3D Rendering - Virtual Design Improves Productivity


3D rendering, also known as virtual designing helps shorten design cycles and get products to market much more quickly by allowing designers to create and visualize in 3D.   It’s important to understand just what we’re talking about when we talk about visualizing in 3D.  The 3D rendered designs that are created in today’s 3D CAD packages provide more than just an illusion of depth through special graphics.  3D Rendering is the process of producing an image based on three-dimensional data stored within a computer.  This data includes precise measurements, as well as specific directions regarding how pieces of the product fit together and function.  In this regard, then,  a virtual  image of the product can be viewed from all angles and moving parts can be digitally manipulated to prove measurements, tolerances and function, all prior to ever creating a manufactured prototype.  This type of 3D manipulation allows design flaws to be noted and corrected early in the design process, helping to speed time to market.
