FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT FACTORS IMPACT THE PRICING OF FLOOR PLANS & DOLLHOUSES?
The main factor that impacts the pricing of 2D, 3D Floor Plans and Dollhouse Renderings is the size of the space that will be shown. For example, a 2D floor plan showing a 1,000 square ft space will be cheaper than one that shows a 2,000 square ft space. The same goes for Dollhouse renderings, with a rendering showing 2-3 apartments being cheaper than one that shows 5. Moreover, the price will be cheaper if we can re-use the assets from 3D Interior Renderings. 2D Floor Plans are usually cheaper than 3D Floor Plans.
ARE 2D AND 3D FLOOR PLANS THE SAME PRODUCT?
No. 2D Floor Plans are created directly from CAD drawings whilst we need to build a 3D model in order to create a 3D floor Plan (or a Dollhouse). Moreover, we use different pieces of software for each of the 2 types of products.
CAN I CREATE 3D FLOOR PLANS & DOLLHOUSES FROM 3D INTERIOR RENDERINGS?
Yes, having assets from 3D Interior Renderings are very helpful to create 3D Floor Plan & Dollhouses and helps to save on costs.
CAN I CREATE 2D FLOOR PLANS FROM 3D INTERIOR RENDERINGS?
No, because we don’t use 3D assets to create them. However, we can use 3D Interior Rendering as a reference and make sure that the color and materials are matching.
CAN 3D FLOOR PLANS & DOLLHOUSES BE USEFUL FOR ONLINE INTERFACES?
Definitely. Floor Plans that show all of the units can be used to show which units are available as well as additional details. They can also be used as maps to show the user’s location when going through a Virtual Tour.
HOW CAN I SAVE ON COSTS FOR 3D FLOOR PLANS & DOLLHOUSES?
These products are always cheaper when part of a package with 3D Interior Renderings as we can reuse the assets for both products.
WHAT DO I NEED TO START?
We need to be provided with the layouts for the interior space (for example in AutoCAD) as well as receiving information about the material and FF&E specs. Alternatively, we can gather this information from any interior renderings of the spaces that may have been created beforehand.
CAN YOU CREATE 3D A FLOORPLAN THAT CAN BE ROTATED IN REAL-TIME?
Yes, we are able to use technology that allows us to create this type of 3D Floor Plans. The difference is that the final product will be an online page instead of a graphic file.
I DON`T HAVE THE DESIGN FOR ALL THE UNITS, CAN YOU SUGGEST SOMETHING AND THEN REVISE IT LATER?
Yes, we can propose the layout and help with the design based on our experience with other clients on similar projects. In this case, it will be helpful if we can receive references for the design that you have in mind.
CAN YOU ADD PEOPLE?
Yes, but this is usually only necessary when creating dollhouses as it is useful to compare human height with other vertical dimensions of the apartment.
UNDER WHAT CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD I INVEST IN A 3D DOLLHOUSE?
Our clients usually go for 3D Dollhouses when they need to shown apartments that have more than one level and they are used to graphically explain have different floors connect to each other. When used alongside Floor plans, dollhouse renderings can give a very good idea of an apartment`s layout & functionality even if the apartment is big.
