Physical model to demonstrate output efficiencies in electricity substations
Cutaway Model for the Energy, Oil & Gas Industry
Sonobex, a Loughborough University spin-out and specialist in noise reduction technology, challenged design agency Cube3 to come up with a new cutaway model substation design that would enable efficient attenuation of low-frequency noise output.
After 3D modelling a substation and generating a design concept for the outer wall, the enclosure was then cut away to reveal the 3D construction within. Although developments in Computer Aided Design allows us to explore a 3-dimensional world on screen through photographic quality renderings, sometimes there’s nothing that compares to a physical model. To bring the design concept to life, Cube3 asked Paragon to produce the scale model of the structure.
The relatively simplistic visual, destined for Sonobex’ exhibition displays received great accolade from Cube3.
“Once again Paragon delivered a quality display model on time and at a good price. This was a time pressure job as the model was being used as part of an exhibition display for our client. Well done on completing this in the short timescales requested!”
