Architectural Modelmaking

Jovin Lim Modelmakers provides design and construction services for physical three-dimensional scale models. Our studio will take your project from conception to installation, with fabrication of most components being completed in-house.

We are equipped to construct a range of highly detailed architectural models from conceptual massing models to competition quality models. Whether your project be for design development, development approval (DA), city planning or sales and marketing, we will work with you to explore and manifest your designs with a model that exceeds your expectations.

Our office is equipped with fast and powerful hardware to run 2D or 3D CAD and CAM software. Our team will first reconstruct your design in our modelling software to ensure the most efficient and sturdy construction, working with you to ensure all important design elements are represented.

Once the model has been designed, it is built in our very own workshop, which is fully equipped to support each model through all stages of the construction process. Our workshop boasts current CNC technology such as laser cutting, machining/routing and 3D printing. In addition, with facilities such as a painting booth, electronics station, vinyl cutting station, mouldmaking and casting station, and welding equipment, to complement our full woodworking shop, we are able to fabricate and construct most of the components of your model in-house.





We are proud to bring the digital fabrication expertise of Jovin Lim Modelmakers to other makers, architects, students and the general public with our new venture, Fabricate.

We offer small batch laser cutting and engraving of a wide variety of materials. Fabricated components are able to be shipped Australia-wide or picked up by appointment from our studio in Port Kennedy.

In addition, we also offer a Maker Service to help other makers realize their designs with the complement of our combined equipment and expertise.

We are excited at the prospect of working on new and different things so if you have a project in mind, please contact us to discuss it.

We can also provide optional features necessary for the transport and display of a model, including plinths, acrylic covers, and travel cases.
