Residential Housing CGI Devon

residential house CGI external rendering Devon

At Offplan3d, we take pride in transforming 2d architectural plans into captivating 3d visual realities. This basic project in Devon exemplifies our dedication to creating eye catching 3d Computer Generated rendered representations for estate agent marketing, breathing life into blueprints and designs.

The supplied architects’ plans and elevations were used to build the basic 3d house model. For added realism, CGI surface materials were then added to the 3d model.

Next, the basic house model was ‘set dressed’ by adding details such as curtains, plants, people and cars. Finally, CGI lighting and skies were added along with cameras to take the images below.

Our property marketing CGI work covers Devon, the South west and also further afield.

The interactive 3d model to the right was added by ourselves as a quick test.

Although obviously unfinished it is useful to showcase what is possible in online property marketing.

A finished example of a 3d model that we fully optimise for speed and realistic lighting can be seen here.

Van Guard manufacturing

There were multiple jobs under discussion for this large manufacturing client. The first was for a 7 meter wide exhibition backdrop. A variety of floor surface materials were tried out as well as different location options. There were also catalogue CGI images, interactive 3d models and videos to follow (2016).

The interactive 3d model below was built for the client from scratch. The 3d model we built is around 10 times faster to load and interact than the original CAD model. Also  photo-real lighting is ‘baked’ into the model along with using ‘real time’ lighting and reflections. This allows quick and efficient interaction with any users device.

The interactive 3d model below was built to demonstrate how we could solve the clients marketing problem. The shelving units inside a small van interior would be very difficult to convey to a customer using photography or video. A 180 degree ‘fish-eye’ lens on a camera would have a lot of distortion. Similarly using a video camera and rotating 360 degrees would lead to motion sickness (unless done very slowly, which would lose the viewers’ attention).

We achieved this by making an interactive 3d model which the customer can fully navigate in 3d space. We also made the van interior only visible from one side.

Facebook 3D Posts

Nextbase CGI image

This interactive model has been embedded from a Facebook 3D post. These type of posts use a native Facebook 3D format which is set to become the new standard for online 3D, which will include Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality.

The mobile device navigation uses the gyro, accelerometer and compass to good effect. PC navigation is via mouse/pad, there are some added features when viewing the 3D Post on a Facebook webpage or App.

The 3d models required for these Posts have to be very efficiently put together. For example the original CAD model may be 100 MB, our polygon models for rendering videos or stills maybe 30MB but for Facebook 3D Posts the model must be under 3 MB.

The viral marketing potential for anything attention grabbing on Facebook, such as these 3D Posts, is huge.

We have tried out various VR Helmets such as Occulus Rift, HTC Vive and Samsung Gear. However impressive they may be we are mindful that they are yet to be widely adopted. As such we don’t feel they currently offer our clients an efficient way to communicate their ideas.
