Straight approach for 3D modelling system

  • Comment

An architect has designed a modular kit which he hopes will be ‘the next Lego’. Arckit, is the brainchild of Irish architect Damien Murtagh who designed it as a reaction to 3D computer models.

‘I thought there must be a way to use new technology to develop a reusable three-dimensional modelling system which clicks together and doesn’t require gluing,’ he said.

‘Eventually I came up with a modular system which can continually evolve, letting you build models of pretty much anything and everything.’

A basic set costs £89 and includes 220 components including wall panels, columns, roof trusses, floor slabs and stairs. It is being sold by Harrods, Barnes and Noble and Amazon.

While one comment on its YouTube video described it as ‘posh lego’, others were not so impressed, questioning its flexibility, the ability to adjust ceiling heights, and the lack of curvy walls. Ideal for designing a new school then.
