What is 3D Architectural Rendering?
Have you been wondering what all the hype about 3D rendering is? 3D renderings are computer-generated images of your residence or commercial building that allow architects and planners to visualize a proposed development.
While this technology has been around for several years, they have only recently become widely used in the planning process.
One reason for their increased use is that they have become increasingly realistic, thanks to advances in computer technology.
As a result, 3D renderings are now an essential tool for architects and planners who want to ensure that their projects meet the highest standards of quality and design.
Another reason for the popularity is that they offer a much more accurate representation of a proposed development than traditional 2D drawings. This is because renderings take into account the height, width, and depth of a proposed construction project, whereas 2D drawings only show the project from one perspective at a time.
As a result, 3D renderings provide a more complete picture of a proposed development and can help to identify potential problems or visuals that might not be apparent from a 2D drawing.
In short, architectural renderings are an essential tool for anyone who wants to create high-quality, realistic plans for a new development. For this reason Green Home Installations has invested heavily in this technology to ensure our customers, architects, and planners have the best tools to plan any build.

The Benefits of Using a 3D Rendering
3D rendering has become increasingly popular in recent years, particularly in the architectural industry.
In the architecture industry, renderings are often used to visualize a space before it is built, which can help to identify potential problems and make modifications early on in the design process, often before additional costs are incurred.
In addition, renderings can also be used to create construction documents and obtain building permits. Ultimately, 3D rendering is a versatile tool that can be used for a variety of purposes.
When it comes to business or architecture, renderings can provide valuable insights and save time and money in the long run.
Additional benefits of 3D architectural renderings include:
- The ability to create a realistic and accurate representation of the finished product
- You can analyze your project from multiple angles and perspectives.
- Making changes to the design without having to expensively rebuild or redesign the entire project.
- The ability to add or remove features from the design as needed.
- Renderings can help you save time and money while still getting an accurate representation of your final product.
How Are 3D Architectural Renderings Created?
Sketch and Model Boundaries are Created:
The first step in the 3D rendering process is to define the building boundaries and create sketches of the architecture you want to build. This will help to conceptually communicate your building concept to the CAD (computer-aided design) operator. While it seems counterintuitive to create sketches of what will be created later on in 3D, these drawings help to limit the number of changes that will have to be done later on. Ultimately this saves time and effort in the project.
3D Model is Developed:
Once the sketch and model boundaries are defined, the 3D CAD operator will begin creating a 3D model of the building. At first the 3D model will be simple shapes that resemble blocks and geometric shapes. As time goes on the CAD operator will further refine the shapes until the model will more and more resemble the architectural design you will want.
Design Elements are Added:
Once the 3D model is created, the CAD operator will begin incorporating design elements into the computer model. These elements will include colors, textures, lighting, windows, doors, flooring, and furniture. This phase takes the computer model from a simple concept to what the building will look like fully designed.
3D Rendering of Final Model:
The final stage is to create 3D renderings of the building. Rendering converts the computer model of the building into photo-realistic views. Depending on the complexity of the project, these renderings may also be generated as video or interactive walkthroughs of your project!
Examples of our 3D Architectural Renderings
Here are some of our 3D renderings of projects made with requests from some of our real customers. These renderings are delivered along with plans including measurements and materials schedules showing in full color detail what their finished project may look like.
