The newly developed technologies of 3D modeling are making quite an entry, leaving a great impression on markets all over the globe. Once the tools that use modeling and 3D animation have gotten more popular among architects and real estate developers, the extent to which the usage o 3D models and virtual reality is impressive. It is now used in a new section of public services development. The city’s infrastructure planning and development is using 3D rendered models, in order to become more cost and time effective.
Sharing concepts and showing the public the alternatives has never been easier! City officials find it more convenient to get all team members on the same page and make more informed and faster decisions. The expectations are being synchronized and communication is improved. 3D infrastructure modeling is surely setting a new milestone in the development of public services.
By using rendered illustrations of the models, the designer, the developer and, more importantly, the public can now, have a clear vision of the final result. The project can therefore be analyzed in terms of efficiency and costs but also of compatibility with the surroundings and other existing projects.
In order to determine the optimal use of land, water, materials, and energy, the city officials are consulting the rendered images, having a clear visualization of what the final result will look like. This final image is easy to share and be subjected to a collective debate, in order to reach a conclusion and make a decision.
Here are just a few benefits of infrastructure 3D modeling:
- Better presentation of the project – involving materials that require a digital presentation will uplift the general look of the presentation materials.
- Better consideration of municipal environments – paying a close attention to creating cities that offer their inhabitants the best possible environment is a challenging task. This way, residents and city officials have a common ground to start discussing from. The interactivity of 3D modeling offers the opportunity to change and adapt such projects, in order to upgrade them in this respect.
- Lowers the chances of costly errors – the design of a 3D model can be changed an infinite number of times, before the project gets the general approval and the construction phase starts.
- Helps improve the existing infrastructure – 3D modeling can be used for determining the ecological impact of the projects that already exist. It can measure the water consumption’s impact on aquatic ecology, or possible air emission problems that can affect the quality of the environment. It, therefore shows the impact on the economic and social aspect of a city’s life.
