See What Your House Will Look Like BEFORE You Build It— Get A 3D Rendering from Viz Source —BYHYU 052
If you’re anything like me, you like to actually see what you’re getting before you pay for it. But, what do you do when you’re building a house? I know you’ll have blue prints, but for some of us blue prints are difficult to read and visualize. For some reason my brain has trouble translating blue prints into a good mental image.
Wouldn’t it be nice to see a 3D, photograph-like image of what your house will look like before you build it? To have a color picture and maybe even an animated aerial video of the outside or inside of your house? Then you could show it to contractors and suppliers to ensure that they know exactly what you want to build?
Today, you’ll hear from Rob Clasby, CEO and Founder of Viz Source, the Rendering Company. Since 2006, Viz Source has been in the business of providing photorealistic 3D images and animations for all types of projects, including new homes. We’ll get to that interview in just a moment, but let’s define 2 pro terms this week: Architectural Rendering and CAD
An Architectural Rendering is a 2D or 3D image or animation that shows the characteristics of a proposed architectural design, and it’s often completed with the aid of computer software.
CAD stands for computer-aided design or drafting. Sometimes it’s referred to as Auto CAD. It’s software that’s used by architects, engineers, drafters, and designers to create blueprints or renderings. This is in contrast to drawing blueprints by hand, which some professionals still do. But many feel that CAD software is more efficient than hand drawing.
Let’s move on to our interview with Rob Clasby, founder and CEO of Viz Source, the Rendering Company.
Rob is an entrepreneur who started Viz Source in 2006. Viz Source creates photorealistic renderings and animations. They have also recently gotten into augmented and virtual reality, which works sort of like the Pokeman game.
Most of the renderings done by Viz Source are of single family homes or multifamily units. They work with homeowners, builder, and architects.
Homeowners can come with completed plans, ideally CAD plans, or with some general ideas of what they want and the designers at Viz Source will help them conceive their plan.
All of their project coordinators come from a design background, so they can help with design decisions.
Renderings can be expedited and done overnight, but the typical turn around time for a full color draft is about 5 business days. Prices vary, but the average exterior or interior rendering is $495. Architectural animations are also available and they are movies that show what it would look like to walk around the house.
Viz Source has a 98% Client satisfaction rating and the vast majority of their projects are completed on time.
Special thanks to Rob Clabsy, for telling us about the services provided by Viz Source. They have completed thousands of renderings for clients world wide since 2006. Check them out at www.vizsource.com.
It's quiz time.
1. What does CAD stand for?
CAD stands for computed aided design or drafting. CAD is software that’s used by architects and designers to create renderings, which are 2D or 3D architectural images.
2. How much does the typical rendering cost at Viz Source?
Prices vary, but the typical rendering of a not too complex single family family home costs about $495. And you can usually get a full color draft in about a week.
