Make your case with a Solid Terrain Model

Solid Terrain Modeling developed and patented the automated process we use to make physical 3D models – with results unlike anything seen before. A full color aerial picture is printed directly onto a precisely machined terrain surface giving an accurate, true-to-life representation of a specified area. Text, lines, arrows, and other graphical elements can be added to the image to aid in presenting your case. Solid Terrain Models are durable, touchable and can usually be produced within 10-15 business days.

Why you want a Solid Terrain Model for your courtroom presentation:

  • Jurors relate better to visual aids.
  • One of the best ways to clearly and simply illustrate topographic information.
  • Models can help you capture and hold the attention of your audience while you make yourself understood.
  • Computer models can be difficult to interact with and not everyone feels comfortable that they understand what they are seeing.
  • The presence of a solid model during a hearing or trial is a constant reminder to everyone that you are knowledgeable and prepared with easy to understand exhibits that will give everyone the confidence to reach an informed decision.
  • Custom architectural features can be added when needed.
