3D rendering is always considered as a good match for those who are engaged in design and manufacturing because it shows more than tell the highlights of the products. If you are looking to bring your design to life, we are confident to recommend our 3D rendering services, we are a team of professional 3D artists who pursues excellence, choose Aimir and you won’t be disappointed. And today, we will take 3D furniture renderings as an example to show you how we maintain high-quality services.
As for the project from design to development, we always adhere to the following 10 tips no matter how big or small the project is. Now, please follow us and explore the process of making stunning 3D renderings!
Step 1 – Gathering References
Before visualizing the furniture, necessary information like the source material, the blueprints, sketches, props or photographs will be collected. This is the first stage which requires as much information as possible so that we can avoid the chances of the misunderstandings and convey the ideas you want exactly. Generally, the speed of the process relies on the information our we receive. Therefore, we encourage specific numbers and figures rather than verbal descriptions which may cause a puzzle.
Step 2 – Setting the Stage
Sometimes, most of the clients would require a 3D visualization instead of a solid white background. In most cases, they use 3D design for a magazine catalog or an advertisement, that’s why we choose to have the furniture set in a real situation – allowing their customers to visualize the design easily. At the very start, we design the room from basic elements: floor, ceiling, blank walls, a rough plan for where the furniture will be put as well as other décor and textures. After that, our clients can choose any direction of the primary light source they want.
Step 3 – Bringing the 3D Furniture Home
After preparing the room, we will place the premade product or create it from scratch by using the resources gathered at first. At this stage, it is important to resize the furniture according to the room. Photorealistic 3D visualization can reduce the possibility of misleading clients. In the meanwhile, the position of the furniture and viewing angle will be adjusted until the best appearance of your furniture fully shown.
Step 4 – Lighting
With the 3D technique, it’s easy to control every aspect of shadows and lighting. We usually begin with the primary light source to create a realistic effect. In most cases, daylight would be the first choice since it is the base layer of the light. However, there is not only one single light source in real life. Hence, we will adjust them by bouncing the primary light off all the surfaces in the room. Meanwhile, we take other light sources (lamps and light fixtures, etc.) into consideration. Different light presents a different kind of texture in the room, the best one of which will be selected to match your product. In addition, we will make sure the shadow corresponds to the actual situation as much as possible.
Step 5 – Texture and Textile
Now, it’s time to decorate the room and create an atmosphere. When all the above steps finished, we can enter on the task of complementing the room. With the help of interior designer and the architects, we will establish a wonderful world together. The details of color and textures will produce various whole effects, for example, a warm cozy feeling or something compact. And we will add some tiny details to make the rendering more attractive, like the pallet around the furniture or the curtain blown by the breeze.
Step 6 – Decor
To liven up the design, some objects in our digital library will be added, such as rugs, cushions, vases and so on. Together they will help improve the overall look of the room, making it more organic and natural.
Step 7 – Camera Angles
With 3D visualization, we are free to choose any camera angle you like. The furniture is visualized as whole spaces instead of separate shots, which is convenient to exhibit its each and every nook and corner in presentations and promotional media. Meanwhile, we check whether the placement in Step 3 is right and whether everything looks visually comfortable.
Step 8 – The First Stage of Rendering
Here, we start to test our design by rendering software like 3DS max by running various checks. The errors detected will be immediately corrected, which is by far the most significant but time-consuming step.
Step 9 – The Final Rendering
At this stage, we will ask our clients to review the results of the project and adjust the renderings according to their suggestion. It also serves as a double-check to if there is something still needs to be improved.
Step 10 – Post Production Polishing
We hold the belief that details decide everything. At the last stage, our 3D artists will tune the trivial details (color, shadows, and highlights, etc..) in order to pursue perfection. Not until we are satisfied with the end product will we deliver the final renderings to our clients.
And these 10 tips are our secret. We do nothing special but do solid work. We have goals; therefore, we are strict about the quality of our services. We work with plans; therefore, we are clear about what to do at each step. We have rich experiences; therefore, we can grasp the demand for different projects. We have abilities; therefore, we are good at creating immersive 3D visualization. We’re happy to help you visualize your design concepts. Please feel free to contact us for more information.
