Usage the technology of 3D-visualizing during creation of visual images of various objects every day gain more and more popularity. For example, during the construction and maintenance, using 3D it is possible to visualize the future project (interior, exterior, single object), taking into account the smallest details. 3D visualization or 3D-rendering is a three-dimensional image of the object that is created using a special three-dimensional computer programs.
Today, it is almost impossible to imagine functioning of area of design and construction without the use of 3D technologies. Another important point is the presentation of the developments. Using three-dimensional images makes the process of communication of the customer and executor more easy and productive. 3D images will help to consider the draft from all sides, to evaluate all the pros and cons, to make the necessary changes on-time. This allows to save time and money seriously, because even the most professional and detailed drawing is not capable to display all the details of the object.
What are the main tasks of 3D-visualization?
3D-visualization is a versatile technology, but it is most often used in those areas where it is crucial to have a very detailed representation of the object. First of all, we are talking about the following areas:
• Design, architecture, construction,
• Repair and restoration works,
• Design (projecting and performing of interiors and exteriors),
• Preparation of the presentation of objects and groups of objects (house, car, boat, garden etc).
Types of visualization:
1. 3D visualization of exteriors
Creation of 3D images of architectural objects allows to see and to consider all the features of the project as a whole. In this case, the technology allows to solve a number of serious issues simultaneously: the creation of projects of individual objects, the possibility of landscape planning around this object, the probability of inclusion of an object in an existing landscape (complex).
2. 3D visualization of interiors
3D visualization of the interiors is most often used in case of need to present an object to the customer or to a group of customers (your target audience). An example would be a visualization of a design project of apartment, where design solutions and interior passages are clearly demonstrated. 3D project is a mobile tool for the demonstration, which highly accelerates the process of negotiation and discussion. The main advantage of 3D visualization in this case is a real saving of time and efforts both of the customer and of the performer.
3. Subject 3D visualization
This type of visualization is used to create three-dimensional images of specific objects: furniture, techniques, art, advertising leaflets, packaging, and much more. In this case, the objective 3D visualization is transformed into indispensable tool for the creation of content of resources: websites, online stores, catalogues. Three-dimensional visual product is in many ways superior to usual photograph. This is especially required when the developed object does not exist in reality and it is simply impossible to make its photo. Another important advantage of 3D visualization is the ability to use these images for 3D-printing. This is useful in case of the need to create layouts and visual educational aids for various purposes.
4. Visualization’s tools
The quantity of special programs for the 3D-visualization grows constantly. Creation of new applications in this field is one of the most popular areas of programming. Already existing tools constantly updated with new features. This says that the ability of 3D-imaging technologies increase each day, opening new prospects for customers and performers. Today, the most popular programs in this field are: 3D Studio Max, Sketchup, Artlantis, ArchiCAD, and others.
