A scale model is most generally a physical representation of an object that maintains accurate relationships between all important aspects of the model, keeping in mind design aesthetics and concept of the product. Expresing ideas through words are difficult. To make other people understand and turning ideas into a reality a model is important.
Miniature models are necessary when complexity, high investments, language barriers, limited space or hazardous conditions are the factors, or if there is a possibility of misunderstanding or misinterpretation the most familiar scale models represent the physical appearance of an object in miniature.
Scale models are used in many fields including engineering, architecture, product designs, defense equipments, ship building, etc. While each field may use a scale model for a different purpose, all scale models are based on the same principles and must meet the same general requirements to be functional. The detail requirements vary depending on the needs of the clients.
To be a true scale model, all relevant aspects must be accurately modeled, such as material properties, aesthetics so that common man also will be able to relate to the product design and concept. Scale models help to clear the doubts of designers, engineers and most importantly end user. It is a 360 degree visualization tool which helps to build up client’s interest, arrest costly errors,
Advantages of Scale models
1) Reduce cost
2) Meet the manufacturing schedule.
3) Good communication tool between designer and engineers.
4) Provides excellent visual appeal to a project for those assuring first impression.
5) Helps bring to notice any errors in the design that would detrimental in actual creation of the problem.
Through the model, the client gets a precise idea of how the finished product would appear. This eliminates any confusion or scope for doubt that can prove costly especially when dealing with large scale or costly ventures.
A model is the visual basis of a project for the Project Engineer. This is where the visualization of the project begins. Using the model’s scaled down representation as direct reference; the engineer begins building the actual product.
