3D-printed model of the Super Bowl stadium

Miami-Dade Police enlist students at FIU to create a 3D-printed model of the Hard Rock Stadium to help prepare for the Super Bowl.

Miami-Dade Police Department (MDPD) has used the Hard Rock Stadium model—which also splits into cross-sections—since November 2019 for table-top sessions ahead of the event on Sunday, February 2nd.

Created by students in the College of Communication, Architecture + The Arts at FIU, the four-by-five feet (1.2-by-1.5 meters) mockup details bleachers, hallways, exits, rooms, and support beams in the 65,000-seat stadium.

It has allowed the force to become better acquainted with the structure, and prepare safety procedures and plans where to deploy officers for the major American football event. The model will also be used by the police for future activities like music concerts.
