How to Get Started with 3D Visualization and 3D Modeling?

3D Architectural visualization and 3D architectural modeling are the important skills required for every architectural and real estate development business.

Architects require them to showcase their virtual designs and stakeholders need them for sales and marketing. Before we jump into an in-depth discussion, let’s understand the brief about these terms.

What is 3D Modeling?

A mathematical representation of a surface of an object such as a water bottle or a grand building like Burj Khalifa in three-dimensional form has been created using various software. 3D Modeling is further explained as a physical body in a three-dimensional space connect through lines, triangles or curved surfaces.

What is 3D Visualization?

3D visualization is also referred as the process of developing three-dimensional graphical content to represent an idea of the future architecture or any other object using 3D rendering software. It is also termed as 3D rendering, 3D graphics, computer-generated imagery (CGI) etc.

Once you have understood the basics, it would be easier to make a path towards learning more about it. Whether you are a budding architect or a 3d visualization firm, you need to be clear about your concepts before making heavy decisions on developing a 3D rendering and visualization. Are you planning to learn 3D Modeling or visualization? Do you think it would add worth to your business or career in some way? Why do you need to know about it when you can easily outsource the service? We have spoken to many architects and artists to understand the value of knowledge one can gain in the architectural industry. And, why do they need this knowledge even if they outsource the service to someone else?

Let’s begin with the discussion on the very common question asked by many newcomers who are thinking of a career as a 3d modeler.

Don’t you think that this field is saturating already?

A skill based profession never saturates like 3D modeling which is quite widespread and required in almost all industries, for example, in an animation industry,  the advertising industry, the films & entertainment industry, an architectural industry, a science research industry and so on. Just think about it, if there is a growth in virtual technology, it is automatically would want more 3D modelers to create a base. Let’s say if someone wants to develop a new house or renovate the old one, they would definitely consider 3D architectural visualization as the first step which comes right after 3D architectural modeling. Similarly, when you want to create a new product idea or re-design your brand packaging, you need a 3D modeling service. We have never imagined that almost every industry (at present or in future) depends on the three-dimensional services. In simple words, the whole wide world needs you (3D Modelers)!

Do you think everybody can be a 3D Modeler? What do you need as an essential element to become a successful one?

One should be technically sound or at least be familiar with computer techniques. You should be passionate about working digitally since that’s where you would be spending most of your hours. An essential skill required to be a successful architect is the passion for it.

Apart from this, if you have a perfect sense of spatial awareness, it would be an add-on advantage. Even if you are an architectural company, you need to be educated about the correct detailing of the 3D models and visuals before you make your decisions on the quality or the cost of your project with the outsourcing firm.
