Hi Friends,

 

 

I am new to the 3D rendering field, I would like your help in:

 

 

I am just searching for some integrated 3D rendering software which would be beneficial for architects, interior designers, mechanical engineers, designers.

From your experience, which renderer will be beneficial for the following categories:

 

 

Architects:

 

 

Interior Designers:

 

 

Mechanical Engineers:

 

 

Or is there any integrated 3d rendering product that can be used for all the above professional needs?

 

 

Can you also give the reasons for your choices please? And any information on their pricing structure would also be really grateful.

 

 

Any help would be much appreciated.

Hi Everyone,

 

 

I was just playing with the 3D rendering software information on net and was quite impressed with the field and would like more information about the following doubts:

 

 

Which is the most commonly used integrated 3D rendering software by the professionals like Architects, Engineers and Designers?

 

 

And the most widely accepted and praised standalone 3D software?

Any information in this regard will be very helpful, and would be much appreciated.

The type of work you do will determine what 3D modeling software will best suit your needs. There are dozens of modeling programs and rendering engines. You will have to be more specific with your question.

 

Engineers might use Solidworks or Inventor.

Architects might use Revit or Autocad Architecture.

Designers might use any number of different programs depending on what they're designing.

 

The type of rendering software is determined by the modeling program you're using. Not all rendering software can be used with all modeling programs.

 

There is no one program that stands above the rest, but again, you will have to tell us what specific industry you're interested in. That will be the determining factor as far as which program to use.

I've merged your two threads.

Please don't cross post. This only causes confusion and makes it difficult to follow your progress.

Architects would use AutoCAD Architecture, or Revit Architecture. Engineers in the mechanical & electrical field would use Revit MEP but some use AutoCAD MEP. Engineers in the structural field would use Revit Structure but a steel detailer would use one of the few elite structural detailing software packages available. For eye candy and awesome visuals, 3DS Max would be considered the best. All of these are Autodesk products. It really depends on your specific field of study or work.

 

Like Cad64 stated, you have to be more specific with your question and know exactly what field you are in or will be going to.

No real answer as for what rendering engine works best. As CAD64 and Styk said each discipline has certain tool-sets that are suited for that line of work. AutoDesk uses the Mental-Ray engine in 3D Max and AutoCAD based products. Infact it is used in these applications.. Autodesk Maya, 3D Studio Max, AutoCAD, Cinema 4D and Revit, Softimage|XSI, Side Effects Software's Houdini, SolidWorks and Dassault Système's CATIA.. link . Another good engine is Vray.Both of these are integrated into the main application. There are also stand-alone engines that can be link to applications. There are even some free engines that can produce excellent results.

I personally feel that a tool set is an extension of the talent. They have to work together IMHO.

You should browse through the CADTutor "Showcase" section and look through the results, most list the different applications they used to achieve the results shown.
