BIM Terms and Acronyms
A useful list of Building Information Model terms and acronyms is listed below. If you are doing architectural visualization you are sure to come across the need to understand and or even use BIM software, most notably Revit from Autodesk. At 3DAllusions Studio we offer price breaks for the use of Clients Revit models in assembling out scenes. In this way the Client and our studio capitalizes on the efforts already made as best we can to reduce redundancy and wasted efforts to provide the most economical solutions we possibly can.
What to Look for in a Rendering Studio
WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FOR - Having a good understanding of your scope of work and priorities is a good start in figuring out your needs and who best suits them. Generally speaking developers go for photo-realistic renderings as they work well for pre-sales and filling up tenant space before the project is completed. On the other end of the spectrum architects are more open to stylized renderings that take more artistic liberty and flare. In addition if you are going through design review or neighborhood hearings, loose traditional renderings work well as they don't make the audience feel like the design is already finished and their input is a waste of time. Select the artist/studio that demonstrates the qualities that you require and follow a few steps.

It's All Subjective:
I can say a rendering is bad and the average person off the street might say they see nothing wrong with it, so why should anyone care? This is the dilemma many potential clients face, bottom line is the all mighty dollar and if a cheap $500.00 rendering conveys the idea to the average person, why not just go with the cheapest artist/studio you can find? If it serves your purpose, it is hard to argue against it, and probably a waste of time to even try. So rather than argue the subjective, lets discuss the objective.
