What is a model and why is it important?

  • A 3d model is a mathematical representation of any three-dimensional surface of object that is made using specialized software. It can be displayed as a two-dimensional image through a process called 3D rendering or used in a computer simulation of physical phenomena. The model can be physically created using 3D printing devices.
  • Models could be considered the defining medium of design and architecture; they are directly involved in the 3Dprinting workflow.
