Tips for a Successful 3D Project

Technology: No Replacement for Creativity

Technology allows us to create quickly and do things that in the past seemed impossible. In some cases, such as with 3D rendering, there was no way we could do today what we do without technology. However with 3D rendering the main cause of cheap looking images is those that rely 100% on technology and end up looking fake and robotic.

No doubt with the pace that 3D rendering technology is heading, and the lifelike results that are constantly being improved upon, there will come a time that the ‘robots’ or AI will outstrip the human in efforts to create lifelike and realistic imagery. Until then, the human ‘artistic’ input is the difference between a good 3D image – and a great 3D image.

Dependent on the client’s budget we can create basic imagery that ‘does the job’, and if the budget allows, (because time is money), we can put extra work into post production that adds extra layers of realism to a perspective.

Have a look at our work and see if you can tell the bigger budget images apart from the low budget images?

Why do we offer cheap 3D?
Because … not all 3D images are created for marketing campaigns.

With Creative 3D Perspectives you only pay for what you use. Ask us for a quote today. Be sure to explain your requirements and give us information on the budget available for your 3D artist impression project. You’d be surprised how cheaply we can produce your imagery!

Preparation Is The Key

Top Tips for a Successful 3D Project

  • Prepare Your Plans. Obtain all your plans and files in the correct format. To quote we need PDF versions of your plans. Then to start the modelling process (stage 1) we require your plans in .dwg format, also known as CAD format.

    The other plans that are essential are the elevation and /or section drawings of your project. With all these files at hand you are sure to be ready to get started as soon as possible once you have received our quote. Once we have all these plans and required files, there are no delays down the track, when we are missing critical files.

  • Know your materials. It is essential that you know at the outset, what materials your project is going to be using. For instance if you’re using tiles or carpeting for the interior… Go online and find samples of your preferred materials. Google search it and click on ‘images’ in your search.  It’s then very easy to make a quick spreadsheet with the couple of columns, indicating the texture or item you are after for your imagery. e.g. cladding, a blue couch, a double bowl sink, whatever you want. Even tapware! This is the FUN part where you get to choose all the details. List your product and texture in 2 columns.  Better still, grab an image of your texture (large as possible and provide this to your 3D artists within your spreadsheet or Word document).

    You will find this helps you make all the important decisions about your final image. What is more, this will save you time and costs on your project thanks to the speed with which we can then respond to your brief.

    This will be very helpful in saving time when it comes to the texture stage of your project.
