Microscape scans the world from the air and 3D-prints detailed models that capture the sculptural beauty of cities, towns, and individual buildings. Microscape models make incredibly distinctive gifts, decoration for home or office, and mementos of the most important moments -- and places -- in our lives.

What Our Customers Say About Microscape
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
"I just wanted to let you know the package was delivered today – right on time. She is going to lose her mind when she sees it – it is so much more interesting and impressive and pretty in person. Also – kudos on the packaging method your guys came up with – easily the most impressively, creatively and effectively packaged item I’ve ever received. Thank you so much for everything. As soon as I give it over and she hangs it/displays it, I’ll snap a photo and share it on your FB. Thanks a million – no idea how I’m going to top this next year."

"I just wanted to thank you for getting the tile to my sister. She is thrilled with it, and now can take a piece of her neighborhood with her when she moves."

"09-E, The Empire State Building arrived to the UK safe and sound, thanks! My fiancée will love it. This will be (one of) my wedding present(s) to her. Two years ago I proposed to her on top of the ESB and this week we will fly back to NYC and get married there. So, this model will mean much more to us than something pretty on our coffee table."

"Most models you find on the web are less than convincing and quite kitschy, so I've been pretty excited to learn that your Microscapes are both incredibly detailed and affordable at the same time. They're very sophisticated, high-end quality products and definitely great pieces of art."
