Step 3. Architectural Model Sample Preparation and Confirmation

RJ Models will produce a portion of the sample during the model production to determine the display effect of the entire model.

Such as structure details, color match, texture, and lighting effect of the model to ensure the sample is consistent with your design philosophy.

Then continue the overall model production.

Step 4. Model production and progress report

When the model starts making, we will provide professional architectural model progress photos at regular intervals for you.

It is good for you to understand the latest situation of the model and the expected completion time, and to make sure the project goes well.

Therefore, you can see your architectural model with your own eyes and comment it directly.
