Overview

Model makers craft three dimensional scale models that are used in a variety of situations. Model makers use information and preliminary designs or blueprints to bring an idea into reality. Often model makers create 3D models for architects, based on the architect's initial designs or blueprints. The model can help the architect evolve his project and see what needs improving. Model makers can also work on film sets as part of the special effects team. Essentially, model makers are the people who take an idea and make it into a three dimensional piece, in order to bring the design or concept to life. They are a vital part of the artistic and design processes in many different fields.
