jbA is now pioneering the use of 3D printing throughout its design process. Using cutting edge 3D printing technology, we can create detailed 3D printed models made from PLA plastic. The models are created on the latest AirWolf 3D printer that enables us to print scaled models of buildings and internal rooms.Read more
At jbA we use 3D visualisations throughout the design process. Every project benefits from the creation of detailed 3D visualisations at some point in the design process whether it be initial planning shell models or photo realistic internal images.Read more
