Architectural Rendering - Visualize Architecture Building Models
By Jenny Shield

Architectural Rendering is basically known as preparation and presentation of the purposed design of a building. Using it, architectural building models can be evaluated. It includes commercial, residential, industrial and institutional unit. In the rendering process architects make the sketches of the building with accurate dimension and show you accordingly. Invent of CAD technology made it more realistic. You can view moving objects on your computer using this latest technology and get the exact view of your future building.

CAD and related multimedia technique allow you to present how prospective building will appear after it is built. In the past time the process of viewing architectural building models on computer was not accurate but after the invention of rendering technique one can view the building models from 360 degree. Usage of 3D technology also reduced the complexity. 3D architectural rendering is the most valuable term used widely in architect industry.

To select proper color and pattern for your building exterior, you can use 3D rendering technique. One can select a view from wide spectrum designs. After selecting a proper design you can also change it as per your preferences. In the past it was almost impossible to get the exact shade of color which you wanted. Today with the advancement of the present CAD technologies, especially architectural rendering it is now possible the exact design which you wanted.

The technique is not only limited only for exterior but it also used in interior designs. Rendering is used to get proper furniture design, textures, wall color and flooring design. Various combination of architectural rendering technique gives you realistic view of your interior which you can manage on your computer. All the process can be done by using latest software so you will get maximum accuracy and that resist the re designing possibility.

Architectural rendering includes animated architectural illustration, 3D house plans, 3D visualizations, photomontage architectural rendering, walkthrough and flythrough. Each term is used to satisfy different purposes like walkthrough is the powerful application used to find the faults in design and to get error free architectural building models.

3D Rendering and Architectural Visualisation - How to Get Started
By Nick S Martin

So you are interested in getting into 3d rendering and architectural visualisation? Want to know what software and hardware all the professional cg artists are using? In this article I will explain everything you need to know to start creating high quality 3d architectural renderings.

If you are interested in architectural visualisation it helps to have some sort of a background in architecture or design...simply so you are able to easily read and interpret the often complicated architectural drawings. This is by no means essential...but it helps! If you don't have a background in architecture or building design there are thousands of resources on the net which can help you to get a grasp of the major concepts.


The first thing you will need is a computer. Architectural visualisation is a very cpu intensive business, so the more powerful your computer is - the better. Try to get at least a quad core processor and as much RAM as possible (6gb is an ok start). Use 64 bit operating systems...this way you can access more RAM. Also spend a bit of money on a good graphics card. Once you start getting serious about your 3d renderings you will want to think about a render farm...which is a series of computers linked together to make a big powerful processing unit. But for now a good quality, powerful workstation should do the trick.


There are a few software options available but by far the most commonly used in the architectural visualisation industry is 3ds max. This is an amazing piece of software that is used for an astounding amount of varying applications throughout the 3d world. You should spend as much time as possible mucking around in 3ds max so you become familiar with its general layout and the tools available.

Rendering Software - again there are quite a lot to choose from but VRAY is the most popular amongst 3d visualisation professionals. Whilst being quite a complex program it simply creates the most realistic images - which is pretty much the most important thing in architectural visualisation.

So I would highly recommend you get yourself the latest versions of 3ds max and Vray to get things started. Another very useful piece of software is Photoshop - this is very useful in the post processing of images.

Getting Started.

A good way to get started and the get some inspiration is to study some architectural photography. Is is important to know the basics of photography so that you can mimic some of the principles used to create an aesthetically pleasing image.

But in terms of the technical side of 3d modelling and rendering - DO MANY, MANY TUTORIALS. I cannot stress to you enough the importance of doing online tutorials to advance your knowledge. You can try and just jump into 3ds max and vray and see what happens but you will end up pulling your hair out - I promise. There are so many free 3d tutorial resources out there on the web that you would be crazy not to use them. You can learn everything you need to know just by finding the right tutorial online.

Creating 3d Renderings.

Once you have the basics down and are looking to start creating some decent images its simply a matter of experimentation. Find a photo of a building that you want to replicate and get to work. Just keep testing out settings and trying different techniques until you achieve something that you are happy with. And if you can't work something out...ask Google!

It will probably take years of practice to be able to create the stunning architectural visualisation images you see around the place... but remember to just keep experimenting and learning as you go. DO TUTORIALS!

Realistic 3D Rendering Tips
By Nick S Martin

Ever wondered why your 3d renderings just don't look very real? Not sure how to make the jump from producing average 3d renderings to consistently creating stunningly realistic renders?! I'm going to let you in on a few industry tips that should have you fine tuning your skills in no time.

Creating a 3d architectural rendering takes a lot of technical ability. It can take years to become proficient in certain modelling and rendering software. Creating a 3d rendering is a process of problem solving. You can see what doesn't look good and you must think of a solution to make it look better. But in order to do this you have to know your software backwards and be able to recognise the cause and effect of changing certain parameters.

But you could have all the technical ability in the world and still not be able to produce a great render. So what is it that makes all the difference? What makes some renders look amazing while others just look standard?

It's you - the artist.
Your background and your eye for detail. You can be a tech wizard but you still need to be able to make a decent composition. You need to be aware of the real world around you....because this is what we are trying emulate.

The number 1 tip I can give to any up and coming 3d rendering artist is:
To study life. It's that simple.

The only way you can create a photo-realistic 3d rendering is to study a real photo! Or better yet - study real life scenery. You need to pay specific attention to detail. The detail in the lighting, the textures, the form and structure. If you look at any great 3d architectural rendering you will be amazed at the detail in everything from the textures and materials to the lighting and background.

Study good architectural photography.
This will not only give you an endless source of inspiration for your 3d renderings but will help you to recognise good composition and lighting. You will learn about the point of interest and the rule of thirds. After all, the main purpose of an architectural visualisation is to visualise a building before it is built. Architectural visualisers are effectively virtual architectural photographers...except we have to build the building as well as photograph them!

Attention to Detail.
The primary reason why most 3d renderings don't look realistic is the attention to detail. You have to spend time on the details! You have to make sure your 3d modelling is spot on. Then your textures. You will need to add detail to your textures...how often in the real world do you see spotless concrete or tiled wood grain?! Never. Pat attention to your materials and what elements of the scene they are covering.

It won't happen over night but if you are enthusiastic and passionate enough... it will happen.

Why to Outsource Architectural Modeling and 3D Rendering Project
By Jenny Shield

In the present globalization, outsourcing plays crucial role for all types of business. One of the popular terms is architectural outsourcing. All the countries are seeking faster infrastructure development in short time period to compete and it is never easy. So outsourcing is the better term to save time and cost.

Architectural modeling and 3D rendering are the most important part of any architectural projects. Various offshore architectural firms are offering customized architectural models that fulfill your requirements. At the first time many of the firms are offering free trial offer so you can easily get exact idea for your projects. At the present time India is considered as a best destination for outsourcing. You will sure get vast infrastructure, great and error free outputs as lowest cost within turnaround time.

To outsource 3D rendering projects you just need to send your sketches or designs to professional resource. Many of the architectural firms convert your designs or sketches in to moving objects so you can check out perfect arrangement of your requirements. You can get many of the advantages like cost saving, time saving, security and transparency by outsourcing 3d rendering projects.

For outsourcing architectural projects you muse need to know about pricing system. Professional firms offer different types of pricing system so you can choose which is better for you. Before outsourcing your projects you can also ask for previous completed projects, so you can aware with company's reputation.
