Architectural Interior Visualisation Training by Real-world Practitioners

Architectural visualisation has provided architects and interior designers a tool to display the client’s imagination in a life like model before the process of construction begins. However, using the tools in the right manner by undergoing training with industry experienced trainers help utilize the software to create the 3D model in a better manner and improve final output of the design model.

A book tells a story with words. A human mind reads it and lets the brain create an imaginary world while reading this story. Technology can take this imaginary world and make it possible for everyone to be a part of it by creating 3D images.

Architects and interior designers meet clients to understand what they envision for their new home. Showing only sketches to clients will not suffice,Guest Posting as clients today need to know what their homes will look like, before construction begins. Using 3D architectural visualisation, interior designers and architects can bring the client’s imagination to life by creating lifelike 3D models of their new home. This helps clients decide the amount of lighting required in each room, the colors to be used for exterior and interior elements of the home and the texture of the materials to be used, such as tiles, curtains and bathroom fittings.

Using 3D architectural visualisation has become a preferred method for architects and interior designers to showcase 3D models of building structures and their interiors. The reasons are as follows:

  • 3D designs provide precise dimensions to help draw correct lines
  • 3D models help clients see rooms from different angles and views
  • Design modifications to building structures can be made easily before construction, saving time and money
  • Software to create 3D models provides architects and interior designers various tools to enhance their creativity

Architects and interior designers use different software, such as Revit Architecture and 3ds Max, to create 3D models and 3D rendered images of a building. In the process of doing so, they face certain challenges. They can be:

Boring 3D Models

The main objective of creating a 3D model is to add life to a building. If a model is created with walls and floors that have no texture or color, the design seems lifeless. Using the right tools in sync with the technical dimensions of the design will serve the purpose of creating lifelike rendered images of the final home.

Unrealistic 3D Models

While trying to impress clients, architects and interior designers can go overboard and create unrealistic 3D models. Adding futuristic design elements to make the model seem unconventional can detract from the realistic feel a 3D model aims to provide.

Adding Unnecessary Design Elements

Quite often, architects and interior designers add human figures and scenes from nature in the background to make the model seem realistic. Adding such elements in every section of the model can distract the client from the main design.

To avoid such errors in the model, architects and interior designers can enroll with training institutes that offer certificate courses in Revit Architecture and 3ds Max and undergo training with industry experts. These courses are designed to train students on projects that have already been used by industry experts. The training provided in such courses helps not only in securing visualisation jobs in Mumbai, but also helps students understand the following:

  • The correct manner to use different tools/software provided
  • Fundamentals of planning a room, drawing details using drafting views and information about text and tags
  • Essential tools that help create full 3D architectural models and present them along with working drawings

Architects sometimes outsource the process of creating 3D models to CAD/BIM firms with a dedicated visualisation department. To apply for visualisation job in Mumbai and work with such firms, it is useful to learn software, such as 3ds Max and Revit Architecture, while working on an actual project. This experience can give valuable insight into the challenges faced on the job. This saves training costs to the firms, as experience in working on actual projects familiarises participants with typical requests by architects and the expectations of the end customer from 3D models.
