClouds print their detailed creations at their own dedicated production lab.

The WhiteClouds “Casa Fortunata” model boasts over 25 unique features such as cathedral style windows, fountains, verandas, archway arcading, and massive multi-level staircases.

It’s an architectural model for a client’s 35,000-square-foot home, and it’s packed with highly-detailed and unique features.

The finished piece is a 16” x 23” x 8” model which took more than 59 hours — and just under 2,000 layers — to complete on a ProJet 660 printer at a 1/8” =1’ scale.

Alongside the model, WhiteClouds is also debuting a new, porcelain-like finish which they say not only increases the strength of 3D prints, but also provides “a glass smooth finish to full-color sandstone parts” to enhance colors and give the finished object a glossy sheen. The company says the porcelain-like finish is “perfect for figurines and entertainment models.”

Both the model and their new finish will be on display this week at 2015 International CES at WhiteClouds’ booth (#71918 in Tech West, Level 2, of the Sands Expo).

Formed in 2013, WhiteClouds is a 3D printing and 3D visualization service company that delivers realistic models of any design. The company boasts a group of a dozen 3D Systems and Stratasys printers, and for architects and builders, WhiteClouds say their work allows clients to see a model of a project before it’s built, and in realistic and minute detail.whiteclouds

The WhiteClouds design team say they specialize in making 3D design files into finished products from rubber-like, plastic, resin, and sandstone materials.

WhiteClouds are taking their place in the 3D printing revolution by designing and printing some incredibly detailed models from a variety of materials. This project, an architectural model for a client, is just one of the many the company has put out in the last couple of years. Check out more photos of the finished model below.
