Architectural Rendering - Computer Aided Design (CAD)

By John Enrique Arturo

You probably have heard about CAD rendering, and if you are not a graphics artist you may not be aware of just how often and in where it is used. It might surprise you just how often and in what applications CAD rendering appears.

Architectural rendering is not just for architects despite its name. Car manufacturers, landscapers, engineers and others use CAD rendering or have it done for them. It allows them to see flaws in design and perspective before costly errors are made in real time production.

Architectural rendering is very detailed oriented and incorporates realistic lighting and textures to give a much more realistic feel to the modeled object. Virtual walk-throughs can be created for the web to give prospective buyers a real feel for the design. Car designers are bringing their models to life in three dimensions before production with the aid of architectural rendering.

CAD or computer aided design can be as simple as a 2D representation with little detail or realism to as complex and versatile as 3D parametric solid modeling. It depends on the use the end product will be put to, as well as the skill of the CAD operator. The simplest are 2D or wire models.

There are many brands of CAD software available. They range in cost from freeware (high learning curves with low end simplistic results), all the way to high end software with sophisticated engines that can literally take a design from the drawing board and breathe life into it. Though, even the expensive software may also have high learning curves because of all the options and details that can be imported.

If you are a designer you may not necessarily be a software genius. CAD software takes quite a bit of skill and usually either schooling or hours upon hours of trial and error. Architectural rendering or CAD can be outsourced and sometimes this is the wisest choice in terms of time and expense.

Should the option of a rendering service appeal to your circumstances and very possibly to your budget, then it is important that you view samples of their work, inquire as to their delivery time, and balance costs. Make sure you choose a reliable service and beware any that promise too low a price or only offer stock rendering. Good services will get as much information as possible before giving a price beware of any that offer a custom architectural rendering service for a flat fee or the costs seem way too low. In the case of architectural rendering as with most things, you usually get what you pay for.

Should you decide to learn to use Architectural rendering software then set aside sufficient time for the learning curve. Invest time in finding tutorials that will shorten the learning time. Make sure your software is applicable for the use you want to put it through and lay in a good stock of patience.

Architectural Rendering, Illustration and Life Inside a Computer Animation

By Robert D. Kelsey

Architectural rendering has been around for a while now and it is becoming more of a mainstay in architectural drawings and construction planning, especially on the design and presentation end.

I often have people ask just what is architectural rendering. Although most people today have seen some renderings somewhere, the real meat and potatoes of rendering has not filtered through to the general society yet.

Architectural rendering and the term architectural illustration, more or less interchangeable, refers to the art of creating two-dimensional images or animations that plainly portray the qualities and design elements of any architectural design.

There are many parts of architectural rendering. The following are key to any architectural visualization effort.

First, we have still image 3D renders. 3D models that are photo realistic are created from client supplied sketches, drawing or CAD files. The scene is incorporated with landscaping, rocks, trees, grass people etc., and is very realistic. Multiple views are possible to get the view from all angles, top, side, front or back.

Second we have photomontage. Photomontage refers to making a number of photographs join together so that is appears like one very long, or wide, photograph. This is very similar to the pictures of your teeth that you may have seen at your dentist. Professionals will take a series of photographs and cut or crop them so that they meet perfectly just as though you were looking at a real life view, rather than a photograph.

360 Panorama. This is a lot like a photomontage but there is more detail offered and you can spin, zoom and rotate up and down. One neat feature is that these can be done for indoor views or outdoor views.

A virtual tour is a very useful tool for anyone involved in selling architectural design or for putting over a successful presentation of a building or other architectural element.

3D floor plans. This view is generally of the inside of a building with the roof removed. You see all the details of all the rooms and can be done for multiple levels. This is like removing the roof or the second story of a building to see what is underneath. Very effective and showing a realistic view of what a plan really is and how it will look in real life.

Animations. Here you are presented with a view of a building as though you were walking through it. There are also flyover views, or fly around views, where you can see the project from the air and really get the feeling you are there, rather than viewing it on a computer screen. This is really cool stuff and very effective for sales and presentations.

Computer Desks - Rendering The Full Comfort

By Sophia Emma

Ergonomic desks are the most common computer desks, enveloped with an adjustable keyboard tray. In addition to this, you are provided with sufficient space for handwriting. These desks have sufficient space for monitor shelf and holes for the cables integrated in the given design, making the connection among the computer components easier.

There are various types of computer desks such as armoire desk, cubicle desk, lectern desks and many more. These desks are unique and specially designed with special care, featured to fulfill all the basic requirements for the users' convenience. The armoire desk is backed up to provide space for a keyboard, printer, mouse, monitor and speakers. These features have made these furnitures unique and different in them, attracting the users with their cool looks.

Cubicle desks are specially designed for business and government offices, featured with range of shelves, cable routing holes and trays for computer systems. The varieties of these furnitures vary depending upon their usage and the place where they are being used. These furnitures are different from each other in their shapes and designs.

