Getting Started with Davis3D
At Davis3D, we are happy to discuss any potential projects you would like us to create; but before any Architectural Visualization project begins, a specific set of data is required.
3D Project Files
If 3D files have already been created in an application such as AutoCAD, we will need you to export a DWG file for us. Before exporting, the contents of the file should be moved to the origin (x=0, y=0, z=0) in order to keep the accuracy of 3D Geometry. The DWG file should also include materials if available.
Regardless of whether 3D files have been designed, all 2D floor plans and material information will be required, as 3D files sometimes exclude details listed in the 2D plans.
A detailed scope will need to be negotiated before commencement. This must include, but not be limited to: – Picture & or Video examples of the quality you desire. – A list of interactive components in the project (light switches, movable furniture, etc) – If certain materials need to be very specific, we will need some example pictures. – We need detailed specifications of the target Hardware – File Size Limitations (if any)
