3D printers for the Bureau of Engineering’s Architectural Division staff to utilize three dimensional (3D) printing technology to build architectural and engineering scaled physical models of conceptual design projects and for presentations to client Departments, oversight Commissions, and the general public. Engineering staff currently uses Autodesk AutoCAD and Revit for project conceptual design and construction document production. Autodesk is currently soliciting beta testing partners for its Ember 3D printer and its Spark 3D printing open source software platform. Engineering staff should be early adopters of Autodesk’s 3D program to be a leader in 3D architectural model making. Engineering’s Vision is to “To lead the transformation of Los Angeles into the world’s most livable city” Our vision statement is aligned with Mayor Garcetti’s Priority Outcomes and 3D printing will help us to achieve these goals.
