Today, engineers have access to a wide range of photo realistic rendering products. It wasn’t so long ago that concept designs had to be physically engineered before being photographed in a studio. Today, the entire project can be realized in virtual form, using 3D max rendering and engineering animation software.
3D rendering uses complex computer algorithms to create realistic static or moving images. Widely used in the TV, film and gaming industries it is also a highly popular tool in mechanical engineering, both as a CAD drafting aid and for promotional purposes. While no 3D photorealistic animation can ever replace the experience of driving a new concept car, it gives a good idea of what it will look like in your garage. To aid realism, modern software is packed with special effects, such as MB (motion blur), which simulates the way our eyes see fast-moving or vibrating objects.
Photorealistic rendering can be used in many ways. During the early stages of product design, it helps engineers gain an accurate understanding of how the finished product will work and look, and gives a clear picture of potential problems in usage, such as impeded visibility or space limitations. 3D rendering also enables packaging and advertising teams to prepare products in parallel with the design being produced, rather than having to wait until there is a physical prototype. With large and complex system designs, the savings in terms of cost and time to market can be enormous.
We at Enventure Technologies offer a full range of CAD, CAM and CAE services which cover all stages of product design. We are experts in the fields of photo realistic rendering, 3D modeling and engineering animation.
