The renderer understands photography, lights and colors and assembles all these notions with the aim of obtaining a realistic image, which not only arouses the feeling of looking at a photograph but which is able to convey a message and emotions. Let’s see in detail what a designer has to do to make a photorealistic rendering, that is, how to create a photorealistic image of an object or an environment that does not exist physically. For the Architektur Visualisierung this is important now.
The render professional presses the start of his project by starting a CAD program, an environment in which he will be able to draw the shapes that make up his project whether it is an object or a room by entering the correct measurements. If the project in question is a room, he will export a 2D project from the CAD program, which will be the basis for the next phase, the modeling one. If instead, it is an object, in the CAD program the designer will set up a 2D drawing in a plan and a section that will be imported to continue with modeling on another program.
In the modeling software, the renderer will spend most of his time because this is where he will test his artistic skills. It will implement the object drawn in a scene modeling phase and thanks to a plugin called Vray it will insert the lights, it will determine the framing and finally, it will insert the materials of the objects mapping phase. Thanks to this third phase, the renderer will get the final render and then complete the project by launching the rendering.
To add minutia to the project, sometimes the designer uses post-production programs like Adobe’s Photoshop, where he will add the final touch of refinement.
The advantages of 3D Rendering
3D rendering is the perfect way to give shape to any idea or project. It can be used in any project, from the architectural to the advertising to the cinema one.
We, therefore, see the advantages of this technology:
3D rendering – if we imagine it in a company’s everyday life can greatly facilitate the entire team’s work processes. A company that produces bathroom furniture, which designs, produces and sponsors its products in-house can speed up its industrial process thanks to this technology.
Once the tap in question has been designed, it can be modeled and rendered by following all the steps seen above. The result of this operation the definitive rendering can be used both by the marketing department to create the communication material, and by the production department for the creation of the prototype.
The rendered render will need to be modified based on the destination department. In the case of the marketing department, it will be improved with lights and post-production to make the photorealistic and emotional image to adapt the image to communication such as catalogs, websites, video tutorials, advertising pages, etc.
A different case for the production will require a 3D model that has the essential features to be processed by a CAD-CAM program that will transmit the information to the numerically controlled machine.
3D rendering is, therefore, a valid solution to reduce a company’s production time. Thanks to 3D rendering, design costs can be reduced. When something is designed, there are many reasons why sometimes it is necessary to make changes. These reasons may be due to uncertainty or simply experimentation. With 3D rendering, projects can be quickly modified and tested.
