Application of Rapid Prototyping Technology in Urban Planning and Architectural Model
On the basis of discussing the superiority of architectural model applied in urban planning and architectural design, the defect of traditional architectural model was analyzed, and the theory of rapid prototyping technology was introduced. Architectural model flowchart for urban planning and architectural design based on rapid prototyping technology was put forward. And the realization for the flowchart in computer was also drawn. With two architectural model examples being applied, it was shown that the model based on rapid prototyping technology has great advantages in urban planning and architectural design.
