    What is 3D rendering?

    A 3D rendering is a photorealistic image of an object that’s been created from a wireframe computer model. Technical drawing or CAD designs are commonly used to create 3D models, to which our 3D artists add lighting, textures, colours, materials and camera angles for photorealism. In architecture, 3D renderings are commonly used in the design process because they give architects and their clients a clear picture of what the finished project will look like.

    What is 3D rendering used for?

    3D renderings are created for presentations, marketing and design analysis purposes. For real estate marketing and sales 3D renderings are crucial. They can include virtual tours and 3D walk throughs, still renderings, floor plans, panoramic renderings and presentations. In architecture 3D renderings make it possible for architects and their clients to make design related decisions well before a building is actually built.

    What are the different types of 3D rendering?

    • 3D CGI Imagery/Exterior Images – Get approvals from council, create your marketing materials to sell your building or show the latest details to your client.
    • 3D CGI Imagery/Interior Images – Show every detail of your 3D interiors with 3D CGI interior images. We have a vast library of furniture to add the precise elements you are looking for.
    • 2D & 3D Floor Plans – 2D & 3D floor plans give your customers a birds-eye view of the architectural layout of your project, as well as provide perspective and help them visualize space and form while still maintaining a solid representation of the overall layout of your project.
    • 3D Photomontage – 3D photomontage is a necessity for visualising and promoting residential and commercial properties and for DA and council submissions and approvals.
    • 3D Animation – 3D animation gives your buyers a life-like walk through of your property before construction even begins!

    How long does 3D rendering take?

    The timeframe for a 3D rendering depends on the size of your project, the amount of detail needed, and whether you need us to model unique objects such as furniture or decor.

    How much does 3D rendering cost?

    “You get what you pay for” holds true in the rendering world. There are some companies out there advertising their rendering services as cheap, but if you’re in the market for high quality 3d images, run a mile. Why? Because it will end up costing you more in the long run. You won’t get the quality you need and will have to engage another rendering studio like ours to fix the problem. So… how much do 3d renderings cost? 3D renderings are calculated based on multiple factors such as the level of detail and complexity required, as well as the number of unique elements needed.

    What is the 3d rendering process?

    • Step 1: Project Assets
      The first thing we need is a list of your 3D rendering requirements:
      Requested view
      CAD files (.dwg format)
      Colors and material samples
      Landscape style
      Time of day
      Project timeline
      What the images will be used for (print, web etc)
      50% commencement fee s required to start the project
    • Step 2: Review Rendering Proof(s)
      This is the first view of the model in order to check the architecture and viewing angle. Please be very sure of the viewing angle for approval as we cannot go back and change it without additional charges. We typically allow 1 round of revisions at this stage.
    • Step 3: Landscape and Lighting
      Once you’ve given us feedback from step 2, we include all accessories, lighting effects, furniture and texture mapping to create the final render(s).
    • Step 4: Final 3D Render Delivery
      Once everything is approved, we will start to render the image(s) to a high resolution. So you are aware, each rendering can take up to one business day to render. If you are under deadline, we need to know in advance as mentioned in Step 1. Once complete and approved, we will email the final renders to you or send a dropbox link.

    What is 3D animation

    Using 3D animation we can make a not-yet-built project come to life, taking a digital 3D model of a project based on architectural 3D interior and/or exterior design, add texture, lighting, materials, furniture and more to create spaces that look like a real property. We then move a camera through the property so you can see what it’s going to look like once constructed. We can also incorporate aerial views using aerial photography so you can instantly demonstrate the size of the block or where the building sits on the property, or showcase those beautiful views!
