What is 3d rendering?

In the simplest definition, 3D rendering is the creation of models in a 3-dimensional space. It is essentially a computer-generated object that can be viewed within a digital environment. It has also become the standard in animation, replacing time-consuming hand-drawn animation. Find out more on our blog.

What is 3d rendering used for?

3D rendering is changing the way that interior designers and architects represent future projects. These renderings are created using sophisticated computer software which accurately simulates real-world textures, lightings, and physics. Find out more on our blog.

How does 3d rendering help interior designers?

As an interior designer, one of the greatest challenge is communicating your amazing ideas and working within fast turnover.
