09.1 bogzalogoExploring the Wonders of 3D Printing and More!

The Round is thrilled to announce our newest Tenant, BOGZA. Timothy Bogza founded BOGZA in 2010. The firm produces illustrations and animations for clients working in architecture, interior design, master planning and urban design.

BOGZA is currently expanding into new markets including trial animation and 3D printing.

What is 3D Printing

For years, architects have used sophisticated drafting programs like Revit and ArchiCAD to create realistic 3D simulations of their projects. Unfortunately, when these architects prepared to show their work to waiting clients, they were forced to use flat paper-and-ink models and a lot of words to describe their projects. 3D printing technologies hope to change all that, allowing architects to move directly from drafting to holding a fully dimensional model in their hands.

3D printing begins with a 3D drawing made in a computer. The printing program then cuts that 3D drawing into very small, very thin horizontal sections, and each section is printed and stacked, one on top of the other. Most architectural 3D printers use paper, but some printers also accept metal, plastics or even ceramic. When the printing is complete, the model is a freestanding work of art.

3D printing is also relatively inexpensive. While it might take a craftsman days in order to build a model to scale, a printer might be able to spit out a completed project in a matter of hours! 

Q: Timothy, why did you move your headquarters to The Round?

My goal was to find a larger and affordable creative space that also offered other necessary qualities to suit the company’s needs. The Round proved to be an accommodating location for both staff and clients in terms of convenience and community.

Q: What were you looking for in your new space?

The Round had several elements that made it an ideal location to headquarter our company, but I especially appreciated that it had a solid balance of modern influence, community, and accessibility. It’s exceptionally close to public transit and near a main highway which provides easy access for staff and clients while simultaneously offering a community-oriented atmosphere.

Q: How was the transition into The Round?

SKB (the local real estate private equity firm who owns The Round) was wonderful to work with. They saw our vision and supported us through the whole transition process.

Tim also noted that he is one of the few established firms operating on both a local and national scale within the Portland-Metro area that specializes in architectural 3D printing.

Congratulations Tim and the whole team at BOGZA! We love having you in The Round community.
