South Park in 3D

Here’s my South Park project modeled in 3Ds-Max with V-Ray. Refreshingly modern and comfortably traditional all at the same time. Exploded views of the upstairs and downstairs floor plans coming soon!

    Wow, the 3D model looks much better than the drawings.

    Hey, you wouldn’t deny your loyal followers a visit, would you? 🙂

    No way tj, from what I remember you live up North a little bit but this summer when we get it all framed up let me know if you are planning to be in town and I’ll make a special trip for you. The 3D floor plans are coming next. It’s kind of hard to really visualize the space from the CAD drawings.

    Very nice. What are the specs?

    What rendering software did you use and did you end up hiring them on Odesk?

    ‎@Curtis, that’s 3D max with VRAY like you suggested!

    Tom, Its going to look awesome! We are starting on Panorama next week. Excited to get that one going.

    That was fast Bill. I’m battling with plan changes. New construction so new for me and whole new game with the City.

    Nice rendering. Are you putting up specs instead of rehabbing now?

    ‎@Danny Day my first shot at new construction. We are building this house for ourselves! Good luck with your new project too!

    How much time did it take them to pull off cad to 3d max?
    Also if you want it to look super killer and real take high def shots of the site at different angles which they insert and it makes it look totally real.

    @Curtis It only took a day to expand all the CAD lines into the rough 3D Max VRAY model Curtis. There’s some YouTube videos that show how its done. Thanks to you I know how to do this now! The inside is being modeled right now too!

    Very nice design!

    The software does a fantastic job. This must be the program used on HGTV’s property brothers.

    I see the app is made by AutoDesk. Does 3D Max require a high degree of AutoCAD skills? If so, I’m out of the picture.

    @Mark, I couldn’t tell you buddy, all I know is my guy imported my CAD file and used it as a starting point for the model. My model isn’t even as high as the quality can get evidently. We are almost done with the inside of the house, wait until you see the images, really amazing and for me I love the ability to see how the house will feel without looking at flat architectural drawings. Thanks for taking the time to comment!

    Beautiful home! What are the costs for this CAD software? Is it for the layman/DIYer?

    @Tim Google 3Ds-Max

    You can get a free trial of 3Ds-Max but to get photo realistic renderings use it in conjunction with Vray. Not for layman though.

    It is a real pleasure to see such a good 3D work. Compliments to an expert in architectural visualization. For the people who asked about the software, it doesn’t do the job, the designer does it. Great job!
