Architectural Visualization: Building a Library of 3D Models
Art, science, and engineering. It may seem counterintuitive, but the three are intertwined in architecture, where functional and esthetically pleasing appearance go hand in hand with sound structural design. Architects are artists at heart, striving to create and shape space that people want to live in and enjoy living in. As a result, one of the architect and designer's biggest challenges is the preparation and presentation of means by which customers and clients can visualize concepts, plans and details. In the past, this was done almost exclusively via floor plans, elevations and architectural renderings. Today, 3D models are used to make plans and concepts come to life like never before.
The answer is a library of 3D models that can be used with different colors, materials and textures whenever they're needed in a project. These can either be created or purchased on the emerging marketplace for 3D models. The quality and detail of those models, usually available in all the major formats (3ds Max, obj, fbx, etc.), ranges from simple and sometimes free, all the way to stunningly detailed and just plain gorgeous. Using V-ray rendering and a degree of detail simply not possible within the time constraints of most projects, these 3D models make architectural interiors shine and show them off in lifelike perfection.
It's hard to overstate the value and importance of a good library of 3D furniture and 3D interior design modules. They represent the type of realism and perfection customers have come to expect for computer-generated visuals, and they can be the difference between a winning design and an also-ran.
