Xuver is the world’s first in-browser visualization platform that will immerse your clients in your SketchUp designs. But did you know that you can also use Xuver as an interactive portfolio for all your SketchUp designs? Let your clients immerse in your designs and show your SketchUp portfolio in a truly original way!
The importance of having an interactive SketchUp portfolio
How do you normally show your portfolio to your clients? Normally, you would have a series of artist’s impressions on your website that will show your designs to your clients. But what if you could actually immerse potential clients into your previous work? Add a layer of interactivity to your designs by letting everyone walk around inside with their own 3D figure, the avatar.
But in addition to that, you can also use Xuver to make visitors to your website experience space and dimensions of your design by walking inside of it with a 3D figure, the avatar. This will help them imagine your work as if they are viewing the buildings in real life. The interactive experience will leave a lasting, professional impression on your new clients.
What’s the difference between Xuver and a regular SketchUp portfolio?
For each architect, showing your portfolio on your website is important, as potential new clients will often look at your previous work before they make a decision on a professional who can design their dream house. So in order to give a clear view of your designing capabilities, you will have to make sure that your examples engage your client and give everyone a clear image of your designing skills and style.
Meet your future client inside your interactive SketchUp portfolio
By adding the option to view your designs in Xuver on your SketchUp portfolio page on your website, you will add interactivity to your portfolio. In a time where clients become more tech-savvy and assertive, this offers great opportunities to show your capabilities as a modern and online architect.
Besides having visitors to your website explore your SketchUp portfolio on their own you can also agree upon a time to meet up with them inside the design, and talk them through all the ins and outs by using the built-in voice module.
Use the laser pointer to grab their attention and point at details that are relevant to their particular requirements. A particular style of stairs? Or classical pillars in front of the building? Show and explain to them inside Xuver how you did it for previous clients.
A great addition to your SketchUp portfolio
Using both Xuver and artist’s impressions on your portfolio page will serve all potential clients’ needs. Besides seeing an image or video of previous designs, they can also choose to actually walk inside it, which will give them a very complete view of your SketchUp capabilities: essentially a ‘best of both worlds’.
Another benefit of giving visitors the option to choose their medium to view your portfolio is that it will leave a lasting impression that will make your SketchUp portfolio stand out from the competition.
