3D Visualisation as the root

3D visualisation is in some ways the same as Architectural Visualisation, both methods are the Architect’s way of communicating with the client. It serves as the medium to make the client understand and “see” what the project will look like even before building it; instead of making the client understand difficult technical words, visualization is used. The only difference between the two methods is that 3D visualisation concentrates on presenting 3D presentations whereas architectural visualisation can tackle different attacks on impressing the client.

3D Visualisation Options

Opting for the 3D Visualisation presentation for your client will leave you with two options, while the obvious choice would be the latter; some still opt for the first option.

  • Textured and Shaded

Textured and Shaded 3D presentations are the base of all presentation, even the rendered versions start from the textured and shaded ones. Some still pick this kind of presentation to retain the simplicity of the presentation, since this option is simple with just shades and shadow to give it a little life.

  • Rendered

Rendered presentations are the final product of every 3D presentation; this is where a normal 3D model is rendered, given colors and environment. 3D renderings are often so realistic that it can be blended with an actual photo. More Architects opt for this option more than the textured one.

3D Rendering Types

3D rendering is a process where a 3D model is given colors, depth and a realistic look to it, to be able to attract more clients. There are two kinds of rendering types that are typically being used today:

  • Non-photorealistic Render

This kind of 3D render is often used in object renderings, wherein an object does not necessarily have to have a background environment. Like for example, the rendering of a sphere, a sphere can be rendered in a non-photorealistic way because even if the sphere is in a plain background, it will still be effective.

  • Photorealistic Render

Photorealistic kind of 3D rendering is often used in rendering house models or 3D homes, since the houses have to have a distinct background environment where it is a great impact to the rendering if it placed in a plain background. And sometimes in photorealistic renders, real actual photos are used for its background. A photo realistic render is designed to give the maximum detail the eye can focus on and appreciate in a matter of seconds.
