3D rendering technology enables virtual 3D Architectural visualization of a proposed building architecture from various angles as if it were built in a real world. Architectural rendering basically enables you to visualize a property with proposed lightings, textures, materials, and others in a virtual simulated environment. Taking 3D rendering a step ahead, there’s an innovative imminent concept which is gaining grounds nowadays i.e. Architectural walkthrough.
A walkthrough is a creation of a series of rendered images of a design that enables one to move through it and provides an impression as if one was actually present in it. Nowadays in addition to 3D rendering, 3D architectural walkthrough has also turn into an important tool for architects, designers and stakeholders and is aspiring of significant improvements in its applications as well as extended technologies.
An architectural 3D walkthrough makes it possible to visualize a property in greater detail as opposed to 3D rendering. With a 360 degree view of the building architectural model, you not just have an idea of the apparent look but also of the complex information of spaces, elevations, plans as well as cross-sections of the proposed infrastructure. Architectural walkthrough gives end users the opportunity to visualize the construction with landscaping, colors, lightings, materials, textures, facilities, moving objects, and so on.
Benefits with architectural walkthrough:
- Exteriors such as natural lighting direction, landscaping, pathways can be exhibited
- Lighting within the premises, locations of facilities, and so on can be visualized
- Actual materials, colors, textures can be exhibited
- Transform a ‘view’ to an ‘experience’
- Identification of the required modifications can be done
Architectural walkthrough has a wide range of applications in residential, commercial complexes, malls, complex industrial structures, factories, manufacturing plants, etc. Architectural walkthrough also provides the same benefits as 3D rendering, yet, in a more enhanced and superior way. Architectural walkthrough improves salability of design, minimize discrepancy between client requirements and the architect’s model of it and facilities 360 degree view in a virtual environment with your required lightings, effects, etc.
As an additional feature to 3D technology, architectural walkthrough also enables users to view the development much before the construction commences in the real-world. Therefore, any type of modifications can be easily identified and discussed upon as well as pertinent changes can be carried out in the design well in advance. This eventually saves considerable time, efforts in reconstruction as well as money.
Architectural walkthrough, similar to 3D rendering has transformed the construction industry as it offers an experience that is entirely outstanding and exciting. With the benefits that it provides, it will eventually be a crucial tool for architects, designers as well as engineers across the globe. Architectural walkthrough is projected to have broader and superior applications in the forthcoming years for capital-intensive byzantine projects.
