Technology has deeply affected the global economy and its usage has been linked to improving living standards, marketplace transformations and more robust international trade. Technology ferries imagination to reality.
In architecture & designing industry multiple people are involved which include architects, engineers, planners & non-specialists to name a few. They all have different views for the process with different perspective, objectives, needs & wants in their minds.
Since the architectural world has evolved immensely over the past few years, with the use of advanced techniques, software & design-based programs engineers & architects are coming up with better designed and planned projects. One such technique is 3D Architecture Rendering.
3D Architectural Rendering has changed the dynamics of architectural & engineering industries for the better. It has changed the way we design, which was not possible 10-15years ago. It has definitely blown away the minds of clients with its realistic 3D design layouts which was not the case with the traditional flat blueprints. Plus the blueprints weren’t even easy to understand.
The term 3D Visualization is defined as “any technique for creating images or animations to communicate a message.” The term architectural rendering or architectural visualization is defined as “the art of creating 2-dimensional & 3-dimensional images showing the attributes of a proposed architectural design.” It is the process of producing an image based on 3-dimensional data stored within a computer.
Many rendering methods are available. These include the non-realistic wireframe through polygon based rendering, to more advance techniques like scanline rendering, ray tracing or radiosity.
For 3d Architectural Rendering; AutoCAD Applications, scanned hard copies or even hand drawings can be used. Due to their life-like images, they are also known as Photoreal rendering. A few among the several types of Photoreal Renderings are Still Renderings, Walk-through & Fly-by Animations, Virtual Tours and Panoramic Renderings. 3D rendering is also used for the representation of components for machine design and analysis in the engineering industry.
Some of the most widely used rendering software’s are: 3DS Max, Sketchup, Maya, Rhino and Cinema 4D. The rendering plugins used for these software’s include: VRay Renderer, Corona renderer, Mental Ray renderer, Octane renderer, Lumion Renderer, etc. The most widely used renderer is VRay.
Advantages of 3D architectural rendering:
As we know 3D Architectural Rendering has made a drastic impact on the architectural industry, it has also helped companies bring about huge improvements in efficiency and helped extensively in reducing costs.
The added advantages of 3D architectural rendering include:
Firstly for the question, ‘Is 3D architectural rendering the future of architecture & design?’, the future has already begun. Since software’s providing high-quality renderings have been operational for a few years now, it is already our present. Currently it is providing so many benefits that more and more people are incorporating it in their businesses.
In near future, 3D rendering will certainly evolve and more such techniques will iterate and come up which will work much faster as the processing power improves. The bottom line is that the future of 3D architectural Rendering holds enormous potential, that is yet to be utilised and be iterated & evolved making way for more innovations and much better artistic impressions.
With the rise of digital platforms, services and rapidly upgrading technologies, people had announced the end of the print era long before these technologies took full control. We’ve been hearing print is dead for quite a number of years now. But this is not true yet! Printing cannot die. At least not so soon.
Evolving technology and digitalisation in recent years has made way for new methods of printing and made printing a lot more accessible to the general public. In this era of emerging technologies, the concept of digital printing technology has taken over the market due to its quicker turnaround time and lower cost. Digital printing processes bypass the need for printing plates. Hence digital printing makes inexpensive home and office printing possible. This can be done directly either from a connected desktop or laptop, or even from some modern smartphones.
While home printing may be adequate for personal use, it is a different ball game for people using printing services to market their business. Businesses are still using print for direct marketing campaigns, promotional materials, brochures, catalogues and much more. Print is now seen as a higher quality, more tactile and more professional option to its online alternatives. With this we can conclude that businesses will always be in need of quality printing products, as well as the expertise and advice that they can expect with doing business with a professional print company.
Attractive printing products always grab attention, which bodes well for a company, and this is particularly the case with business publications and business cards. Cards printed on quality paper make a good first impression on those who receive them, whereas self-printed cards can often look cheap and unprofessional, and make people wonder about the quality of the products and services they will receive from the company.
A quality printed flyer will also help to attract more customers, and a professional printing company can advise on every aspect of the flyers, including design, type face, illustrations, colour of type, type of paper best used, and even the colour of the paper. A business will not get the same type of professional advice by looking at various websites for information.
Maintaining the quality of printing is very important to attract customers and create sales. How a business can rise with printed media hugely depends on its printing quality.
Ionic has turned out to be a boon for developers and development companies. As Ionic is a hybrid mobile application development platform, it has reduced the work for developers. Now developers have to invest less time in coding for the mobile platforms. Earlier developers had to code separately for Android, Windows, and iOS operating systems, but now Ionic has made it easy, as the same code is required for all the mobile platforms. The maintenance cost and development cost and time have been reduced.
Ionic is a front end Software Development Kit (SDK) which is built on the very efficient AngularJS framework. A single code can be used for many mobile platforms.
Experts say that Ionic and AngularJS is one of the most powerful and perfect matches in the field of web application development. All the mobile play stores applications are built using this combination.
Ionic shows transitions in styling according to the platform in use. It fits itself with the borderline and style of the mobile application platform, which makes the designing and developing part more interesting and innovative. Specifically required guidelines are followed by Ionic accordingly with the platform. The element display is well maintained and the device minutiae are followed. According to the device on which the application is running, the UI and build changes. This is a unique feature delivered by ionic.
