What is 3D rendering?
In the computer graphics development cycle, 3D rendering refers to the process of translating a 3D scene from a mathematical approximation to a finalized 2D image using a 3D software package’s render engine. Examples of rendering software with in-built render engine include Mental Ray or V-Ray.
Some of the important factors to consider when creating a 3D scene from the surface of an object include the lightning, textual and spatial information of the flattened (2D) object. Depending on the speed at which a 3D software package computes and finalizes images, 3D rendering can be either real-time rendering or offline/pre-rendering. Both types of rendering use various rendering techniques including scanline/rasterization, radiosity and raytracing.
Why it is important?
3D rendering helps to create stunning photorealistic images and such image are becoming increasingly important in industries such as the architectural industry, as more and more clients demand for photorealistic architectural renderings. Some of the benefits of 3D rendering to an architectural project include:
Effective communication – For an architectural project to be successful, the clients and the architect involved need to communicate effectively. Unfortunately, it is often difficult to express architectural concepts and ideas, especially without a good architectural model. Fortunately, 3D rendering can help solve this problem.
In particular, the architect can use a 3D model to communicate vital project details to the client, such as the project’s features and construction materials, before embarking on the project. This means that a 3D model would enable the client to see and resolve any discrepancies or make changes before construction starts.
Time and resources – Because a 3D model allows an architect and other construction experts to view a project from all angles, it makes it possible to identify and rectify design flaws (if any) before it is too late. This means that 3D rendering could potentially save both time and resources.
Effective marketing tool – A 3D model is one of the most effective methods an architect can use to showcase his/her skills to prospective clients. Similarly, real estate developers can use 3D renderings to pitch property development projects to potential investors.
Benefits of 3D Rendering in Property Development
Today, 3D rendering is an important element of property development. Some of the benefits of 3D rendering this space include:
Building development approval — All building in Australia must company with the Building Code of Australia and other building laws. For this reason, property investors who wish to construct buildings in Australia must obtain the necessary building permits from the local authorities. Fortunately, a 3D model can improve your chances of getting the necessary building approval.
Better than a blueprint — A blueprint can be difficult to read and interpret, especially if you lack the necessary technical knowledge. In contrast, a 3D model is easy to interpret, which makes it easier to notice mistakes and correct them.
3D rendering is basically a computer-aided process of creating three dimensional models from two dimensional objects. 3D models help to achieve spectacular photo-realism, which is important in various industries including the property development and architectural industries.
