Sceptical of the flooring you have chosen to match your furniture? Unsure of the sofa colour matching with the carpet? Thanks to the marvels of modern-day computation that help is not far behind. Welcome to the world of 3D.
In this chaotic world with complex drawings, it is difficult for one to imagine what one is going to come across. With 3D visualization, what you see is what gets built.
With the advent of 3D visualization schemes and its favourable outcomes, the two-dimensional scheme has become primitive and non-satisfying, compelling us to transpose from 2D to the awe-inspiring world of 3D.
2D illustrations made it extremely difficult for the interior designers to communicate their ideas to the clients, precisely how he/she might have envisaged it. But, the introduction of 3D modelling has allowed us to have a holistic look at the space inculcating all the design elements ranging from the artefacts to the furnishings, all in one demonstration. This puts the client with a feeling of being a part of the virtual world and experience the same as he would do in real life.
A 3D model allows one to imagine the kind of impact that lights, both natural and artificial would create on the project. The right kind of lights would create the right mood and sense of the scene by simulating shadow patterns with respect to the individual components and materials used. Some 3D softwares can precisely simulate the sun path over a project if the exact coordinates of the site are fed into the software. Additionally, 3D softwares mimic the tactile feel of a surface with regards to the surface texture and can visually impart the feeling of the same.
Two-dimensional illustrations bring numerous limitations with itself, mainly with regards to innovation. It is very difficult to come up with an offbeat idea or a product due to the constraints that 2D brings with itself owing to the fact that you are only observing two dimensions and completely neglecting the third dimension which is height, the main component in rendering scale and proportion to a built form.
The conversion of an idea into reality has become much smoother with the advent of 3D models. Innovation can be easily converted into reality with the help of 3d models. The newer 3D softwares have enabled us to implement varied ideas that seemed ridiculously impossible earlier.
With the potential of the 3D illustrations, the whole concept of client presentations has taken a revolutionary move. The client now has the opportunity to know exactly about what he is going to be served with. Also, for him to ponder over the modifications that he might want the designer to come up with, leaving him with a greater degree of satisfaction.
In a virtual domain, it is possible to make amendments quickly and subsequently on the final product as per the requirements of the client. This creates a clear communication and exchange of ideas between the client and the designer to come up with a design that is achieved exactly how it is envisaged through various iterations of the design.
Just as we have always tried to keep up advancement in technology in all spheres of life, this development has caught up very quickly among the architectural and construction fraternity. Newer developments like real-time rendering using 3D models are being noted as advanced development in the world of 3D modelling and rendering.
