In the architecture industry, presenting design plans effectively is vital in securing a project for a prospective client. Architects present design plans by creating a diagram that outlines, explains, or clarifies the structural system, electrical system, communication systems, and the site and landscape plans of the project. Architects also prepare a diagram of the floor-plan and in some cases, the interior design which includes the furnishings.
Technological advancements like Computer-Aided Design and Drafting (CADD), and Building Information Modeling (BIM) which produces three-dimensional (3D) visualization of a project, have created a new method of drawing design and construction plans apart from the traditional pen and paper. Designers and animators at GNET 3D suggest that some of the advantages of a BIM process include assisting architects in reducing errors and helping clients envision a project.
Here are 4 advantages of 3D visualization in architecture:
Precisely Create Presentations for Effective Visual Communication
Architects can use CADD and BIM to create and edit each dimension of a project, from the structure and its interiors to the surrounding landscape. Details like colour, texture, and lighting combined with existing photos of the potential site and its community to create a visually stimulating presentation of the built environment. The 3D visualization allows architectural plans to be presented as realistic as possible and clients will be able to see how the project will look from start to finish.
Spot Potential Problems and Edit Easily for A Time & Cost Effective Project
3D visualization processes have allowed architects to spot problems during the designing stage easily. Editing designs on a 2D blueprint cost a lot of time, effort, and money. Recognizing problems as early as possible and being able to edit it just as quickly when accomplishing a project will save the time and effort of the architect and client costs which may be redirected for marketing purposes.
Improve Shareability and Marketability by Using Virtual Reality Opportunities
3D design plans can be rendered to improve shareability for prospective clients. With the boom of multimedia and social media, advertising techniques like audience exposure to virtual reality have become a viable option.
The development of technology has paved the way for innovations across industries and architecture is not an exemption. Presentation of 3D visualization of architectural plans provides a convenience for the market and the people involved in real estate projects.
