To sell your property, you need to get the layout right. Once you’ve done this, you need to tell people, or better still, SHOW people how well your property is laid out. You can do this using 3d floor plans. If you can’t show people around your property, maybe it’s not built yet, or maybe potential punchers are view your details online; this is no problem, they can view your entire layout by using 3d floor plans.
3d floor plans can come in various levels of detail, and therefore cost. There are companies which allow the automatic generation of 3d floor plans, such as Metropix. These services may be fairly inexpensive but they carry a subscription charge and the results are very generic. Due to the fact, that they are automated, they use a lot of generic colours and furniture. This has a disadvantage because you will always end up compromising somewhere with the appearance of your 3d floor plans.
Blue Cube Studios draw every single 3d floor plan from scratch, by hand (or mouse!). They have developed 2 different types of 3d floor plan to help keep things simple. They really just consist of two different levels of detail, and how detailed you get with the furniture and fittings. This is done because in some case the furniture, fittings and colours is integral to the feel and design of your property. In other cases, you want people to concentrate on the actual layout so the furniture and fittings don’t need to be as detailed or distracting.
The two levels of 3d floor plans are detailed below:-
Standard:- (£150 per floor)
These floor plans are produced with realistic structure, layout and finishes specification. Furniture & fittings are shown as fairly unobtrusive and non-distracting. They are purely to give an impression of scale and size to the 3d floor plans.
Premium:- (£450 per floor)
These floor plans are produced with realistic structure, layout and finishes specification. In addition, they also show realistic furniture & fittings. These will match your interior spec as closely as possible, down to the colour of the curtains, cushions, furniture and any interior design scheme your have selected. These have been developed more for those situations where you’re showcasing a particular plot or design scheme and you have had a lot of thought already put into your interior design – you naturally therefore need this reflected in any 3d floor plans.
3d floor plans make great content for interactive sales and marketing media; for example, they can also be used as menu selection screens, so as you look at the 3d floor plan, you can actually select each room and be taken to an internal cgi or a 3d walkthrough of that room.
3D Floor Plans – What’s it all about ?
Instead of using 2D black and white floor plans for property marketing material, Blue Cube Studios can show your floor plans in 3D, with full colour and furniture shown. 3d floor plans show the entire floor layout of a building, with the ceiling taken off or cut away. Furniture is usually shown, as this gives the 3D floor plans more context.
Apart from being a lot more interesting to look at, 3d floor plans give an immediate appreciation of the space within a building, and how each room or space relates to one another. When potential purchasers look at 3d floor plans, they can easily see and understand the layout of the property and they can see what they’re buying into.
Blue Cube Studios have developed a unique style and working practices to produce 3d floor plans efficiently and to a very high standard. Furniture styles and colours are carefully selected, which show the proposed layout of a property without making it look cluttered or too confusing as other 3d floor plans do.
3D floor plans are created by using the 2D CAD drawings, normally supplied by the architect, and creating a 3D model of the walls and floor. Doors and windows are then cut into these walls, inserting them at the correct heights and matching the style of the windows to the elevation drawings. Kitchens and bathrooms can be shown by using the 2D floor plans supplied as a guide, which generally show the layout, and then Blue Cube can create the fittings and fixtures as appropriate, matching the style to what has been specified by the developer. If no specification exists, then we can show generic fittings. The last thing to do is add the furniture. This is done very carefully and sparingly. The idea is to have as much furniture as needed to show the space and give the floor plans a feeling of scale, but not too much furniture that the 3D floor plans feel full and cluttered. Blue Cube Studios have got this down to a fine art and can show your property in its best light.
Blue Cube Studios have also created Interactive 3D Floor Plans for various clients using QTVR or Java Script for Websites. These allow the potential property buyers to rotate or zoom in to the 3D Floor Plans, helping them to view areas which can sometimes be obscured in oblique views. Adding interactivity to these static 3D Floor Plans helps to generate more interest with potential buyers when viewing prospective properties by making their user experience more enjoyable. Hotspots can also be added to the interactive 3d floor plans which allow users to click on certain areas to obtain more detailed specifications, view CGI’s or even play animations.
