3D rendering is not for amateur artists. It requires creativity, technical skills and professional knowledge to transform an architectural concept to 3D. There is no standard pricing for these services, and may vary widely according to the firm’s years of experience, skills and portfolio.
Better the quality of the 3d rendering service, usually results in higher prices. A good quality, photorealistic 3D rendering that can be used for marketing purposes will cost an architect in the range of 4000 AUD to 20,000 AUD. However, poor quality images that are less appealing can cost only 600 AUD to 1400 AUD. A high quality image offers a high-definition, full-color rendering, depicting the landscape and building in detail with people, signs, cars etc. For example, rendering of a resort could show people on the beach under an umbrella, or people dancing in the clubhouse.
An interactive virtual tour of a property’s interior can range from 8,400 AUD to 1, 30,000 AUD. A virtual tour of a yet-to-be-built residential property would range from 8000 AUD to 70,000 AUD, while commercial property would cost on an even higher end. However, large, commercial complexes with multiple buildings can cost significantly higher.
A 2009 survey conducted by CG Architect, the most influential and reputable online magazine or community on architectural visualization, reveals that the average price for a high-quality 3D architectural stationary image is 1400 AUD – 3000 AUD for small to medium projects, while large projects start from 4000 AUD onward. For a video, the 3D animation costs between 7000 AUD and 14,000 AUD, and it could cost a bit higher depending on duration and complexity of video. The experienced and reputed studios that produce high quality work would charge higher prices. A less reputed firm on the other hand can charge less, but still produce the same high quality work. It’s always in your best interest to seek artists or studios with a strong architectural background and a sound knowledge of the construction industry. If the artists are not familiar with architectural background, you will need to assign someone from your firm to coordinate with them and this can add up to the costs.
3D rendering services technology is being increasingly used in various fields for visualization of various concepts. The 3D models are created and rendered through various advanced software available in market. As far as architectural visualization is concerned, 3D rendering plays a crucial role.3D models help visualize the building designs prior to physical creation. Almost all 3D models can be classified broadly into three categories. They are:
Rational B spine modeling
Rational B Spine Modeling: Also referred as patch modeling, this technique is generally employed to create 3D rendered designs of curved surfaces. The curve is initially created from two control points. When repeated in the desired fashion, these points build up the required skeletal model. This provides a higher level of flexibility while designing graphic designs.
Primitive modeling: This is the most basic form of 3D modeling available. It employs a combination of geometric shapes like spheres, cubes and so on for creating complex shapes or object model. This process can be carried out either with or without the aid of Boolean process.
Polygonal modeling: Polygon modeling is also known as edge extrusion. In this method, polygons represent the surfaces of the models in various arrangements. Polygonal modeling method is the most sought after method for the cases involving scan line rendering. This modeling technique has the advantage of requiring fewer adjustments than the other traditional methods.
3D rendering has modified the presentation of diagrams, charts, models and plans to a great degree. Architectural visualisation, to a large extent, has a visible effect on how designs plans and presentations can be done. This helps in preparing very realistic representations unlike the olden days where physical models were made to show how the structure will look like. Previous methods involved the making of life-size cardboard cut-out design structures to give customers a feel of the project. They were time consuming and laborious making the 3d rendering price very high. If there is an accident and if the structure is destroyed then all the labour that went in the construction of the dummy project goes waste.
Now with various techniques it is easy to create a design of the given object in 3D. This also clearly exhibits the dimensions and specifics of the design structure. These designs can be preserved. The customer or the vendor can make copies of the design so that under unavoidable circumstances of loss of data they have sufficient back-ups. It is also less time consuming.
3D also provides holographic representations. This is a new technology where holographs are used. They help in clear representation of objects in virtual space. Designs that are done using holograph need to be present on the 3D software first before transferring on to the holographic design software. 3D has also brought out the beauty of animation. Using 3D software the designs that looked like plain lines and sketches until yesterday, now have bloomed into beautiful live looked piece of art. This also gives the user a look of how the object will look like. For example, if there is a project of the house being done in 3D then the customer can view the actual look of the house, how the corridors flow, the rooms patterned etc.

We, read advertisers, have come a long way from just audio advertising, that is, we are not just on radio and we are moving on to visual advertising. Visuals make the greatest impact when compared to sounds or even words for that matter.
The tantalizing images we see these days in magazines, newspapers, and hoardings while you are driving for hours to go to work and dragging yourself back from work are all products of a creative genius working behind a Mac or even a PC.
High Quality 3D rendering software takes your average 2D blueprint and makes it come alive with colors, textures, and a realistic visual representation. When you look at such images, it seems so surreal that you may forget for a moment that it is only an image and mistake it for the real thing.
Let me remind you that this is not just for images; they make some excellent graphic videos too! So come to think of it, which industry today wouldn’t use this amazing technique to enhance their advertising efforts? The answer is the Real Estate industry!
