It’s all very well coming up with a good idea, but what will it actually look like in real life? This is where Monster Creative’s conceptual 3D Mockups come in. These are crucial stages in the design process that should be undertaken before any manufacturing starts, whether that be a building, a shop design or a product.
So, assuming the client meeting, brief and research has already taken place, what stages occur getting from 3D Mockups?
- 3D Mockups – Also thought of as sketches, mockups are basic ideas of what the final product will look like. They can also include annotations, and help the designer make quick revisions and find any obvious errors. Its likely that a few different 3D Mockups will be designed.
- Choose the best 3 – Final render can be quite a lengthy process depending on the product, so in terms of efficiency its good practice to choose only 3 to take on to the next stage.
- Add the details – This might be ideas for colours, materials, typography and additional extras such as a suitable background. A plain white background with no shading or lighting isn’t recommended as it immediately makes the final render look unrealistic.
- Final render – Often referred to as 3D visualisation, rendering means adding in shading, colour and materials onto a design to make it look life-like or photorealistic on a screen. Its important because it cuts down on time and money by letting you see any issues before production. It is quick and cheap to make changes until you are happy, and means everyone on the team can see it so all participants are on the same page.
