Making the model 1) Imagineers spent a year designing, carving and painting a model that maintains a 1/2-inch to 1-foot ratio to the Cadillac Mountain Range. 2) The model was cut into sections, scanned in 3D and digitized into a computer program. The computer-rendered model was used to order the steel pieces in the superstructure and rebar for building the mountain range. Using the model to build the mountain allowed construction to overlap, saving time and money. For example, while welders attached rebar to one section, technicians applied plaster to another and painters were putting the base coat on yet another section.
