Why is 3D animation preferred to Traditional representation in Architecture?
Why is 3D animation preferred to Traditional representation
Visualization plays a big role in the architectural industry. 3D rendering is a
very important technique used in visualization. Complex architectural data
presented in one or two dimensional formats are often tough to visualize.
But with 3D modeling and animation; this data becomes easier to represent
and understand by all parties to a project. Visualization can be used during
different phases of a construction project including interior and exterior design
view, floor plan design as well as interactive rendering. Architects can also
demonstrate smaller components like lighting, textures, paints and décor items
with 3D animation.
3D models vs. Physical Models
In 3D technology; 3D models can be used to depict objects that have just been
conceived. These models are like physical models; just that they are digitized.
However, an important advantage of 3D models is that views are possible from
every angle including interior views. This is a big disadvantage in physical
models. Architectural model makers are today utilized in every project
regardless of size and magnitude simply because they are more efficient, easier
to visualize and cost effective since every potential flaw can be identified and
resolved in the design stage itself without getting into the actual process of
3D modeling and its Benefits in Architectural Projects
3D modeling is an important aspect of 3D animation. It involves the process of
developing a mathematical and
wireframe representation of a living
or inanimate object. 3D modeling is
versatile and can be used in
Architectural, mechanical and
structural engineering projects
derive several benefits from
deploying 3D animation technology
Here are some quick benefits to
using architectural model makers.
1. Viability and feasibility of a project can be better determined with the
use of 3D models.
2. Design process can be enhanced significantly since changes are facilitated
quickly and efficiently. It is possible to effect changes to the original
structure or edit without having to start from scratch.
3. Existing and potential errors to a project can be ascertained immediately
without even beginning the process of construction.
4. 3D animation offers a highly realistic entity even in a virtual
5. 3D technology helps in reducing cost and increasing competitiveness. It
is hence the most preferred medium for both companies and customers.
6. Every tiny detail can be represented in a 3D model thus enabling 360
degree view of the proposed project.
7. Architectural model makers can do away the development of numerous
other marketing collateral such a brochures and presentations since these
are more elaborate, realistic and shareable.
