3D modeling- 8 reasons why its important in ArchitectureTechnology brings imagination closer to reality, the best example to illustrate this is, how 3D modeling has changed the presentation world of architecture designs. It is like pulling out the multi-dimensional images from your brain and painting them on a paper to see how it looks. The impact 3D modeling has, on presenting architectural services is undoubtedly the most transforming things to have ever happened. Let’s take an account of the architecture presentation benefits possible because of 3D modeling.

1. Realistic, easy, and quick

From understanding horizontal, vertical & diagonal lines of the 2D sketches in drawing to getting a one clear picture of the architectural services is what 3D modeling facilitates. Your design becomes more vivid and your clients can take a virtual tour of their dream home. You can also quickly check whether a new plan is viable or not. Moreover you can also check how small changes to the design would look like.

2. An image speaks a thousand words

3. Better for marketing and project approvals

The experience of going through a 3D model is more compelling & satisfying to a prospect than viewing a 2D drawing. The vivid imagery lingers in the prospect’s mind for a longer period of time and you stand a better chance of winning the customer. Similarly the project approval rate in real estate business is quicker when a 3D model is used.

4. Easy re-modeling and corrections

In a 3D model it’s easier to see the impact on the overall design when minor or major changes are made, this would help in finalizing the design without much cost and post-construction cost-incurring changes or corrections. It’s also accurate as the end construction shapes-up to the conceived output as deduced from the 3D model.

5. Impact on project execution

With a clear design it’s easier for the construction engineers to complete the project at low costs and as per the plan.
These technologies have a dramatic impact on project execution, including –

  • Less rework
  • Increased productivity
  • Fewer requests for information
  • Fewer change orders
  • Less cost growth
  • A decrease in time from the start of construction to facility turnover.

6. Boon for interior designers

You can design a life like model of a residential or commercial flat with all the furniture, wall paints and designs, show pieces, designer ceiling and so on to give your clients a compelling view of their dream home and or office building.

7. Measurements

This will tremendously help customers see and adjust arrangements of objects based on their sizes to achieve varied objectives like space, movement problems, room size corrections, and so on.

Various research studies have documented the benefits of applying 3D/4D tools specifically to the coordination of Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing, and Fire Protection (MEP/FP) systems on complex projects (e.g., Khanzode et al., 2005, Staub-French and Fischer 2001).

8. Fewer instructions and no language barriers

Unlike 2D designs which may need clear instructions on how to deduce design information, 3D designs are almost instruction-less and without any language barriers. It is natural for any human to understand 3D design and experience the virtual reality it creates.
