architecture models virtual

Three-dimensional scaled virtual models, are another exceptionally good way to help clients visualize
design concepts and spatial relationships.

These computer-generated architectural virtual models provide the added dimension of realistic materials and landscaping.
Viewers can easily rotate and zoom in on any area or detail to emphasize a specific aspect of the design at an eye-friendly scale.

I import my CAD floor plans to a three-dimensional modeling program such as Google SketchUp and then build upon it in three dimensions
with as much detail as I wish for the specific project.

Most residential study models may include interior spaces and, with the use of preset "scenes," can show the client how any area of the project looks from eye level.
Some programs can be programed to provide a walk-thru of the project.

Creating virtual models using Google SketchUp has the added advantage of being able to place the model onto its actual location using Google Earth.
Once the building has been constructed and exists, Google Earth used to accept the model and place it within Google Earth on the 3D building layer
where it could be viewed by all users who have that layer turned on. Since they sold SketchUp, they do not acccept new models.
