3D Exterior Visualization is perhaps one of the most commonly used 3D visuals in the architectural and building industry. Most people have seen images of villas, homes, and apartment buildings which are soon to be constructed. These images look realistic and almost as though they were photos of an already completed project. However, the fact is that they only exist as a concept in 3D. It is intended to give prospective buyers and clients a detailed look at what the architect has planned for them.
EXTERIOR 3D VISUALIZATION
Exterior 3D is a go-to tool for most professionals in the real estate industry whether they are renovating a home or building one. The goal of the 3D visualizer is the ensure that the result is as realistic as possible which is done by adding a high amount of detail to the final render. However, the choice of the extent of realism mainly depends on what clients require.

Villa and House 3D Exterior Visualization
When architects design a home or a villa, it is often done using CAD software like AutoCAD. While people with a technical background can make sense of CAD design, it can be hard for others. People like your clients may not be able to make a decision based merely on a sketch or technical design. That’s where using a 3D house design exterior comes in.
A 3D model exterior as the term suggests is a computer-generated, photorealistic image of how the villa, for instance, will look when completed. However, unlike a photo, it can be rotated and examined in a 3D space. So, clients can check out the design, and ask for changes if required. They can also ask the architect to change the elevation or perhaps ask them to remove certain features like the garage or even expand the yard. All of this is made possible owing to the fact that removing and adding features to a 3D design is way cheaper, quicker and easier.
Elevation 3D Rendering
The elevation is a critical part of building any structure including a home or villa. While the elevation is often laid out in the CAD design, it is hard for regular people to know if it is the right height. That’s another area where 3D exterior visualization can come in handy. By incorporating the elevation into the 3D design, prospective clients and buyers can see how the home will look at a certain height. The depth of elements is shown naturally, precisely as they would appear in real life. Additionally, the usage of realistic textures and shadows further adds realism to the design. Also, if required the height can be adjusted before finalizing the design.
Exterior 3D design takes the hassle out of figuring out the right height and inclination for the structure. Not only is it good for showing to clients but can also help architects and builders identify potential weaknesses before the design is implemented. If anything, identifying issues before construction starts can save thousands of dollars and in some cases millions. That’s why 3D visualization for a home’s exterior is a huge part of the industry.
Types of Exterior Rendering
A big part of exterior rendering is the size, environment, and background of the project. Most people may not know this, but the exterior of the building is just as important as the interior. That said the exterior could be made to look better and more appealing with various environmental elements. Obviously, the elements mean that more work needs to be done and the artist has to be more skilled. That said we categorize 3D model exterior into two types:
- A Barebones Building or structure: Now a Ghost Building as the term suggests is a low-poly mockup of the project. It is based on the building’s plans often sent to us in CAD. These are the simplest to create and provide a glimpse into what the architect has in mind for a home or villa. The good thing about it is that since nothing is surrounding the building, there aren’t any distractions. However, these types of designs are generally used by architects to proof their conceptual design. Once all the issues have been ironed out, they then go for a more photorealistic render with high-resolution pictures for their portfolio.
- Photorealistic Rendering: It is the most lifelike 3D Exterior Visualization with the capability to mesmerize people who see it. Artists like us will create a realistic landscape within which the structure exists. Take for instance a villa which is surrounded by trees, a shed, car porch, etc. It is often a highly complex task to add multiple objects requiring extra texturing and modeling work. But the result is mesmerizing. That’s why architects and those in the real estate industry prefer a realistic surrounding. Besides people prefer and have been shown to buy homes that were rendered with photorealism.
How Does Our 3D Exterior Visualization Process Work?
We work with dozens of architects, realtors, and clients from across different industries. Generally, we only require that clients provide us with the drawings or blueprints of the project in either CAD or PDF format. We can also fine tune, enhance and change existing 3D models if required.
We initially start by providing you a preliminary model which you can review. The model is mainly sent so that our clients can request changes and modifications. Once those are made, and they are satisfied we then apply the required materials to the render. After which we will provide you with the final deliverable. The time and cost involved with a 3D exterior visualization project vary depending on complexity. More complex, photorealistic modeling takes more time and is hence priced accordingly.
Why Choose us to Create a 3D Model Exterior?
We have been creating exterior renders and designs for professional builders and architects for many years. Our team consists of the most professional artists in the industry that money can buy. Not only are they experts at creating 3D models and renders but are more than familiar with architectural design and presentation. Regardless of the complexity of the design, we ensure that the exterior is an accurate representation in every possible way. Plus, we make sure that the model can be shown in various views which further makes it easier for people to see the best features of the structure.
Our experience and the fact that we offer photorealistic exterior renders ensures that not only will what we work on impress your clients but also make your job of marketing a design or service easier. We take every step possible to ensure that the final product is an accurate representation of the CAD design. Not only that but we’ll add realistic external elements which will further accentuate the design making it easier for your clients to make an educated decision. Most of all we work for you, and in your best interest, which is why all designs are based on your specifications and any modifications you request.
