Maketarna is a scale model workshop based in Maribor, Slovenia (EU).
It started in 2020 with the idea of a workshop specialised in making scale models from recycled and biodegradable materials.
With the help of CZK (Centre for Creativity), EU regional development fund and Republic of Slovenia we have launched the service in september of 2021.
We make models of various scales and sizes for architects, artists, cultural institutions, collectors, crafts workshops, industrial designers, landscape architects, model makers, municipalities, product designers, students, urban designers, urban planners and others.
For model making we use modern technologies (3d printing and laser cutting) in combination with hand craftsmanship (plaster moulding/coating or woodworking) to provide best results. Our cost calculator allows costumers to get price estimations of making based on uploaded STL (stereolithic) models and desired finishing.
Our goal is to create a modern production workshop with low environmental impact. We are experimenting with materials that are recyclable or biodegradable – while durable enough for the purpose of model making. We have plans for testing some natural materials as well – ie. clay.
Our aim is to reduce the environmental impact by:
We are constantly looking for new possibilities and ways to improve our service.
