As the name suggests, 3D architectural rendering is a three-dimensional view of an object. Floor plans, exterior and interior drawings etc. are an integral part of a construction of a building. However, this only gives a 2D view. A 3D architectural rendering is a much expressive and realistic way of displaying the drawings in a comprehensive and imaginative way.
A rendering module is used to view the project from different angles and views and thus makes rendering modifications easy. Virtual images give the client a chance to walk around the place and feel the interiors as well as exteriors. Details such as walls, ceilings, floors, furniture, fixtures etc. can be viewed and manipulated to get the required feel.
Working on this software requires a good amount of technical expertise in multimedia and animation rendering. It is both time saving and creative since it uses computer aided design. These 3D architectural renderings can also be delivered in the form of digital photographs and altered as and when needed, before the actual construction begins.
While the manual illustrations are less expensive, they are more time consuming and changes if any, needs can be made only through a new illustration or model. 3D presentations, on the other hand, are expensive since they use complex technologies in preparing them. However, they are fast and less of a hassle, since any changes in the colours, fixtures, furniture, building structure etc. can be made in the same model to satisfy the need of the client.
