You’ve finally come around to choosing a 3D rendering service and you’re ready to get started with your project. What now though?
With the demand for computer generated images for use in architecture or eCommerce increasing, we’ve seen several new clients that have never worked with a 3D modeling or design firm before. These people generally aren’t completely sure how to prepare for our initial consultation with them either. Though many of the specifics depend on each project, such as the type of rendering, every project we take on still has many of the same basic core needs.
We’ve taken the time to put together a list of some of the information that we think potential clients should know of before they reach out to us, or any other 3D rendering company:
Give Us All of The Files and Information You Have
To start the project, we’ll need to know exactly what level of design drawings you have and what we’ll need to complete the project. Are we working with 2D drawings or 3D drawings? Do you have the specifications for the project or any photographs to work with? Remember, it’s better to have more information than not enough so be prepared to tell us what we’ll have to move forward with!
Tell Us Who We’ll Be Working With
On many of the major developmental projects we’ve worked on, we end up working with many different teams that are working together to create the final product including design firms, architects and marketing teams. Let us know who we’ll be working with and in what capacity they will be working on the project. This way we can figure out the best way to collaborate and get the job done right!
Think About What You Really Want
It’s important for us to know exactly what you’re looking for in terms of deliverables and what you’ll need from us to move onto the next phase of your project. Our process will be different depending on whether or not you an animation rendering or real-time models. The earlier we understand what our clients’ needs are, the better. Be prepared to tell us what you want the final product to look like and what you’ll use it for. In return, we’ll do our best to come up with a plan to deliver what you need.
Tell Us How You Feel About The Project
No matter who we are working with, whether it’s a developer of a new office building or a company with a new product that is set to hit the market, we want all of our clients to tell us what makes their project unique. Many of our clients tend to be passionate about what they are working on and we love to hear about what makes their project unique. Talking to us gives us a clear idea of how to proceed to create a final product that will accurately represent the vision you are hoping to see.
Share Your Timeline
Are you on a deadline? If so, what is it? We need to know what kind of schedule we are working with so we can clearly communicate projected work timelines. We’ve worked with clients who had four weeks to get something together, some who had several months to get something together and others who needed to get their work done as soon as possible. Let us know early what time frame we have to work with and we can come up with a work schedule that works for you and for us!
Share Your Budget
Many people don’t know what to expect when it comes to the financial aspect of a 3D rendering. Since every project is unique, the cost tends to vary among clients. Be honest with our budget early on in our conversation and we can work together to figure out how to proceed. The sooner we know the basic information about the project, the sooner we’ll be able to figure out if our team will be able to help you achieve your project goals.
