The most frequently asked questions about our services.
3D Visualization services
What is 3D visualization?
3D visualization is the representation of objects and scenes in three dimensions digitally. It allows for the creation of models of both real and imaginary elements in a style that best fits the intended communication: realistic, detailed, exploded parts or simplified.
What types of products can be represented with 3D visualization?
3D visualization is highly popular in architecture and interior design, often involving renders of homes, rooms, and furniture. It is also used to represent a wide variety of products such as electronic devices, vehicles, and machinery, to name a few. In addition to products, 3D renders and animations are an effective means to recreate usage environments and depict processes, such as assembly instructions.
What is a product render?
A product render is a digitally generated image that showcases how an object or scene would appear in a three-dimensional environment, including details like lighting, shadows, and textures. Product renders offer more versatility than photographs as they allow for custom scenes, easy detail modifications, and presentation in diverse contexts without physical limitations.
How does a render differ from a 3D animation or video?
A render is a static image, while a 3D animation or video consists of a sequence of moving images depicting the evolution and motion of objects or their components in a dynamic three-dimensional setting.
What are the advantages of a 3D product animation?
3D animation enables the demonstration of a product's operation and features from various angles, enhancing customer understanding and providing visual appeal. It also offers the flexibility to manipulate lighting, textures, and elements in the video without physical constraints. Diverse environments can be recreated, and modifications to elements, parts, or usage are much more straightforward. Compared to traditional videos, it also allows the presentation of non-existent products and exploding elements to reveal interiors or different components of a product.
What is needed to create a product rendering?
To create a render, a 3D model of the product is required. We can create it in-house at Despunte, or you can provide us with one in case you already have it. To create the 3D model, we will need photographs or drawings of the product, size or scale references, and all necessary instructions for an accurate representation. In addition to the 3D model, we'll ask you to define the render style (realistic level, colors, etc.) and at least one communication objective - what do you want to convey with the image we're creating?
What is needed for a 3D animation?
In addition to the elements mentioned for rendering, for a 3D animation we need to define the sequence of movements and transitions of the object. We will design this based on your animation style and communication objectives for the product video.
What is the outcome of 3D visualization projects?
3D visualization projects generate image files (such as JPEG or PNG) for renders and video files (such as MP4) for 3D animations, representing the products and scenes. If requested in advance, in addition to the visualization files, we can also create and provide you with the 3D models.
I already have a 3D model of my product. Can you use it to create the render or animation?
Certainly, we can use existing 3D models to create renders and animations as long as the formats are compatible with our tools. If you don't have the 3D model, we can create it from plans, drawings, or photographs of your product. If you want the complete 3D model as part of the project, please specify it in advanced, as it's not included by default in render and animation quotes.
What software do you use for 3D visualization projects?
We primarily utilize the open-source software Blender due to its versatility, power, and active community. This enables us to provide high-quality, customized results for each client within a collaborative and constantly evolving development environment.
What is the estimated delivery time for 3D visualization projects?
The delivery time varies based on project complexity, but typically, we can provide 3D product renderings and animations within a week after complete project definition.
How much does a render cost? How much does a 3D animation cost?
The cost of a 3D render or animation depends on project complexity: whether a 3D model is provided or not, the type of product and details, animation features, etc. Roughly, a render image typically ranges from €90 to €500. For 3D animations, the range is broader, starting at €150 and reaching over €3000 for complex, lengthy animations. We encourage you to contact us for a personalized quote.
Can the 3D videos and images be integrated into my presentation, website, or application?
Absolutely, you can seamlessly integrate the 3D videos and images we generate into your product and business presentations, website, or application to showcase your products in a striking and visually appealing manner. We'll provide you with the files for use in all your business and promotional activities. If you need assistance with integration, we also offer programming services; feel free to inquire.
Interactive Models, Electronics, and Programming:
What are interactive models, and how are they used?
Interactive models are physical three-dimensional representations that allow for tactile and visual exploration and manipulation of objects or spaces, providing a practical and immersive experience. Models can range from scaled representations of real objects to custom constructions illustrating products or processes – such as a factory production line.
Can I brand and customize the interactive models?
Absolutely, you can customize interactive models with your brand and content to reflect your company's identity and enable users to interact with the most relevant aspects of your model. For example, if you run a ceramics factory and the model depicts various machines of the production process, elements can be personalized to incorporate your corporate image. Through interaction, users can touch and gain information about specific aspects of the process.
What are the advantages of using interactive models?
Advantages of using interactive models include immersive visualization, the ability to present details from multiple angles, and enhanced communication of concepts through different senses such as sight, sound, and touch. They bridge the gap between traditional scale models and the digital world, particularly in a time when digital content consumption is on the rise and capturing attention for a meaningful duration is increasingly challenging.
What electronics services do you offer?
We offer electronics services that encompass sensor integration, robotics, and design and development of interactive applications. We also provide complementary design services such as custom casing and electronics housing design and fabrication for your electronic projects.
What programming languages do you typically work with?
