3D Modelling Has Changed The Way We Design
We used to plan and design our homes the old-fashioned way, with pencil and paper. But thanks to 3D modelling software, we can now create a more accurate representation of what our home will look like before any construction begins. This has changed the way we design homes, and it's easier than ever to get started!
3D modelling is a powerful tool that helps architects and clients engage in meaningful conversations about the design of their homes. It sparks important discussions to avoid costly mistakes or misunderstandings down the line.
Let me give you an example.
A client wants to visualise their ideas for floor finishes in their new home and wants to test how their ideas will look. So how do we go about that?
The design is already drawn in detail in 3D and so we can swap out the previous floor finishes with new ones (obtained from the manufacturers for accuracy) and we can change the wall, door and skirting colours to match the ones the client likes by matching a Dulux or Farrow and Ball colour. The resulting 3D image shows how all the different materials work together.
This approach helps us because we can check everything works together from every angle and it helps the client by giving them a vision of the design well in advance of the builders ordering and installing the finishes. That avoids surprises and mistakes that are expensive to put right and delay completion.
The information that the builder needs is then extracted directly from the 3D model ensuring accuracy.
The software we use is free to clients and works on any computer, tablet or even your smartphone.
