At Pinnacle Metal Products, it’s our top priority to fabricate, deliver, and install quality at every step. That’s why we rely on 3D modeling to help ensure our prefabricated metal products exceed client expectations. Here are our insights into 3D modeling, and how its versatility and advantages play a role in the Pinnacle Metal Products design process.
What is 3D modeling?
Instead of using pencils and paper to draft a two-dimensional image, 3D modeling is the combination of mathematics, geometry, and graphic design through specialized software, to produce a three-dimensional computer-generated image. There are many different types of 3D modeling used in various different industries. 3D modeling is used in everything from entertainment and engineering, to medicine and marketing, with architecture and construction being no exception. With this incredible technology, users create models of their projects in three-dimensional space to surprising levels of real-world accuracy before the building process even begins.
One advantage of 3D modeling is the ease of collaboration. A computer-generated model is easily shared with designers, architects, and clients, regardless of their location. Through 3D modeling, many different people can coordinate on one, or multiple different designs, from anywhere in the world. Each designer to make alterations to the model without fear of permanently disrupting the design, thanks to the flexible nature of computer files. In 3D modeling, many different components of the model can be constructed at once, where even a digital 2D drawing, would cost more time and less efficiency to achieve similar results.
By using 3D modeling communication between designers is easy, and as the project progresses the model can be shared with production teams and clients. A two-dimensional image is limited by a single perspective. Therefore, the designer’s vision is often misinterpreted by others’ visualization of the completed structure after viewing the image. Unfortunately, this type of separation often misconstrues the designer’s true intentions and can lead to confusion, and delays.
Where a two-dimensional model often requires a layman’s explanation, a 3D model can accurately represent how a structure will exist on the physical plain. This allows clients unfamiliar with the design process to grasp how the finished product will look, leading to less confusion while driving more constructive questions. At Pinnacle Metal Products, we clearly coordinate between our detailers, builders, and clients through every step of the production process by using 3D modeling.
Saving Money with 3D Modeling
The ease of 3D modeling not only makes it simple to coordinate on a model, but it makes it easier to identify potential design problems before they become financial problems. With the ability to view the model from any perspective at an instant, designers take in every detail. To further increase their understanding, simulations test how the model handles real-world stress. With this information, architects prepare for every situation, reduce production hiccups, and prevent otherwise timely and costly mid-production changes. By using 3D modeling in our diverse Pinnacle Metal Products, we spot design flaws and make adjustments before any materials are fabricated. Therefore, reducing the monetary and time costs, while improving the production and installation efficiency.
3D modeling provides a designer with a complete understanding of their model before construction begins. Further blurring the lines between the physical and virtual, 3D modeling works with amination and virtual reality software. Through these tools, designers and clients can walk through a model and gain a feel for it before construction starts. With simulated realistic lighting and accurately scaled measurements, clients can make decorative choices early in production. 3D modeling’s ability to let clients explore their options and environment makes it a necessity in the design of Pinnacle Metal Products.
Our design process delivers quality and elegance while minimizing client costs. By quoting the basic design specified and adding valuable engineering ideas, we ensure your project receives the highest quality service. Once the custom design is finalized, our in-house detailers use 3D modeling software to put together everything needed for the construction and installation of your prefabricated steel stairs. This saves project time and money while giving our clients and employees an equal understanding of the finalized product. Our Pinnacle Metal Products are only possible through the versatility and collaboration offered by 3D modeling.
