What is 3D Rendering? 3D Rendering in its simplest explanation is that it is the creation of images using a computer software. 3D rendering is visual creative work, but unlike its relations photography and cinematography, everything in the image is imaginary and must be created. It involves the adapting of the likeness of an object into an image. The C3EL design engineers working on 3D images must input data on the objects in a scene. These data sets include details such as color, lighting, material, and texture. Then the 2D image is captured from a specific perspective and location for the final design.
How it Works
The first step involves the design engineer getting a solid idea of what kind of scene is to be created for the client based on the consultation. The plans will be drawn up, sketches made, and reference images identified that will give the design team direction.
The next step is the rendering which means the computer is used to capture 2D images of the scene as it has been laid out in the sketches. This step can greatly vary depending on the details and the quality of the image required.
Because 3D rendering is a subjective process that draws on the creativity of the design engineer, there may be a need for several revisions if the client is not satisfied with the end results. Below are a few stages that our design engineers take before a final design is released to our client:
What are the Benefits to Customers? Obviously, the very first advantage is going to be the level of detail and scale that C3EL design engineers can achieve over any traditional physical model. While physical models give a good idea of how a finished design will look, it naturally doesn't give any real sense of scale or perspective. 3D rendering also allows you to see through the eyes of a life-sized person (via computer screen) how the designs of the build will look, and a much more detailed visualization of the textures and colors used in the build and how the various furniture will look in the space when installed.
What are the Benefits to Engineers? Before the age of 3D rendering, design engineers relied heavily on hand-drawn renderings to guide their work and provide clients with the idea of how a project would develop. This was time-consuming and a tedious process that today's 3D rendering software has helped make similar and visually effective.
The use of 3D rendering provides the ability to visualize a project more clearly and identify areas that can benefit from design changes. Being able to make alterations during the design process means being better able to meet our clients needs and the market demands.
