Adopt These Powerful 3D Exterior Rendering Tricks

Beach House Exterior 3D Visualization Rendering


It takes out-of-the-box ideas, smart execution, a creative mind and intelligent concepts to create something new. When we look around, we can see where we were 10 years ago and where we are everywhere today.

Why do people adopt new technology? The reason behind this is simple - they want to get the job done smartly and easily, rather than spending countless hours in analysis. Innovative ideas changed the way we get things done. With the same concept, architectural rendering companies have chosen 3D views over 2D images.

Be it exterior or 3d Interior Rendering Services, visualizing architecture is one such innovation that has changed the way architects, designers, stakeholders, property owners, real estate experts, contractors, and homebuyers explore any site.

Get some rock-solid tricks for a 3D exterior rendering.

Include the sun’s position

If you include the exact position of the Sun when creating the exterior rendering, it will give the same essence to the design. In this step, you need to make sure that everything is exactly as you expect. For example, if you ignore the position of the sun when designing a draft, you may lose the attractiveness of the design. If this has happened, the real-life experience of manufacturing may leave your customer dissatisfied. Just as we consider actual lighting when taking a snap, the same applies to a 3D rendering project, be it exterior or interior.

Shadow of objects

If you get a basic idea about the position of the Sun, it will all go smoothly. You just need to align everything with the sunlight and shadow of the objects it creates. Here, you need to make sure that the shadow you create for any object on the outer side of the construction can create an attractive result for the entire exterior rendering. You can also add shadows of unseen objects to help the client visualize how it will look.



We would recommend adding 3D or 2D vegetation elements to the foreground of your external render. Also, you should never forget about adding them to the background of your render. Undoubtedly, creating 3D drawings for vegetation is much more difficult than 2D, but experts know the smart ideas. Keep both these 2D and 3D flora separate from each other to add weight to the effort. Plus, keep color and pattern separate to add the perfect layering to the project.



This will depend on the area or site where you plan to work. If it's an urban area, you'll need to make sure to add cars or other vehicles to the exterior. In addition, you can practice simple details like a reflection on the window or a license plate number highlighted on a car to add a sense of reality. Also, add some people inside the vehicle as this will make your customer feel that they are part of the picture.

It doesn't end here, there are many other careful strategies that architectural rendering companies like to give a personal touch to 3D images.
