Also, you can contact us and hire our team for best architectural 3d rendering services!, here are few samples from our portfolio.
And, here are some topics we will cover in this article so that you can hire a better 3d rendering company...
What is architectural rendering in actual?
Basically, the architectural rendering is only 3d visualization of a building from inside and outside. And, it's play a big role to drive architectural and real state industries.
If visualizer present a better 3d images or videos then a building owner can understand it easily, that, what he is going to invest on, and this clarification is most important for a building owner.
What is photorealistic 3d visualization?
A photorealistic architectural 3d visualization is a digital representation of the building that gives the client an idea of how it will look like by showing all realistic things and environment around the building.
The 3d rendering is created by using high resolution computer generated imagery and modeling software. The software that helps to create realistic images with textures and lighting that are as close to reality as possible.
This type of visualization is also called "actual visualization" because it's so realistic and looks like a actual scene. That're most often used in the marketing industry to show off the property, but that can be used for any number of purposes, including presentations, sales pitches, or just for fun.
What are some popular types of architectural rendering?
3D Floor Plan Rendering
The most common technique for 3D floor plan rendering is called ray tracing, which traces rays from the projector into the scene, and calculates how much light each pixel gets from each ray. The more rays that are traced, the more realistic will be the final image. This is done by projecting the 3D model from various angles to get a set of 2D images called projections. These projections are then combined in different ways to create an illusion of depth on the screen.
The exterior rendering is the first step in creating an architectural visualization. It is a computer-generated image that displays the building design from the outside.
A 3D rendering of an exterior has to be photorealistic and accurate, so it can be used for marketing purposes, such as for a website or brochure. The rendering should also have textures and materials applied to it.
There are many software programs that can be used for exterior rendering, including Autodesk 3ds Max, Maya or Blender. Some people also use programs like Adobe Photoshop or Gimp to make adjustments to their renderings before they export them as a JPEG or PNG file.
One of the most difficult parts of planning a building is the design. It requires designing the interior and exterior, which is a lot of work for architects. With 3D rendering, we can now visualize what a building will look like before it is built.
3D rendering is used by architects to create virtual models of buildings and other structures in order to show clients what they are going to get. Architects use these models to show their clients how the place will look like once it has been built. They also use them when they need to submit proposals on architectural competitions or when they are bidding for jobs with other companies.
Floor Cut View Rendering
A cut view is an orthographic projection of a three-dimensional object, where the object is viewed from one side. It is a type of orthographic projection that shows one side of the object in detail while obscuring the other sides.
Panoramic 360° Rendering
The panoramic 360° rendering is a technique that is becoming more and more popular in the field of architectural rendering. It allows architects to show their clients what the building will look like without having to physically build it.
Since panoramic 360° rendering is not a physical object, it can be used in many different ways. For example, it can be used to create virtual tours of homes that are not yet built and give people the opportunity to experience them before they are constructed.
Virtual Tours (Walk Through) Rendering
The virtual tour is a walk through of a space. It can be a building, an interior, or an exterior. It can even be a fictional space. A virtual tour is created by rendering the space in 3D and providing the viewer with the ability to see the space from any angle or direction.
In this section, we will talk about how architectural rendering services are used in tendering for virtual tours.
A lot of architectural firms offer walkthrough rendering as part of their service package for prospective clients. This is because it has become standard practice to provide prospective clients with a virtual tour during the tender process so that they can get an idea of what their investment will look like once it's complete.
Bird Eye View Rendering
The bird eye view rendering is a type of architectural rendering that shows a building from above, as if you are flying over it. This type of rendering can be used for various purposes, such as marketing purposes or for architecture competitions where the goal is to have an abstract perspective on the building without any distractions.
The first use case for bird eye view rendering may be the marketing of new buildings because this type of renderings can create more interest in potential buyers and investors by showing what they can expect when they enter their future home. The second use case may be architectural competitions because participants want to show their creativity and what they have accomplished with their design skills and this means that they want to present their work from an abstract point-of-
What are some advanced software (tools) for architectural rendering services?
Here are some latest tools for architectural rendering services, we are using...
Lumion (3D Rendering Software)
V-ray (3D Rendering Software)
Google SketchUp (3D Modelling Software)
3ds Max (3D Modelling Software)
How much do architectural renderings cost?
