A photorealistic rendering, like the example above, is similar to a photo and often used for marketing purposes.

How has architectural design changed in the last 50 years? The primary difference is rather than hand drafting and tedious model building to express our designs we now build computer generated models using Building Information Modeling (BIM) software. This is a great tool for not only designers but also for clients to better comprehend the design.

Cartoon models allow us to present in 3D and work on the fly in meetings to make adjustments. The next step in 3D development is photorealistic rendering. This means that an image similar to a photograph is created with realistic materials and entourage, including plants, people, etc. to create an accurate image of how the project will look. These images take more time to develop than cartoon views but are often used for marketing and sales ahead of the final product being constructed. A3G can provide the full scope of 3D design services and every project is completed using the latest in BIM software.

Here’s a summary of the benefits you will experience from using 3D design services:

Ideas don’t get lost in translation. Have you ever had someone describe something to you and when you actually saw it, you felt it was nothing like they described? You don’t have to worry about that with 3D design. Any ideas discussed are seen in 3D before they are constructed.

Catch problems early. Once construction begins, design changes can be costly. With the help of 3D design, you have the ability to spot problems or discrepancies in the early stages of projects. Whether it’s the engineer noting a structural error or deciding you don’t like the layout – substantial savings are seen by making these changes before the project goes to construction.

Changes are made in real time. With the ability to make design changes quickly, you won’t have to wait long for updates. You’ll be able to see how the final result would look in real life, and if you don’t like the new result, we can go back to the original vision with a few clicks of the mouse.

Market your project. If you need to sell your design before it is constructed, cartoon views or better yet, a photorealistic rendering will certainly go a long way to making an impression on your client.
