Architectural 3D rendering
3D graphics is a great tool to realistically render images for architectural projects. Visualization brings a design idea to life and introduces live objects that do not exist in reality.
Rendering is an integral part of creating a three-dimensional image. It allows getting a finalized image of a three-dimensional model. The entire visualization process consists of several stages, namely:
• Creating a 3D model;
• Creating an environment around an image;
• Light setting;
• Selecting an image angle;
• Setting up effects.
3D rendering is the final stage, which provides the opportunity to make an image as realistic as possible.
In architecture, this tool makes it possible to model a highly detailed object. Visualization allows getting a clear idea of a room design, surface texture, and other important details. When selling real estate, it helps to sell apartments or houses much faster.
Architectural 3D rendering allows demonstrating an object of any complexity and form in three dimensions:
• Residential and industrial buildings;
• Landscaping of a suburban area;
• Territory renovation;
• External and internal design;
• Detailing for interior decoration;
The main benefits of 3D rendering
Rendering targets at representing a graphic sketch of a three-dimensional model in a flat version. At its core, the process is similar to photography. The program for creating 3D graphics focuses the camera on an object. However, unlike photography, you can demonstrate an object from an advantageous angle, which a photographer unable to do. For example, it is possible to remove a tree in front of the building, show favorable weather, add or remove people from an image, and much more.
Designers and architects appreciate the value and affordability of this method. Now it became possible not to use drawings and models as they can create realistic models. The level of complexity depends on the customer’s expectations. It takes less time to create a 3D image than hand-made projects.
The main advantages of the technology are as follows:
• Creation of 3D graphics;
• High quality of work;
• Realism of the final project;
• Ability to create an object of any complexity
• High speed of implementation;
• Ability to make adjustments at any stage of a model creation;
• Effective utilization of working time.
Rendering in architecture
Special programs for 3D visualization allow designing a building of any complexity in detail. An image demonstrates the finalized building with consideration of all construction materials. You can see the front of the building, its interior, and landscape design.
Thanks to rendering, you can see the object’s surroundings or even the whole street. Using a program for creating a three-dimensional image, you can represent all the interior details. Thus, a customer gets a finalized project.
• Beam casting;
• Beam tracing;
• Rendering equation.
3D rendering has changed workflows in the architecture and construction industry. Now the traditional plans, maps, object layouts are complemented by realistic presentations or videos. Prototyping with the use of visualization is considered to be less financially costly and also saves time on project implementation. There is an opportunity to see the final result and make adjustments before the construction of a facility is launched.
Benefits of using 3D images in architecture
• Accuracy of measurements;
• Project documentation is created based on clarity;
• Ability to make corrections;
• Elaboration of details.
Architectural rendering helps a customer to get a clear idea of an object under construction, its textures and materials, the surrounding environment.
