Beginning of Project
All Architecture Projects start with technical drawings. These drawings include all dimensions and materials that will be used in project. But, these drawings don’t make a sense to customers. Today, all architecture companies present their projects by using renders of 3d model or maquettes, but both of them have some disanavtages.
Renders of 3d model reflects localized part of project and don’t give have any information about whole projects.
The production of real maquettes can take 1 to 6 months according to desired detail and size. Also, it is not possible to make any modification on the maquettes during the project.
When these disadvantages are considered, augmented reality shows itself as a powerful alternative. After the 3d modelling, whole project can be integrated into an augmented reality application and all details can be seen by the customer during the presentations. Integration of 3d models in to an augmented reality application takes maximum 1 month. Also, modifications and changes are possible during the whole project period.
Presentation of Project
During the marketing phase of architecture projects, augmented reality brings new features and makes your project presentations more impressive. When the augmented reality is used, people can walk, sun and cars can move and all lights in the building can be simulated in this virtual maquette. Also, you can carry your virtual maquette to anywhere such as fairs and shopping malls. You need to carry just your VR Headset and marker pad.
Another great advantage of virtual maquette is adjustable size feature. Virtual maquette size automatically changes according to your marker pad. It means, if you have 30cm x 30cm marker pad, base of your virtual maquette will be 30cm x 30cm. But if you have 2m x 2m marker pad, base of your virtual maquette will be 2m x 2m.
Some companies construct and decorate sample apartment flat with in their promotion offices for attracting their customer. But, generally projects include wide range of flat types. In such a case, it is very expensive and hart to construct and decorate all flat types. All flat types can be modelled and integrated into an virtual reality application and customers take a tour in desired flat type. During the virtual tour all details (furniture, sink, bath, heaters, used materials etc. ) can be presented to customer effectively.
Some companies use maquettes of floor plans in their promotion offices. But, generally architecture projects include wide range of floor plans and this requires more money and space in the promotion office. 3d modelled floor plans can be integrated into an augmented reality application, too. By this way, all floor plans can be presented on a single marker pad and all details (furniture, sink, bath, heaters, etc. ) can be presented to customer effectively. Also, modifications and changes are possible during the whole project period for floor plans.
