Step 1: Inputs for 3D Rendering
The client provided Rayvat Engineering with the following initial inputs.
- .dwg file of the elevations
- Architectural Plans PDF
- Reference Image for 3D Exterior Render for colors and styles
Step 2: 2D to 3D Modeling
For preparing the 3D Renderings, it is imperative to turn the 2D Plans comprising of elevations, floor plans, and sections into a 3D Wireframe model. For this, we utilize Autodesk Revit software.
In a timespan of 3 working days, Rayvat Engineering submitted a 3D Revit model along with snapshots from different angles for client review. Post a couple of markups. The Revit 3D Model approved for subsequent work of 3D Rendering.
Step 3: Rendering Inputs for 3D Exteriors
After freezing the 3D model, we move further with the application of finishing material like the ones listed below:
Siding: Hardie Plank Lap Siding
Color: Smooth Arctic White
Garage Doors: Reference image provided along with the detail of doors being black with windows at the top.
Stone Siding: Dark Rectangular pieces of 10″ x 6″ – Reference image provided.
Roofing: Black Shingles – Reference image provided.
Landscaping: Typical New Jersey Plantation, Reference images provided.
Camera Angle: 3/4th Camera Shot
Step 4: First Draft of Exterior Render
Based on the inputs, Rayvat Engineering provided the client with the first draft of 3D Rendering in 4 business days for feedback from the Client.
Feedback on First Draft Observations:
1. Windows are black
2. Corner trim is wider
3. The walkway is only between the garage and front door
Note – It’s best if the renders itself are marked for corrections. Subjective emails can sometimes be confusing as it can be ambiguous. Click here to read our blog on ‘How to provide the best feedback on 3D Renderings’.
Step 5: Second Draft of Exterior Rendering
Based on the feedback in the first round of markup, we submitted the second render in 2 businesses.
Feedback on the Second Draft
1. Garage door separator column to be checked.
2. Stone is not defined; it looks like brown paint on the walls.
3. A roof is blacker, (Ref provided)
4. No horizontal separators on the front windows
5. Stone Border around the Windows is wider in the plans
It is necessary to provide exhaustive feedback received from all stakeholders, as mentioned in the previous step, to make sure no changes made at the time of final delivery, which is the final step in our journey.
Step 6: Final Delivery in HD
All the changes in the second round of markups were incorporated, and an HD quality final deliverable was submitted. At this stage, we provide images with the watermark. Once the payment has been made in full, renders without watermark are submitted. Any corrections at this stage would be chargeable.
