Case Study:

3D Printing Project for Crossrail – Bond Street



  • Who: C412 Bond Street team at BFK
  • What: 3D printed BIM model of London’s Bond Street Crossrail station
  • Tech: ProJet 660Pro


INITION was approached by the team at C412 Bond Street to produce a physical model of their BIM data for the yet to be built Crossrail Station at Bond Street.


Using the data provided to us, we 3D printed a complete segment of the station scaled down to fit an A4 piece of paper. The model was then installed on display in the reception at 75 Davies Street.


The C412 Project Field Engineer, Sandy Webster, said of the project, “This is a great example of what BIM modelling can do to help us see the end goal of the project in a tangible way. The model was produced to see if 3D printing could provide a useful tool for visualising what we are building in the physical form. So far the results have been very impressive and we may look to produce further models.”

Jay Short, New Business and Sales Director said “The use of 3D printing for BIM applications is one that is being explored more and more by those in the A/E/C market. It is a privilege to work on such a high profile project such as Crossrail and we will look forward to hopefully building this relationship over the coming months.”
