3D Model by Kaldede

A highly detailed and accurate model of The Great Wall of China.
File includes everything seen in preview images: four towers, guard posts, wall segments, and terrain. Each format contains identical geometry and layout as seen above. Guard posts and roofs can be selected separately from tower segments. Materials included.

All details are fully modeled out for closeups with clean and smooth meshes, no bump mapping used. Rendered in Maya though similar results can be easily obtained in any software package.

Attention to detail and accurate construction makes this highly rated model ideal for closeups and print work.

History:

*The Great Wall was recently voted as one of the New Seven Wonders of the World in 2007

The Great Wall of China is a series of stone and earthen fortifications in China, built, rebuilt, and maintained between the 5th century BC and the 16th century to protect the northern borders of the Chinese Empire during the rule of successive dynasties. Several walls, referred to as the Great Wall of China, were built since the 5th century BC, the most famous being the one built between 220 BC and 200 BC by the first Emperor of China, Qin Shi Huang. That wall was much further north than the current wall, built during the Ming Dynasty, and little of it remains.

The Great Wall is one of the existing megastructures and the world's longest human-made structure, stretching over approximately 6,400 km (4,000 miles)[1] from Shanhai Pass in the east to Lop Nur in the west, along an arc that roughly delineates the southern edge of Inner Mongolia.


The Great Wall of China is built across the northern borders of China. It was built as a fortification to keep invaders from entering the Chinese borders. Several walls were built from the 7th century BC by ancient Chinese states; selective stretches were later joined together by Qin Shi Huang, the first emperor of China. Later, multiple walls were built and maintained by the successive dynasties. The most well-known wall was built by the Ming Dynasty.

Apart from defense, other purposes of the Great Wall of China were border control, allowing the imposition of duties on goods along the Silk Route.

The defensive characteristics of the Great Wall were further increased by the construction of watch towers, troop barracks, garrison stations, and signaling capabilities through the means of smoke or fire. It also served as a transportation corridor.

The frontier walls built by different dynasties have multiple courses. Today, the defensive system of the Great Wall is generally recognized as one of the most impressive architectural feats in history.

At FlatPyramid, we have developed a strikingly beautiful 3-D model of the Great Wall of China, a realistic and pleasant look that is appealing to the eyes. It is available in 3ds, max formats for commercial, non-commercial and editorial purposes. The design can be used in any project. It is one of the most detailed models of the Great Wall of China that you will come across on the web.

The model can be used with various applications such as animated movies, school & college projects, and architectural visualizations.
