3D Modelling and Visualisation
3D Modelling and Visualisation:
3D modelling is the process of creating a three dimensional computer model which represents a three dimensional object.
3D models are made from points or vertices in 3D space connected by geometric data, such as lines and curves. This forms a wireframe representation which can be displayed with a solid surface through a process called ’rendering’. Textures and images can then be mapped to the surfaces of the 3D model to create ‘visualisations’.
3D modelling is now faster and more accurate than in previous surveys as we use our 3D laser scanning technology to gather the source data. The 3D models are then built directly on top of this source data; quality checking as we go.
We can create a variety of 3D modelling solutions from varied datasets and for differing purposes.
Example 3D modelling projects include:
- 3D surface Digital Terrain Model (DTM) of a proposed tip used in a visualisation to gain planning approval
- Right of Light 3D Model for proposed high rise office building
- 3D interior models of Dublin’s two largest cathedrals for acoustical analysis
- Railway structure modelling (signals & gantries), used in collision detection
- Planning application models
We can create deliverables for AutoCAD, 3D Studio, Rhino 3D, Microstation, Sketchup, Cyclone, Pointools and many more.
We can now also create 3D PDFs. This allows us to create and issue 3D models which can be viewed and manipulated without the need for specialist software. The only requirement is the installation of the widely used free Adobe Reader.
