Ittyblox Unveils Collection of Miniature 3D-Printed Parisian Buildings

Netherlands-based Ittyblox has created yet another series of miniature 3D-printed buildings, this time featuring typical and iconic buildings and sites in Paris. Adding to their series of New York, London, and Chicago, among others, the new Parisian series follows suit as a 1:1000 scale model of customizable city blocks.

All of the models are printed in full color by Shapeways, and are designed to slide into rectangular and triangular baseplates to showcase the distinct character of Parisian architecture.

The new Ittyblox Paris set features shopping blocks, apartment blocks, an Embassy with a garden and subway staircase, a banking office inspired by the Société Générale Private, the Sainte Chapelle cathedral, and the famous Parisian tower St. Jacques within a park. Additionally, two canal plates can be placed together to simulate the Seine River.

In order to get the project off the ground, Ittyblox has created a Kickstarter campaign with a variety of rewards for backers. Learn more about, or support the project here.
