Using a 3D model during the early stages of a design project can yield large savings in both time and budget. By using 3D modeling and design owners are able to vet ideas and concepts early in the project delivery calendar . Many people are not adept at reading typical 2D floor plans. A presentation that shows them the concepts and build-outs being discussed in a way they can understand is very useful. You can generally build your project in a cheap way avoiding some possible headaches along the way.
Sketch Up and Revit are common applications used to generate a 3D model. Landscape design, structural ideas, interior decor, even furniture can be modeled and examined. Modern architects, engineers, and builders are looking to 3D design and CAD for solutions on a regular basis.
Technology is always changing and the new programs are very powerful and inclusive. Building Information Management or BIM systems now include Mechanical, Plumbing, and Electrical systems in the model. By including these systems in the design builders are able to see the interactions between structural elements and the demands of the MEP systems for the building.
3D designers will typically perform a site visit, taking measurements and photos for reference in creating the base model. Once the base model is created the owners selections can start to be included. Custom home design has come along way from old school blueprints and scale models. Finishes, textures, siding, paint colors even plants and landscaping can be included. Providing a detailed image of the project that the owner or client can relate to.
