3D House Design
Old-fashioned paper plans are useful to the construction team creating your house. However, there’s a more modern alternative available — a 3D house design. Thanks to modern technologies, Arcline can show you what your future house will look like and work with you to create the perfect home for your family.
There are three 3D house design tools we use to give you the most accurate representation of your dream project.
Computer-aided design, or CAD design, is a technique taking advantage of powerful pieces of software such as AutoCAD, ArchiCAD & Revit to create 2D and 3D plans. However, it’s more than a visual representation; AutoCAD house plans also give information on the materials used and allow the planner to add more details.
These detailed plans also help guide the communication between the architect and the manufacturer, since an AutoCAD building design file contains all the information needed to optimise the fabrication process and lower costs.
3D VR Walkthroughs
What if you could see your house and visit it before the foundations are laid? It’s now possible thanks to 3D virtual home walkthroughs, which lets you truly visualise the space and decide if you’re giving the green light for the project.
These can also be used if you wish to visit a house for sale. A virtual walkthrough eliminates the need to go there in person with an appointment, and it’s a time-saver, offering the possibility to see several properties in a single day with a pair of VR goggles or from your laptop.
Many architectural firms don’t offer architectural VR walkthroughs. Lucky for you, Arcline Architecture does offer this service to ensure you’ll love your house before the building starts.
During the CAD design phase, you can request a floor plan to 3D model representation. This architectural 3D model is at the 1:75 scale and costs around $1,500+GST.
You can lift the model’s roof to explore the interior and use a lamp to simulate the sunlight to get a feel of what it will be like living inside your house at any hour of the day. It’s not mandatory, but it’s a neat visualisation tool that lets you see the internal spacing of your house and helps you project yourself in the house. Also, what’s cooler than having a miniature version of your house to play with?
