If you require custom-created furniture for a 3D rendering project, the pricing will be on the higher side. Adding generic furniture will be quicker and easier for your artist and will result in lower costs; however, you may or may not get the final aesthetics that you have in mind. Typically a studio will have a large library of optimized 3D elements like furniture, cars, human figures and so on which can be chosen to add visual interest and scale in your 3D image. Reusing these resources will lower your costs, while custom creating individual pieces, or purchasing them from online libraries, will result in a higher cost outlay. Studios will charge extra based on the level of customization required, and the more complex the detailing, the higher will be the costs. If you wish to save on costs, then you should avoid customization.
As you can see, all these factors will impact the production costs of your Architectural 3D Visualization. The 3D rendering studio should always give a clear indication to the architects about all these cost factors, and should also let them know that the time schedules can also change based on the exact requirements and number of change requests. In fact, a studio should always outline their working processes so that there is no ambiguity, and should also request the architects to be involved in the production at an earlier stage so that edits, if any, can be minimized. It’s a good idea to have a contract laid out that clearly mentions the cost and time for extras, the number of iterations and revisions that can be done at no additional cost, the scope of the project and so on. It is always best to be as transparent as possible so that the 3D rendering services studio and the architects or designers are completely on the same page, in order to get the best outcomes at the best possible prices.
