summary The aim of the present paper is to describe a case study about the production of scale models of large urban areas with the use of digital prototyping techniques. Throughout the year 2008, the Laboratory for Automation and Prototyping in Architecture and Construction (LAPAC) was commissioned with the production of a scale model of the State University of Campinas´ campus. Laser-cutting and Selective Laser Sintering were used to produce the terrain and the buildings. The products that resulted from this research demonstrate that rapid prototyping processes are extremely helpful to produce scale models of large urban areas.
