The Power of the Panoramic
3D Animation and Models for Layout and Design
Designing has always been something that takes amazing skill and hard work to accomplish. It is not a skill that is simply derived from pure talent. Although talent plays a significant part in the process, without honing that talent with the latest design technology you will quickly become less important to any company that you work for. The need for expertise is even more evident if you are the type of designer that works for themselves in a freelance capacity. It does not matter what or who you work for, you need to know that your designs have to be able to stand on their own and they can only stand out from others if they are given the tools to do so by the designer.
One of the most important aspects of design is with the basic structure of anything you are designing. The building or even just an object is not just what it is. It has to have the elements in place that allow for the eye to be drawn to where the designer wants it to be drawn to. The building has to have the appeal to the potential buyer that allows for them to have a desire to go further and see what is inside. Many designers fail to offer this and the buyer simply flips through the buildings without a second glance because there is nothing eye-catching about the design. When designing structure, you want the viewer to see your property and stop flipping through so they are enticed to look further.
One way to accomplish this is to enable you design to have that spark that allows it to stand out among the many other designs 3D models can enable you to do this. The use of 3D aspects throughout the exterior will allow for the property to have a sense of depth. It draws in the buyer and allows them to desire to look further.
Different buildings work better when they are placed in environments that allow for their best features to shine. The environment in which you place your building in is just as important as the structure itself. You would never place an industrial building into a residential environment because it gives the potential buyer a false perspective as to what the structure will actually be. You want the person looking at your building to have a complete sense of the building and offer them a feeling that they could really use the space. The environment is just as important whether you are designing a home on a lake or a commercial office space in a bustling metropolis.
3-dimensional objects throughout the environment such as water features and even trees give the entire project movement allowing they eyes of the viewer to be focused throughout the space and enables the building itself to shine above and beyond others who may be working toward that potential buyer. The more detail that you are able to give the buyer, the more probability you will have of making the final sale above the other designers.
Once you have successfully attracted your potential buyer with the exterior of the building along with the environment, there is no other place to go but inside. Many deals have resulted in the negative for lack of impression when the interior is brought into focus. The days of simply showing a buyer the floor plan and allowing their imagination to take them throughout the rooms are gone. People generally lack the ability to successfully imagine what a space can be without the use of visual keys. The buyer today wants to know and see exactly what they are going to buy before they decide on the final purchase.
3D is an amazing tool that allows for people to see more. Virtual walkthroughs are now a part of the general landscape when working with high end clients. These walkthroughs are not just a way to see what the space could be, but actually allows for the customer to gain access to how the space flows and what furnishings would best work within. There was a time when the customer had virtually no idea what the final result of the space would be and only had the designers experience and fabric swatches to go on. Now designers utilize 3 dimensional objects throughout the design to give the customer the real view of the property without them having to think about the placement of things.
Design has certainly come a long way in recent years with all of the 3D technologies that have become available. It is likely that the trend will continue and if you as a designer are looking to further your experience and therefore further your company, you will have to stay up to date with all of the trends and technologies that come to light.
