What are 3D Plans?
A 3D plan Service includes taking any floorplan, room or even furniture model and creating a 3D realistic model of it. You can even provide us with the colours, textures and materials that you would like to display and we will create a Presentation Ready 3D Rendering for your business or for your clients.
The 3D drawings that we create can be a complete design plan including models of furniture, buildings, landscapes, and even people for perspective. The 3D drawing process depicts this three-dimensional scene as a picture, created of a location and
perspective. We can even add realistic lighting, shadows, atmosphere, colour, texture, and optical effects such as the refraction of light or motion-blur seen on moving objects in order to create the most realistic 3D plan possible. Even though the final rendering is called 3D, these images are not the same thing as the 3D Movies that were popular where the audience wears special glasses. 3D Renderings are called 3D because of the way they are made, using computer models or floor plans to represent an actual room, object or building. The drawings sometimes take a long time, even on our top of the line speciality work station computers using the latest software.
Our 3D plans Manchester designers have always had a talent for conveying ideas through Sketches and 3D Models. We offer our 3D Plans service as a way to bridge the Gap between Reality and Fantasy, and allow Architects, Designer, Developers, and Homeowners (among others) to visualise the TRUE potential of their dreams.
Our 3D Rendering service specialises in providing our clients with top of the line realistic 3D drawing of their project, interior or exterior. We now work with contractors, builders, architectural firms, and interior designers all across Manchester and the UK providing 3D renderings, floor plans, elevations, and digital presentation boards to help bring their designs to life
A 3D Model goes along way to conveying an idea and solving problems before construction begins. A lot of time a Great 3D plan can help secure the financing and approval needed for a Project.
Our full Planning Application Service in Manchester uses the full power of the very latest architectural software, to provide a 21st Century Service that includes not only 3D views to assist at the planning stage, but a Virtual Reality model of your proposal, that can be viewed on an iPad or computer.
We are avid users of the latest architectural 3D plan software and extremely proficient with the 3D modelling techniques to help our clients in Manchester and the UK visualise their building and architectural drawings in a new light. Our designs have the Power and ability to effectively express your ideas, with the flexibility to display in a variety of styles and formats.
The 3D views are great for displaying the form of the building, and for explaining exactly what is being proposed. They are far easier to understand, as they are more realistic than the traditional flat elevations. We can generate models of all types of structures including houses and homes, Banks, Schools, Churches, Community Centres, Distribution Facilities and more.
We can also easily provide you with a Virtual Reality file for our clients in Manchester that can enable you to literally fly around the property, or walk around the internals using your iPad or computer.
The 3D model also enables us to see what ‘actual’ space is created, so we can ensure that layouts are maximised and are functional.
Due to the accuracy that we like to work to, we usually recommend a full measured survey of the property to ensure the 3D model is as accurate to the original as possible.
We would begin a Client review (phone calls are usually best), and set parameters around your Goals. Following discussions with you, our client, we will create a number of feasibility plans giving you alternative options that meet your needs.
Once we have agreed upon a layout, we will then workup the model in a style that takes on board your comments, and meets what we believe the local planning authority would accept.
When you are happy with our proposal we will put together a full planning application set of drawings and forms, and submit electronically.
When the application is submitted we will fully liaise with the Planning Authority to ensure as smooth a process as possible, and acting promptly upon any communications or directions received.
Our preferred method of communication is via email, as well as the computer model, we will send you proposals on A4 PDFs to enable easy printing, and keep you fully updated throughout the process.
Our initial quote will cover ALL of our costs to take the project through to a decision – as long as the process follows the path detailed above, there will be no additional add-on costs.
Who should use this level of service?
When the client wants to have a good understanding of the proposed layout and design, the 3D computer model enables you to fully explorer from the comfort of your sofa.
For contentious or complicated applications where imagery from a 3D computer model can be used as a strong and powerful planning tool.
Where the client wishes to make best use of all spaces, a 3D computer model enables us to see in reality what space is available, whether it is usable, and how it interacts with other construction components (i.e. can you stand at the toilet or in the shower, does the door hit the underside of the roof or stairs).
When a proposal is to work within or adjoin and existing structure, using a 3D model we can often create simpler use or detailing during the design stage, that could result in easier and more cost effective construction when building.
If later on you require illustrations, presentations or animations of your project, this service level will make production of such imagery cheaper, as the basic model already exists.
What projects are not suited to this service level?
None – This service level is suitable for all project types as it encourages accuracy and understanding.
All Planning Service Applications commenced before the end of June 2014 will receive a 3D Print of their Proposed Building.
