Architectural renderings, visualizations and animations use 3d models to represent residential and commercial interiors and exteriors for marketing and design analysis purposes.

Architectural visualizations enable clients and target audiences to see the finished building and/or interiors before the approval and construction of a residential or commercial building.

Architectural renderings, visualizations and animations play major role in the design and the sale of real estate. Design changes and related decisions are facilitated by using architecture 3d models, which are used to create architectural renderings and visualizations that can be shown to the clients before the building or property.

3D Modeling of architectural renderings requires specific expertise not only in rendering but in architectural design as well.  The architectural 3D models used to create the renders must be modeled with the right proportion, scale, and level of detail. Also real life textures, materials, color and finishes must be used to achieve the photo realistic look of high quality 3D architecture renderings.

Architectural renderings are specific to their particular use and there are many types including: still renderings, 3d photo-realistic renderings, virtual tours, panoramic renderings, walk-through animations, fly-by animations, 3D floor plans, light and shadow study renderings, renovation renderings, etc. Each type of architectural rendering will first start as a group of 3d models arranged together to create the architectural scene.

Architectural renderings are still renders of  these scenes and the landscape and they include the building or structure and surrounding environment such as the trees, grass, people, cars, etc.

Architectural renderings can be created from sketches or from CAD files. 3D models can also be inserted into an actual photograph of the lot or environment to create an architectural rendering with a photo environment.

Virtual tours are very popular in residential as well as commercial real estate sales. Virtual tours allow navigation throughout the entire 3D architectural scene. When going through a virtual tour  that was created using 3d models, one can go from room to room and explore every aspect before beginning construction.

3D floor plans are done in three dimension to provide a very accurate layout of the interiors of a home or building, as one can see the rooms for each level and the rooms are typically furnished.

Panoramic renderings are high end architectural visualizations and they are done to provide a wider view of the architectural scene.  They can be done on the interior as well as the exterior of the building. They are also done so that the client gets a 360 degree view of the architecture of a building.

Architectural animations are short architectural movies. To create the animation a series of still 3D rendered images are put together to form the movie.

3D Models are used in each of the 3d scenes  in the movie. An architectural animations can have fly-over camera views and walk-through views of the building.

Architectural animations are often created with the landscaping and surrounding environment to give the them are more realistic feel.

There are many types of stock architecture 3d models that are used in architectural renderings including scenes, interiors, exteriors, buildings, plants, furniture, etc.
