3D modeling is the process of using software to render a three-dimensional object or shape. The created object is called a 3D model, and such 3D models are used in various industries: film production, television, video games, architecture, construction, scientific and medical industries, as well as in product design. The main process of modeling is connecting sets of points with lines and polygons to create wireframes.
The most popular 3D modeling software is 3dsMax, Blender, ZBrush, Maya, SketchUp and many others. In turn, they are divided into more advanced and complex ones and those that are better suited for beginners. The former, for example, include 3dsMax, and the latter – TinkerCAD or 3D Slash.
Why Choosing Correct 3D Modeling Firms is so Important?
3D models are an integral part of high-quality presentations, technical documentation, entertainment products, as well as the basis for creating a product prototype. Speaking about the areas of application of 3D modeling in more detail, the following can be distinguished:
- Production. It is impossible to imagine modern production without pre-production modeling of products. In order to start production, it is necessary to create a 3D model of the object. On its basis, using rapid prototyping technologies (3D printing, milling, molding of silicone molds, etc.), a realistic prototype or sample of a future product is created.
- Advertising. Three-dimensional graphics are indispensable for the presentation of the future product. After 3D visualization, the resulting model can be used to design packaging, website, presentation or to create outdoor advertising, POS materials and design of exhibition stands.
- Urban planning. With the help of three-dimensional graphics, the most realistic modeling of urban architecture and landscapes is achieved with minimal costs. Visualization of building architecture and landscape design allows investors and architects to feel the effect of being in the designed space. That allows you to objectively assess the merits of the project and eliminate the shortcomings.
- Video games. The first comprehensive 3D games appeared in the mid-90s of the last century. Now it is 3D games that are the top product of the entertainment market. In professional programs, experienced specialists manually draw three-dimensional landscapes, hero models, animate created 3D objects and characters.
- Cinema. The entire modern film industry is focused on 3D cinema. For such filming, special cameras are used that can shoot in 3D. In addition, individual objects and full-fledged landscapes are created using 3D graphics for the film industry.
- Architecture. The technology of 3D modeling in architecture has long proven itself from the best side. Today, the creation of a three-dimensional model of a building is an indispensable attribute of design. Based on the 3D model, you can create both a prototype repeating only the general outlines of the building and a detailed prefabricated model of the future structure.
- Interior design. As for interior design, with the help of 3D modeling technology, customers can see how their home or office space will look after repairs or redesigns, as well as think over a completely new design and evaluate it even before new furniture is purchased and repair work has been carried out.
- Animation. With the help of 3D graphics, you can create animated characters, make them move, and also, by designing complex animation scenes, create a full-fledged animated video.
Regardless of the purpose for which you need a 3D model, this 3D model should be of the highest possible quality. After all, it depends on this how the future production will take place, how the customers or players will react, or what the budgetary framework of the future project is. Therefore, when choosing 3D modeling companies, you must weigh the pros and cons. The expertise of the selected modelers determines the success of your modeling project.
How to Choose Most Reliable 3D Modeling Studio?
Choosing any contractor is a scrupulous study of the 3D modeling companies that interest you and their profiles on various resources. We are primarily interested in three key positions:
|Range of Services||The range of services available will help you see if your chosen 3D modeling studio can help you. We remember that there are many types of 3D modeling, and it is unlikely that the studio covers all of them and creates architectural visualizations, models for games, and prototypes for industrial details. This requires too diverse specialists, and the desire to cover everything at once does not inspire confidence.|
|Portfolio||The next stage of testing the competence of a 3D modeling studio is the study of the portfolio. Each service presented in the company must be confirmed in the form of an example of the work performed. Even when most projects are under the NDA, there are always some that can be shown. As a last resort, studios purposefully create models for a specific type of service in order to demonstrate their skills.|
|Years on the Market||The number of years on the market in itself is not proof of anything, but it can be very revealing for a general understanding of the 3D modeling studio. If a company has been operating on the market for a long time, but it has a small number of works in its portfolio, there are no client reviews and profiles on independent sites, then most likely there is no point in contacting it – it does not care about its reputation or about building up its client base nor about a decent presentation of their services. Starting a partnership with a 3D modeling studio that has emerged relatively recently can also be risky. Most likely, modelers will try to impress you, but they may lack the experience and knowledge of the specifics of the industry you need.|
We offer you a list of specially selected 3D modeling companies of different specializations. They passed our verification according to the above 3 criteria and proved themselves to be worthy partners.
While selecting the following 3D modeling companies, we have focused on their websites and profiles on independent platforms such as GoodFirms, Clutch, DesignRush and others. We have researched the range of services and the portfolio confirming them, client reviews, the list of tools used, as well as the procedure for accepting an application if there is relevant information.
