Traditionally, architects have used hand-drawn sketches, pen and ink drawings, and watercolour renderings to represent their design with the vision of an artist. Computer Generated Images are the newest medium to be utilised by Architectural Illustrators. Also known as photo-real renderings, complex 3d modeling and rendering software is used to create photo-realistic images. These are normally used for presentation, marketing and design analysis purposes. Computer generated 3D models are built to scale from plans, whether hand drawn, or created in CAD software such as AutoCAD, and then textures, materials and lighting are added.

These techniques can be used to give a 'Before and After' view.
First exposed to a wide (UK) audience through the popular Channel 4 program 'Grand Designs', 'flythrough' animations can give you an excellent impression of the layout and design of your project whether big or small, and can be tailored to accommodate your budget.
