Architectural Visualization: a Closer Look at the Basics

While this is a topic that has quite an age to it, it is ultimately better to still address it. Today, we will be talking about architectural visualization and its basics.

What is ‘Architectural Visualization’?

This is normally refers to the end result of an artist’s sketch of a design of a building or a home before it is approved or built. When you describe your ideal home, it is often normal to make use of general terms like ‘big windows’ or ‘wooden floorings’. While this is still a rather abstract idea, an artist or an architect makes use of those clues in order to bring forth a more concrete representation of that idea.

They do this by jotting down your cues and clues and build an image—normally on paper (as a start). For many of us who have architectural roots, many of our first architectural visualizations were placed on bar napkins. After all, you need to jot down inspiration before it flits away.

There are different forms that architectural visualization has taken through the years. Here are some of them:

Sketches or 2D images

This is the most basic form of architectural visualization. These refer to sketches or drawings that an artist, an architect, or even a builder will make or commission to bring forth an idea or image. While it can be a good start off point, it is notoriously difficult to sell towards buyers. This is primarily because there is so much information that is lacking.

3D images or scales

These are what you may normally see being used today. These are normally a photo-quality rendition of the end product. They are often used to promote the ‘over all’ effect of the vision. What is great about 3D scales is that they will provide a pretty general idea of how large the project can look and how much space is allotted within.

End Notes

Architectural visualization is something that we have to thank for the many fantastical buildings that have been built in the last twenty to thirty years. Architectural visualization has come a long way from being something that is sketched down on a napkin on a bar.

When the product being sold is real estate, having visual representation of the finished building, home, or room is better than just using blueprints or words. 2D models, while were widely used back then, do not exactly capture the interest and can come off as disingenuous when translated by a buyer. In order for a better translation of the concept to what the finished product should ideally look like, using a 3D model would be better.

If you were to choose which mode of architectural visualization was better, which one would you pick: 2D or 3D?

Home Planning: Why You Should Get Your Ideas 3D Rendered First

Ideas in one’s head are often a lovely place to visit. After all, pretty much everything is possible there. However, when it comes to planning one’s home, it is ultimately better to have your ideas 3D rendered first. Let us explain.

Planner’s Bliss

When it comes to planning out one’s home, the land of fantasy can be hard to deviate from. After all, it does not really cost anything to keep adding or removing details from the dream home.

Cold Hard Reality

Once a future home owner has spoken to an architect and their artist, the dreams (while still in existence) will eventually meet potholes in the road. There are, after all, several things that are factored into the home planning:

  • Budget
  • Location
  • Materials
  • Permits

These are often seen as roadblocks but some. In actuality, they are the very foundation of a future home. They are the guidelines that will help the idea bloom into what it was envisioned to be.

In planning a home, the translation from vision or dream into something that you see before your very eyes is a must. While the plans can be laid out via the blueprints, they can come off as something that is disjointed or unreal for the home owner.

It is only through a carefully made and wholly accurate depiction of the dream home that a connection can be made. This is normally done through an artist’s sketch based on the descriptions given by the home owner.

In today’s world, however, that can come off as extremely limited. After all, a drawing is still something that is on the realm of imagination. Using 3D graphics or a 3D rendering service to bring the image to life is a wholly more realistic way to showcase the vision.

Having something in 3D will allow for a more real allocation of the budget, the location, the materials, and even the whims of the owner.

When a home owner sees their ‘dream’ on a 3D scale, it is easier to determine if it is something they the truly want—all before the ground is even broken. This can save a home owner from massive heart break and even fees for any additional renovations.

End Notes

Having an actuation of your ideas is a good step to take when it comes to planning out your home. The entire concept of planning out a home is a process that many future homeowners do not expect. There has been a rather unrealistic set of expectations that come with planning out a home. Having a plan or a goal mapped out through 3D rendering is a great way to have a better and realistic idea of what you can actually achieve.

Just make sure that you go with a rendering company or firm that you can rely on. Do you think it is wholly important to get a planned home rendered in 3D first?

Render Me Good: 2 Reasons Why 3D Rendering is Important Today

Welcome to our first ever post! We are so excited to get started! As you may be aware, this site is primarily focused on the topic of 3D rendering at an affordable cost. What a lot of people have come to wonder through the years is: what IS 3D rendering and why is it something that is important?

We hope to address these questions today.

What is 3D Rendering?

What is 3D Rendering - Render Me Good: 2 Reasons Why 3D Rendering is Important Today
In its strictest definition: is the process of transforming something that is a normally crude model and fully bringing it to life on a digital scale. This is a highly creative process and requires highly skilled individuals.

Why is 3D Rendering Important?

When it comes to the concept of 3D rendering, there are a lot of fields of professions that benefit greatly from it. So when we thought about it carefully, we managed to come up with two big reasons as to why 3D rendering is still important today.

Visual Execution

For the fields of architecture, chemistry, and even medicine, having visual representation of your vision or end product is important. While it is often easy to discuss ideas, having a clear and final vision is often different and difficult to obtain. Having someone who can do a very realistic and accurate depiction of what the artist or the client wanted to bring forth.

Cost Effectiveness

In terms of design and the many instances where redesigns are necessary, it is pretty much normal to use up a lot of material. This is particularly true if an artist’s makes use of paper to sketch out a depiction of their client’s vision. Having a 3D rendering of the styling helps to drive down the costs that come with the job of coming up with a design. All that is needed is smart software and the necessary hardware to do changes as needed.

End Notes

3D rendering is a job that requires precision and careful execution to be effective. When you really think about it, why do YOU think that 3D rendering is a service that continues to be important?
