We are excited to announce that we will be beginning the process of updating the Fort Hays State University Scale Model that we created nine years ago.
Did you know? Today, there are approximately 45 buildings that are a part of Fort Hays State University’s campus. Since our model was made in 2012, there have been 8 new buildings added/are in the process of being added.
Then & Now
Originally presented to the university nine years ago, the massive 7-foot by 10-foot Fort Hays State University scale model also features an interactive computer monitor that allows viewers to light up different buildings and learn more information about FHSU’s campus. The model has been used as an asset to the university for years to recruit prospective students and faculty, while also serving as an important tool for new students orienting to campus. An invaluable visualization resource, the interactive model helps people keep up to date with all of the exciting new additions to campus as well.
With the amount of renovations that have been made to campus since 2012, the university has requested updates to the model to better represent all of the impressive improvements to campus. The original construction of the model took Global 3D Arts about three years, with nearly a thousand photos of the FHSU campus and its buildings used as reference to create the meticulously designed scale model. Before the model’s 10th anniversary, it will be completely updated for all to enjoy and see how much the campus has grown.

New scale model coming to you all the way from sunny Orlando, Florida! With its many palm trees and luxurious pool, the Sycamore Resort Scale Model has us feeling like we’re on vacation.
For this project, we had the opportunity to produce not just one, but TWO identical scale models for Primeland Development of their Sycamore Resort project in Orlando, which will be going into their sales offices in Kissimmee and Miami.
The Sycamore Resort Scale Model was a very special project for Global 3D Arts. Owner Dave Van Doren was able to deliver the models to Primeland Development’s sales team in their Kissimmee Sales Office and also see the project site where the Sycamore Resort is being built! If you happen to be in the market for a luxury condo near Disney World, these lovely ladies will take great care of you!
A huge part of what we do at Global 3D Arts involves learning about the story behind the piece, as each project that we do is unique and has a totally different story to tell. Our renderings, animations, and scale models can be used for so many purposes, but often they are used as tools to visualize the bigger picture and to educate.
Recently, we just finished up a special project for York County Solid Waste and Refuse Authority in York, Pennsylvania of a steam turbine in their facility. While working with them, we learned that the goal for this model is to facilitate their mission of educating the public about responsible waste management and how trash is turned into energy.
This model was special for us because we were able to branch out and do something unique outside of the realm of traditional architectural scale models.
As we ship off the Steam Turbine Model to go into the YCSWA’s Education Center, we come away having learned something new. We hope that this model will continue to tell its story and educate others about this important cause!
Monochromatic models show the true beauty of the model without multiple distractions of color. The main focus is the model itself!
We love a model with colors that POP, but our monochromatic models are a hit! They give a modern and unique feel. We can make your model any monochromatic color, white is the most requested but we have also used tan, red, green!
Here To Serve You! Our services are great way for a business to sell their designs to builders and investors! We specialize in animations, renderings and scale models. To see more of our services check out or website!

Nokia, Apple, Samsung, Motorola, all cell phones companies from previous years. But what is the feud behind Motorola and Apple? That’s the real questions. 10 years ago cellphones were making it big time, almost everyone owned a cell phone, it was easy access.
10 years ago Apple created allegations that other cell phones companies, such as Motorola had copied many features from Apple. If interested in knowing more about the Apple/Motorola lawsuit, click on the link below that mentions the lawsuit battle.

A Masonic Temple which is also known as a Masonic Hall , from the Freemasonry. Masonic Temple are a place for spiritual settings and rituals. Best known for a place of meetings. Today the Windsor Masonic Temple, located in Windsor, Ontario in Canada is still being used.
To step inside the Windsor Masonic Temple is to follow in the footsteps of the men and women (from Prime Ministers to Custodians, from Mayors to Musicians) that have, if only for an evening, called the Windsor Masonic Temple home.
The Windsor Masonic Temple is a Masonic home. It is also home to the cherished memories of our friends, neighbors, parents, and grandparents; memories formed through school dances and graduations, weddings and receptions, banquets and (yes) Masonic ceremonies.
Global 3D Arts has had the opportunity to create 5 mini replica models of the Windsor Masonic Temple.
For more information see our podcast with Square & Compass Promotions showing how this amazing model was built.
We have been grateful to create five models for the organization. Stay tuned for more masonic models!
