Frequently Asked Questions
How Long Does It Take To Create A 3d Architectural Rendering?
This depends on a few factors. Will you provide us with a 3D model or will we need to work directly from CAD drawings? How many images would you like of your project? How quickly will you be able to give us feedback in between each round of deliveries? How important is meeting a tight deadline? With these factors in mind, creating renderings can take anything from 1-6 Weeks. For a timeline estimation on a specific project, please contact us at [email protected] or +1 347-994-0951.
How Does Your Rendering Process Work?
We break down each project into small stages and set milestones with our clients. For 3d architectural renderings, we propose several different camera angles, prepare preview renderings, and then move on to the revision rounds. After the revision rounds, we move on to preparing the final renderings and can then start with additional products (3d animations, virtual tours, 2d floor plans, apps, etc) which follow a similar process. For a more complete guide on our rendering process, please check out this resource page.
Can You Create A Unique Style Of Images For My Project?
Yes, we are able to create images of a specific visual language for our premium clients. This process starts with learning about your preferences and creating a guideline specifically tailored to your brand. The result of this process is renderings (and other products) that become engraved into your brand identity.
Can You Work With My 3d Model? Is This Helpful?
Providing us with your 3D model is always better than just providing us with CAD drawings. That being said, most 3D models delivered by clients aren’t good enough to create photorealistic 3D renderings and therefore need to be optimized in order to achieve photorealistic results. We typically have more work with models that are created in engineering software (e.g. Revit, Rhino, etc.) and less work with models created in architectural software such as SketchUp and ArchiCAD.
How Many Rounds Of Revisions Do I Have Before The Final Renderings?
Our standard proposal includes two revisions but this can occasionally be adjusted, and if you are looking to save on costs then one revision may be a more suitable option. On the other hand, if your project is at an early stage then we would highly recommend going through more revision rounds to test out different design options and to set the final design in place. After the initial project briefing, your designated project manager will let you know what amount of the revisions will be advisable for your project.
Can I Choose The Angles Of The Renderings?
At the beginning of your project, we will send you a selection of drafts showing your project from several different angles so that you can choose the one(s) that you like the most. We only start creating photorealistic renderings once you’re happy with the angles.
Can You Enlarge The Renderings So That They Can Be Shown On A Billboard?
We can make the renderings as large as you need them to be. We only need to know the exact size that you need so that we’re able to schedule our production ahead of time. The process is very similar to that of creating standard renderings with us only needing to spend a little extra time on enhancing small details to make sure that the quality of the renderings is maintained when shown on a large scale printing. For a full guide on resolution for different types of renderings, please see here.
I Have A Rendering Created By Another Studio/In-House Team – Can You Improve Them?
Yes, we are able to improve any renderings created by your in-house team or by another studio as long as you are able to provide us with the rendering source files. If you have only an image and aren’t able to get your hands on the source files then we will only be able to use the image as a reference and will have to create the renderings from scratch. We carry out a lot of work that is a continuity of what architects begin with their in-house rendering teams. This process typically works with the in-house team creating renderings that are good enough to approve the design of a project and is then passed onto us (along with source files) to create photorealistic renderings for marketing purposes.
How Much Does Architectural Rendering Cost?
In most cases, the price varies between $ 500 – $ 5,000. This depends on the amount of work required to create an architectural rendering i.e. a small single family house can be created by one person within a couple of days whilst a multifunctional development requires a team of people working simultaneously. Also, the reputation of the rendering teams plays a role as more experienced teams can achieve better results in terms of image quality and can be quicker.
