4 advantage architectural models making must use renderings

In the architectural model draft stage, the computer effect is popular, because of its characteristics and advantages. So, what are these characteristics and advantages? We will analyze it.

  1. Convenient and fast
    Computer rendering production time is short, convenient and fast. In the draft stage of the architectural model, the fastest renderings can be presented as soon as possible so that the design team knows the way to complete the model at the later stage. Of course, it is necessary to have a good artistic and aesthetic ability to produce a high quality and excellent renderings.
  2. low cost
    Material costs and low production costs. Computer rendering graphics as long as you have a computer, and install the relevant software on it, which may be considered a one-time relatively large investment.
  3. The effect of first-class performance
    The use of computer rendering can not only easily achieve multi-angle display space and level, but also has a different display, style, can show a photo-level realism effect. For example, in the display of some architectural models, you can very carefully view the details and improvements, can also be viewed from different angles and rendering.
  4. Easy to modify, easy to copy
    Rendering is mainly used to display design, more importantly, easy to communicate. Render the image similar to the effect after the complete, for dissatisfied places, can be modified in time. This can be done very quickly to achieve the purpose of improving the efficiency of the work.

We are in the proportion of the architectural model draft stage to 3d modeling way, so the performance of the renderings is based on the real building model after the completion of the look, of course, it can be virtual dismantling or even direct cnc processing.

How to avoid changing the design during making of the architectural model

Have you ever tried to make a architectural model during which designers often change the design? If so please continue 🙂

Scenario 1
You are drafting, coming to the new file, open the email found changed, your draft was half and had to be modified again.

Scenario 2
Otherwise, you have already processed the model parts and assembled, and then the new file has come, and when you view it, the design is changed.

Scenario 3
You made the physical model is completed, then the designer appeared, tell you that this part to change.

Scenario 4
Completely okay

It is foreseeable that scenario 1 may not be so serious you only need to modify the draft in the computer. In addition to the scenario 4, the other is greatly reduced money and time. This causes the model maker to create a habit:


If there are any questions, the design is not complete, do not try to draft, wait until the meeting with the design team to discuss and get the design concept or design.

In fact, the real solution is:

It is necessary to draw a 3D model to the architectural design team before making the model. This will avoid changing the model when model maker make the model. If their design changes, you only need to change the model inside the computer until they decide the design, Finally in the beginning of the production of physical building model.

How to delete dimensions and convert scale in the architectural drawing within 1 hour

Do you think the initial preparation drawings of architectural model making is boring?

Generally in the beginning to drafting architectural models must be handled before the thing is to convert the scale of the drawing file, remove unnecessary texts, dimensions, etc., in particular, repeat the operation of converting a large number of files such boring work to spend at least a few Hour. 

In some customer inquiries, we decided to launch this service for architectural model maker, we call this: Rapid preparation drawings for architectural model” simply called RDP, the purpose is to reduce the time to drafting the model in the early processing file.


We use the thousands files tested. The above chart showing user processing takes 8 hours. Our RDP service takes only an hour.

Rapid preparation drawing for architectural model (RDP)

All processed files include the following highlights:

✔ Convert building plans to any scale

✔ Delete unwanted text / mtext

✔ Delete unwanted dimensions

✔ Enter the user’s layer *

✔ Enter user layer group filter *

✔ Fast processing

✔ Reduces drawing prep time by 90% *

✔ Completely free service *

To use our Free service is very simple, you only need to:

Upon completion, our RDP free to serve you, to send architectural drawings to us in two ways:

  • A small number of files can be sent to our by email
  • A large number of files you can add to our wechat: dimkagroup, send a download link with your email address we process the file to complete and will send it back to you.

3 most important things of start drafting architectural model

Now generally began to making architectural models are indispensable to electronic files and most are using autocad, when the making architectural model is necessary to draft in these files, so when we get these files the most important thing is:

Conversion scale

Convert the drawing file to the scale required. Ex: 1: 100

Replace the dimension

When convert the scale dimension will become chaotic, the standard solution online many tutorials, here we take to delete it, the first fast, the second can make the file lightweight, and deleting a dimension does not affect the drafting model.

Create layer

Of course the layer is also very important, Now you can import your layer state or create a new layer.

In addition to the above methods, of course there are other ways for you. Now you can pick up your mouse and start drawing it.

First blog post of DIMKA SEA

​Hi, thank you for reading our blog.

This blog has just been set up, the blog mainly on the architectural model of the production, drafting, tips, computer graphics, technical information sharing and discussion.

It is very welcome to the professional architectural model manufacturers and the company and we share each other’s experience, technology. And even other categories of model enthusiasts can join.

I hope you can find useful information on our blog, we will try to share the latest information to everyone.

Thanks 🙂
