Answers

  1. How much would my model costs?

    The price of the model depends on many factors such as scale, finishes, project status, delivery date ... It is impossible to establish a universal system for budgeting a model, however, if, for example, you send, in the case of a residential building, a general plan and elevations, and you describe how you imagine it, (realistic to sell, in white, in wood ...) within 24 hours we send you a budget and a possible delivery date. From here, we can specify and negotiate whatever you need. .

  2. How long does it take to build my model?

    As in the case of the prices, the time of construction of a model depends on various factors as well as the availability of the workshop that is responsible of the order. When doing a budget, we indicate a possible delivery date according to our workplan. In the practice, in most cases we can hold back some orders and bring forward the "urgent" requests without problems.

  3. What kind of information is needed to make my model?

    Upon acceptance of the budget, we will need all levels to enable a correct interpretation of the project and the qualities' memory. In the case of needing the colors control, they must be defined through the ral or pantone or any color sample.

  4. How will the finishes be?

    As the customer wants. If on our website there are no photos of projects that can serve as a reference, we provide comprehensive graphic information dossiers and we can also define the finish through graphic documentation provided by the client.

  5. I have yet to fully define the project, but I would like to ensure the delivery. Can we begin though the rest of the project will materialize later?

    In principle there is no problem as the model, in fact, is not definitely mounted till the final phase. In many cases, even after giving textures and colors.

  6. My project will be built in different phases. Can I do the same with the model?

    Yes, no problem. We keep the cutting files and, therefore, we are able to work even with a part of the project while the rest of the model is not in the workshop and implant afterwards the phase within the set.

  7. I’m doing a contest and will have little time to make a model, what can I do?

    Usually, in these cases, what we do is keep in touch almost daily with the client as if they were a member of the team and prepare the elements evolutionarily. In the end, the model is built in an "explosive" way in the last days. Obviously, this is not always possible and should be specified in each case.

  8. I’m in the draft stage and I need a previous model to “sell” the project, what can I do?

    As in the case of the construction by phases, the model can be delivered with provisional finishes. Sometimes this affects the vulnerability of the model, althought this can be resolved in the second phase of construction.

  9. I would like to make the model myself since I need it as a tool, but I don’t know which are the best materials for my project and I also may need some help to make some pieces, what can I do?

    No problem. If you want, we can make a proposal in this regard and, if necessary, guide you in the drawing of pieces. All this without any previous commitment or cost. We can also intervene promptly when you request it.

  10. I am far away and I’m not sure if I can count on Espai Model S.L. to make my model.

    Except for the slight delay that may involve the delivery, there is no problem. need not be any problem.The job tracking, even in close customers , is often done with the help of photographs, ideos and electronic means.

  11. I am a student and I need advice for making a model, how much will it cost?

    If you come to our workshop or our stores, we will help you with everything you need.You only will have to pay for the material that you use.

  12. What colors do I have to use when making a drawing with Autocad to be cutting by laser? What margins should I leave? What materials can be cut?

    We have an instruction sheet which explains how to prepare the file to be cut or engraved, as well as the supporting materials for laser cutting. If you have any questions, please contact us for assistance.
