3D rendering uses CAD technology to make a product or scene into a realistic image. It is an intricate process that requires the use of specialist programmes and 3D data that is stored by the computer. The benefits are manifold though and many designers increasingly come to rely on rendering.
Rendering opens up many new possibilities in design. It allows a design to become more ‘real’ and can show the overall design and individual components in a startling amount of detail. This can really help to inform the design process as the images created can be used to make product amendments and get a real feel for how they will look and work.
Rendering is so important for clients as well as for the designer. It gives the client the opportunity to feed back their thoughts and make changes, before the product even exists. This saves time and money in the process.
