“Make sure you visualize what you really want, not what someone else wants for you.”- Jerry Gillies; this thought led to the development of Architectural 3D Modeling Services, Architectural 3D Rendering Services and Architectural walkthrough’s. All these services are a part of Architectural Visualization services . Revit and 3d s max can be used in Revit Modeling Services, Architectural 3D Rendering services and Architectural Visualization services respectively which used for developing renders and creating Architectural Walkthrough’s were developed to support the 3D Visualization stream .
Earlier architectural drawings were limited to complex 2d drawings sets which could be understood only by Architects, Drafters, Engineers or Technicians. Someone who is a layman and not within this industry may not understand such 2d CAD drawings. Architects felt difficulty in sharing their thought processes or design ideas with the non- architectural clients or owners. As a result owners felt at risk investing in a project where the output was uncertain.
To end this uncertainty AEC came up with Architectural Visualization Services that includes Architectural Revit Modeling services, 3d Rendering services and moving simulations.
Revit Modeling services help develop the 3D Models representing building structure of the project before construction. These Architectural 3D Models can be created using AutoCAD, 3D Max, Rhinoceros, Google Sketch up, Zbrush etc. These Revit 3D models are not very photorealistic they do not illustrate colors, lighting or any photorealism e.g. lightings, outdoors, landscape, gardens etc. Then 3d Rendering Services evolved. Architectural 3d Rendering gives 3D realistic effect to the project so that people can easily identify with them.
Architectural 3D Rendering is a process which transforms 3D wireframes to photorealistic rendered models. Rendering artists use softwares such as 3D Max studio, Revit, Maya, AutoCAD architecture, Sketch Up and Rhinoceros. 3D Rendering Services are prominently used by Architectural and interior firms for marketing purposes.
A completely rendered Architectural 3d model can provide you a photorealistic views for any project. Further Architectural walkthrough services can give you a feeling of presence within an infrastructure without it being constructed.
Architectural walkthrough’s are like short animation movies which can be used for presentation and marketing. As these Architectural Walkthroughs provide an experience similar to “walking” through the project they are called Architectural Walkthrough’s.
Many organizations or companies take help of Revit Modeling Services, Architectural 3D Modeling services , Architectural 3D renderings and Architectural Walkthrough as they easily represent complex 2d cad drawings in a way a common man or layman easily understand. Many won’t prefer developing these walkthrough as it consumes lot of time. But still these walkthroughs are in the favorites list of clients and customers participating in Architectural projects.
Following services fall under Architectural 3D Services :
– Architectural furniture renderings
– Site modeling and rendering
– Spines and dentures
– Virtual 360 panorama view
– Coffer ceilings and moldings
