The 3D rendering industry is ever-changing! Catch up with the latest trends and incorporate them into your next project.
Modern rendering technology is important for when you want to do more than just show a building but also to be able to sell it. While it can be a challenge to win over stakeholders without a finished product, people investing in architecture know that they need to be flexible about concerns. Quell their misgivings with the right 3D rendering.
To ensure you convince them to buy into your project, follow these innovative trends that are working well in the 3D industry.
1. Animation is Huge
Watching a short movie can really bring to life a design. Whether you're in the world of product design, architecture, or web design, watching a video can show off the best of a design. In a 3D design, you can show off the capabilities of the rendering in a powerful way.
Walking or flying through the space allows viewers to see rooms and passages in a concrete way. 3D visualization that shows off all of the features of a design can better convey the atmosphere and ambiance of a design. Looking at flat images can't put the viewer in a space in the same way that an animation can.
In any architectural building, convincing stakeholders of the merits of a project is your goal. Impressing clients is much easier with 3D renderings than a series of blueprints and drawings.
Get them to see the expected results fully fleshed out without having to build a thing. With a 3D rendering, you can get approval, make quick changes, and let them voice specific suggestions on corrections to the design.
2. Give Virtual Tours
Virtual tours are another great way to make use of 3D renderings. These tours use sequential panoramic photorealistic images to create a 3D visualization of the whole space. Rather than virtual rendering, you get to render the whole space more realistically and offer a more familiar view of the space.
Virtual tours allow you to make things look real before they even exist. Virtual tours are usually interactive and with a mouse or touch screen, stakeholders get to "walk-around" the space and see in every direction.
You'll offer vivid images of a space as if viewers were standing inside your new project. They should be able to take a close look at architecture, materials, and decor elements.
Include some music and minimal text explanations to give a stronger impression. You want everyone to know what they're looking at a how they're facing at all times.
3. 3D Floor Plans are Impactful
Building 3D floor plans are one of the biggest new trends in 3D rendering. They give you the floor space from a birds-eye view and allow you to visualize an elaborate design from section to section.
Viewers get to see the visual presentation of a home' interior before it's built and dig into it in depth. While 2D floor plans have been in use for years, 3D floor plans bring so much more. It's easier to see how it'll look with furniture and decor inside each unit.
Heights make more sense to viewers when seen through a 3D floor plan. It's much easier to get excited about 12-foot ceilings when you can see them in 3D.
4. 3D Printing is a Winner
If you're able to 3D print models of a building, you can let investors put their hands on what you're talking about. Before 3D printing, it would take weeks to build a scale model, with lots of material costs and lots of manual labor.
Thankfully, now you can cheaply and easily produce models that have just as much resonance and take a fraction of the time. 3D printers can create complex models with a quick turnaround. After drawings are put through special software, the printer spits it out from top to bottom.
Materials include plastic, metal powder, and hydrogel. The whole prototype can be produced in durable materials in just a few hours.
5. Virtual Reality Is Powerful
If you really want to wow your clients, giving them a virtual reality tour is the best possible way. Since you might have to gather a bunch of people from different places into the same space, VR is a solution that works wonders.
Everyone related to the project can meet in a virtual reality space with a simple headset and they'll all see the same thing. The team can talk through their common digital space and then communicate VoIP.
This kind of communication allows for real-time commentary and flexibility. You can eliminate dozens of feedback cycles by using virtual reality.
If you're working on-site, you can get everyone into a much safer space than a construction site. You can have a real idea of what works and what doesn't when you point to what you talked about during your VR meeting.
While this technology can be pricey, it makes the whole process so much faster and easier than doing things on paper or via conferencing. When all stakeholders get to virtually stand in the space they're concerned about, they can share their concerns as specifically as possible without a lot of back and forth.
3D Rendering is Now Cheaper Than Ever
While 3D rendering used to be wildly expensive and building your 3D models could take an army, it's now possible to speed up turnaround when necessary. You can create competitive bids in days rather than weeks or months with the kind of 3D images that will get investors excited.