Architectural rendering cost matters according to the project size and rendering quality. Here we have some examples based on project size and quality of rendering...
Some companies charge according to project type, here are some types projects, (3D Floor Plans, Interior Design, and Exterior Elevation etc.)
But we charge according to the size of project and the quality you are expecting, here is our simple and reliable pricing list...
For example, if you want a 3D for a room with 2 views then we count your project as a medium size project. Now the other factor is quality you are expecting, if you are okay with affordable rendering quality then you have to pay $150 USD only. If you want photorealistic rendering then the price will be $750 USD only for the medium size project. as below,
Affordable Rendering Quality
Small Size Project (Single View) $125 USD Per Project
Medium Size Project (Two Views) $150 USD Per Project
Large Size Project (Three Views) $175 USD Per Project
Here is the sample for affordable rendering quality. click here
Photorealistic Rendering Quality
Small Size Project (Single View) $500 USD Per Project
Medium Size Project (Two Views) $750 USD Per Project
Large Size Project (Three Views) $999 USD Per Project

What are some powerful techniques for architectural rendering?
Working on Architectural Detailing
Architectural detailing is an important part of the architectural 3d design process, because it gives the 3d visualizers details that they need in order to create the 3d render.
Architectural drawings are preliminary drawings that show how certain aspects of a building or structure will be constructed, but they don't provide enough information for construction purposes until it’s visualize in 3d rendering software.
Using 3ds Max or 3D SketchUp for Modelling
The 3d rendering process can be a lengthy and tedious task. This is why many people choose to use 3ds Max or 3D SketchUp for architectural 3d modelling. These softwires are easy to use and have many features that make the rendering process more efficient.
3ds Max and 3D SketchUp are two of the most popular programs for architectural modelling, but they have different features that make them better suited for different tasks.
For example, if you need to create a model from scratch then you should choose SketchUp because it is easier to learn than Max. However, if you want to create photo-realistic renderings then Max is the way to go because it has more advanced rendering features like raytracing and atmospheric effects.
Using V-ray or Lumion for Texturing
Before the rendering artists can create a 3D render, they need to texture the object that is to be rendered. Texturing for render is done in two ways - with v-ray or lumion. V-ray and Lumion are two different software packages that are used for texturing before rendering accordingly.
V-Ray is an application that can be used for rendering, but it also has a texturing feature that makes it useful for texturing before rendering. It has the ability to control the colors of light and reflections off surfaces by using different textures on different parts of a surface, which is not possible with Lumion.
V-Ray also offers more control over the way light behaves when it’s cast on surfaces, which is important when it comes to whether your render will look realistic, but Lumion done tgis job with ready to use effects.
Focusing on Lighting Effects
The lighting is an integral part of any rendering. It's important to understand the different types of lighting and their effects on a scene in order to create the best looking render possible.
There are three main types of lighting: ambient, directional, and point light. Ambient light is usually a global illumination which means it affects everything in the scene equally.
Directional light comes from a specific source and casts shadows in all directions. Point light emits from a point in space with no directionality or falloff, meaning that it affects only objects close to it.
Choosing the right type of lighting for the render will help set moods and emphasize parts of the environment that you want your viewer to focus on.
Setting Camera Angles
There are two types of camera angles that are used in architectural rendering. These are the high angle and the low angle. The high angle is when the camera is positioned above the building and it captures a wide view of it.
This type of camera angle is used to show off a building’s height. The low angle is when the camera is positioned below the building and it captures a wide view of it. This type of camera angle is used to show off a building’s depth or how far into the distance you can see from one point to another.
The use cases of these two types of angles depend largely on what kind of project you are working on and what perspective you want to take on your renders.
Using Region Render
Region rendering is a quick and easy way to check the final render quality before the final render. All you need to do is select a region in your 3D model, set up your camera, and you are ready to go. It saves a lot of time because you don't have to wait for the whole scene to be rendered, so that a 3d visualizer make sure for the good rendering quality.
Check Everything Carefully Before Final Render
What is the role of "Photoshop" in architectural rendering?
We use Photoshop software to improve the quality of images so that our clients can present a 3d model very effectively that will help to close their deals easily. So, you can understand that Photoshop is very important software for architectural rendering services.
