As an architect, the way you show your 3D models to your clients matters a lot. Over the last years, 3D visualization has become increasingly important and that’s a great thing. Because using 3D visualization techniques will make your life much easier for architects. Let’s look at some of the benefits in this blog.
1. 3D visualization makes your clients understand what is happening
This is perhaps the single most important reason to use 3D visualization. Why do we, architects and 3D designers spend a lot of time (and money) to visualize a design as life-like as possible? Well, that’s because our clients are not as tech-savvy as we are, and showing them a design straight from the drawing board will confuse them. 3D visualization makes that process easier as you’ve undoubtedly experienced, but you can do more with it than you might think.
Make your 3D visualization interactive and easy to access
All too often, a 3D visualization is something you would show once your model is finished in order to get approval from your client. We get that, but what if you could involve the client throughout the process, and make changes as you go. Your client will feel involved, and there will be less discussions after you’ve handed in the final design.
With Xuver, it’s possible to create a walkthrough design that’s online available, so you only have to send it to your clients, who can then view and live discuss it together with you, or alone. Xuver works with SketchUp, ARCHICAD, Revit or IFC file formats: you simply convert the 3D drawings you already have and within moments, your design is accessible online.
2. 3D visualization that’s available online will save you time
That brings us to the second reason why 3D visualization will make your professional life easier. Simply put: it will save you time, especially when your 3D visualization can be accessed online and without any complicated downloads for your client. So instead of having to travel back and forth to show and explain your designs to clients. Simply send them a browser link, after which they can check out the design. No more need to travel, 24/7 online access to your 3D designs.
Xuver is such a platform: you and your clients meet inside the online 3D visualization and walk around by navigating the 3D figure, the avatar, around. Just as you would in a viewing in real time. A voice module enables live communication and using the avatar will bring all your clients up to speed in no-time. Xuver’s online 3D visualization has been designed in such a way that every client can use it in no-time. Quicken project approval time significantly by sending your clients your online 3D design and asking them for their opinion.
3. 3D visualization is what the modern client expects
Over the years, you could say that our lives have been developing more and more online. Your clients are no different: they too spend considerable hours a day on the internet, where everything is available within a few mouse clicks. So naturally, your clients expect you to be online too. By using Xuver, you will have an interactive platform that you can use for all your online 3D visualizations.
Another aspect that might sound familiar, is that the modern client wants to be involved. If you do this with online 3D visualization this doesn’t have to be time-consuming at all. Use Xuver to bring your clients up to speed during all phases of the 3D designing, ask them for their opinion on design matters or simply update them on your design progress. You will see that this matter of involvement will be appreciated and is of great value for your client retention.