The large multi-student computer desks are configured in rows to house dozens of desktops, featured to support wiring, theft prevention, vandalism reduction and general maintenance. Besides these, the lectern desks or computer carts with small systems are backed up to support enough grounds for a laptop and a mouse pad. Desktops are typically mass-produced and are designed to support self assembly.

The system is itself distinct from these furnitures, which is designed to bear a typically sized desktop, monitor and the various accessories over it. Cabling must be routed via the channels and the access openings through the installer. A rolling chair table configuration helps in the mobility and in the improvisation of accessibility in various situations where a desk is not convenient to use.

Gyratory computer tables can even be used over the beds. These modular computer tables separate the user interface elements from the network connection and the computing. This allows more and more placement flexibility. These modules are connected with each other through the wireless technology, aiming the connections easier as well as comfortable too for the users. This way, these furnitures are the alternatives making usage of the systems easier and convenient. So you can easily choose among the available ones as per your convenience and requirements.

Do You Create Realistic Looking Computer Aided Design? Architectural Rendering Makes It Look Real

By Robert D. Kelsey

An ages old problem is with people looking at an architectural drawing and being able to use their mind to visualize what is drawn. A typical architectural drawing is nothing more than a square, or rectangle, drawn on a piece of paper. Connect several of these of differing sizes and you can have an actual drawing of a house or building. But having people see what that building or house is actually going to look like is where the problem lies. Many people just don't have the ability to visualize something from a flat, two-dimensional drawing.

Another issue is that it is difficult to depict materials that are used. For instance there may be a brick or stone wall which is really difficult to show in a drawing that is basically an overhead view looking down at the floor. You really can't show any true design elements in these basic drawings. The time it takes to create traditional mechanical drawings is also a hinderance. Nothing happens quickly when it comes to manually drawing a house or other architectural plan.

These are all issues that are overcome with rendering. Computer Aided Design (CAD) allows for every detail to be visualized and easily understood. The renderings can show lighting and reflections and allows for minute details that were never possible with basic mechanical drawings. Today an architect who is equipped with the tools to create architectural renderings can fulfill any request for detail and imagery that is desired.

But the name architectural rendering is a bit of a misnomer, or maybe it is better to say, there is a lot more available through this computer aided drawing than simply for architects alone. Today it is a valuable tool in many walks of life. From courtrooms where it can be used to visualize a crime scene to automobile manufacturers where you can see what the latest model is going to look like in exact detail, color and dimensions.

The uses are truly endless. Computer animations have entered into the world of cartoons where cartoon artists can now animate cartoon books like they never could before. Cartoon creators and storyboard artists can now make a cartoon figure that is realistic to human proportions and have the image actually look lifelike as a portrait or photograph would. The future awaits us to see what other changes will come from the technology but it is certain today that the value of CAD goes far beyond its original use in architectural drawing and design.

A structure becomes architectural, and not sculptural, when its elements no longer have their justification in nature.
Guillaume Apollinaire

All fine architectural values are human values, else not valuable.
Frank Lloyd Wright

Among these temples there is one which far surpasses all the rest, whose grandeur of architectural details no human tongue is able to describe; for within its precincts, surrounded by a lofty wall, there is room enough for a town of five hundred families.
Hernando Cortes

Any architectural project we do takes at least four or five years, so increasingly there is a discrepancy between the acceleration of culture and the continuing slowness of architecture.
Rem Koolhaas

Borne out of this, starting around the 17th Century was the Baroque era. It is my view that it is one of the architectural peak periods in western civilisation.
Harry Seidler

Even though I build buildings and I pursue my architecture, I pursue it as an artist. I deliberately keep a tiny studio. I don't want to be an architectural firm. I want to remain an artist.
Maya Lin

For many years, I have lived uncomfortably with the belief that most planning and architectural design suffers for lack of real and basic purpose. The ultimate purpose, it seems to me, must be the improvement of mankind.
James Rouse

I am but an architectural composer.
Alexander Jackson Davis

I hope that America as a whole, and especially its architects, will become more seriously involved in producing a new architectural culture that would bring the nation to the apex - where it has stood before - and lead the world.
Tadao Ando

Architecture is the learned game, correct and magnificent, of forms assembled in the light.Le Corbusier

The mother art is architecture. Without an architecture of our own we have no soul of our own civilization.
Frank Lloyd Wright

All architecture is shelter, all great architecture is the design of space that contains, cuddles, exalts, or stimulates the persons in that space.
Philip Johnson

There are three forms of visual art: Painting is art to look at, sculpture is art you can walk around, and architecture is art you can walk through
Dan Rice

Architecture is a social act and the material theater of human activity.
Spiro Kostof

Fashion is architecture: it is a matter of proportions.
Coco Chanel

Architecture, of all the arts, is the one which acts the most slowly, but the most surely, on the soul
Ernest Dimnet

An architect is the drawer of dreams
Grace McGarvie

Architecture is music in space, as it were a frozen music
Friedrich Wilhelm Joseph von Schelling

Writing about music is like dancing about architecture.
Laurie Anderson
