As an architect, you come across many clients who wish to see a visual representation of their ideas. While it is not an easy task, it is something that every architect has to master to successfully further their career.
If you are familiar with 3D architectural rendering then you also know that the result isn’t always up to the expectations. Considering this same problem, I have curated a list of tips that I learned from 3D rendering Sydney services and deliver some unbelievable architectural renders.
1. Memory Requirement for the Software
Regardless of the software you use to create structures and models, the efficiency of the system the software is running on is important. Do not use a machine that meets just the minimum requirements of the software or the delays will make it unbearable for you to work on that software. Not to mention, it takes longer to operate these type of software on slower machines so, investing in upgrading your RAM, if not the whole system, would be a good idea.
2. Choosing the Right Resolution Size
Depending on how you need to share the 3D render, the right resolution size can make a significant difference. If you have to deliver a presentation for instance, a larger resolution is definitely a better choice. But if you need to share the render with someone over the email, a medium resolution file would more than suffice.
3. Intelligently Use the Camera Tool
For those of you looking to deliver more realistic approach than the usual three dimensional images, using the camera tool can provide great results. Besides, if you are familiar and even a little experienced with architecture rendering techniques than you probably know how to use perspective views, which are used all the time by 3D rendering Sydney services. Just remember to keep the colors in your shot limited to three.
4. Save Your Work
Do I even need to tell you the importance of saving your work for future referencing? If your boss or the client asks for some changes in the design, previously saved renders can save you a lot of time and effort in such a situation.
5. Do Not Forget to Run Renders on Drafts
I have heard many people say that they just skip running draft renderings. Believe me, if you start rendering your drafts, even the smallest parts, you would bless me every time you have to deliver a finished image. It will save you that much time. It is actually a rule in 3D rendering Melbourne companies.
6. Add Live Images of Objects
There is just something about adding real life images of objects to renders that make them seem more complete and attractive. Depending on your render these objects can be anything from people to plants and even cars. This will help you improve your renders significantly.
7. Create a Proper Exterior
I understand that creating a full on exterior can be very much time consuming. However, a 3D render without natural elements like trees, bushes or grass would comparatively look a lot boring.
8. Always Update Your Software
A new version means more features and improved output quality no matter what software you use. So, always use the most recent version of your software. And while you are at it, make sure it is a 64-bit version as they are usually made for commercial use.
