Touring Your (Unbuilt) Dream Home: 3D Visualization in Architecture and Interior Design

Touring Your (Unbuilt) Dream Home: 3D Visualization in Architecture and Interior Design

This article originally appeared on Shapeways Magazine. Architects, developers, brokers, and interior designers often have to help their clients and prospective buyers envision a space that doesn’t exist yet. The traditional way to do this involved drawings made on drafting tables and hand-crafted models. However, technology has dramatically changed customer expectations, and over the past two decades glossy, photorealistic […]
