3D Rendering and Animation has given impetus to the architectural and engineering industries. It empowers architectural industry with photo-real images and animations before laying a single brick. This helps clients to get the whole information regarding the project just in a single view. It supports engineering industry by shortening the product development cycle. Ultimately, it saves money and streamlines the entire manufacturing process.
3D rendering is the process of producing a two-dimensional image from three-dimensional data stored in the computer. These images can be used to print in brochures, catalogues, and pamphlets with the text to make them attractive as well as animations can be saved into CDs to produce it to the number of people simultaneously. This technology is widely used by architectural industry to show the photo-real images of the buildings to the people with the intention of selling.
There are some common methods used for this technique like wireframe renderings and polygon based rendering. These days some advanced methods are also in use like ray tracing, scan-line rendering and other advanced architectural 3D rendering. The images produced by them are called photo-real images because they are similar to real pictures which looks like as somebody has captured a photograph of something from real life.
There are various types of renderings which are used to produce images and animations like photo-real renderings, including still renderings, virtual tours, walk-through and fly-by animations, panoramic renderings, light, shadow renderings and renovation renderings etc. All these types serve different purposes and therefore, one can choose the type of rendering which suits the best to his requirements.
This technique is also used for home renovation. Before, reaching to the process of rendering these drawings and models are made in AutoCAD which allows editing or making changes. This advantage of the software can be exploited by making experiments using various textures and layouts in the drawing and then can be examined to finalize the look which suits the best to the requirements of the client.
This saves time as well as money since there is no need to build prototypes to be shown to the various numbers of people. Moreover, any changes required can be made at the initial stage without having to bear the expenses of reconstruction. All these advantages of 3D Rendering and Animation let architectural and engineering industries to excel the process of manufacturing or construction. This ultimately, leads to multiply the profit of these companies.
