Here are two recent examples of 3d models and renders that I prepared from a client’s 2d plan and elevation drawings. The first example is a living room space that is currently under construction, and the owner wanted to see what the proposed trusses would look like in the space. She had the shop drawings from the contractor, and as you can see, there is not much information to give a sense of how this would look in the space. The architect’s drawings showed a slightly simpler configuration, so the owner wanted to be able to compare the design options as well.
The second example is a residential renovation of a bedroom addition. The owner for this project wanted to have a built-in bunkbed, so I took the architect’s drawings to create a 3D model to show the builder and client. I was involved in the design as well, in that I was able to make adjustments to the design once I received feedback from the client and the builder. Using Sketchup, it was very quick to make different iterations on the design.
For both of these examples, I had access to digital files of the drawings, which allowed me to quickly make these 3D models and images, all within a reasonable budget.
