WHAT IS 3D MODELLING?
3D modelling is the creation of a subject on a computer. It is the process of a developing a mathematical representation of that subject in three dimensions using 3D modelling software such as 3Ds Max and Solidworks. 3D modelling is the standard within computer-aided design. A 3D model can be used for almost anything and is essentially how most things begin life on the journey to production. 3D models can contain a large set of information such as dimensions, material, weight, center of gravity and many more depending on the project requirements. You could think of it as a blank piece of paper and the computer is the pen.

3D MODELLING WORKFLOW
1. Set up – First of all, clients provide the needed information, such as drawings, floor plans, sketches or any other information that you think would be helpful.
2. Quote – Secondly, we will check the information provided. Then we will double check what else we need and ask for it. Finally, we will give a competitive quote.
3. Perform – After you have accepted our quotes. We start work. Creating models and working on all the details of the task.
4. Contact – We constantly keep in contact to keep our clients up to date on the project.
5. Review – We complete a preliminary draft of the 3D model for your review. We allow for some adjustments according to your comments.
6. Accept – We get your approval.
7. Receive final files – You receive your final files that are required.
CREATE YOUR IDEAS IN 3D!
BENEFITS OF 3D MODELLING SERVICES
What is 3D modelling used for?
Almost all our designs are begun in 3D modelling. Even though most things that you see out of a computer are in 2D form such as drawings. These are first created in 3D. This is because you cant see issues that may arise in 2d form so easily. It is the most efficient way to get your subject to the next stage from idea to creation. Changes are never carried out in 2d but within the 3D software being used.
3D Animation – 3D models can be used to animate a product or building walk through. For example to show how the subject will look when it is made. This can help customers and investors see the project that they may be interested in. Videos talk a lot louder than words on a piece of paper.
3D Rendering – Use 3d models to create customisation renderings. Change materials, lighting and anything you can think of. These are also important to help sell a product/project. Click here to learn more.
3D Printing – 3D models can be used to have your ideas printed so you can see what your ideas look like in real life three dimensional form.
Prototyping – By using 3d modelling you can see your idea in form on computer. You can then iron out issues that you may not have been able to see from sketching or imagining the idea.
Technical Drawings – We can create manufacturing drawings from 3d models. These manufacturing drawings can be used to get your project to the next stage of production.
CNC Machinning – CNC Machines use 3d models as accuracy is a must.
BIM – The creation of new buildings starts with BIM. BIM is building information modelling. It contains all of the necessary information to get the projects to the next stage.
Plastic & Cast Molding Design – 3D models are essential to the process of mold design. We can easily iron out design issues before the next stage of production.
USE THE POWER OF IMAGINATION!
There are three main types of processes to represent a model. Depending on what needs to be modelled. Different types of software are used for each process.
Polygonal modelling – Points added into 3D space. These are called vertices and are connected by lines to form a mesh. This is the most popular modelling type today as they are flexible and can be easily textured for 3D rendering. However, polygon modelling is not exact as polygons are planar and can only approximate curved surfaces. Therefore these types of models are not usually used for production of a physical product.
Digital Sculpting – You can think of this like clay modelling on the computer. It is mostly used for very organic shapes.
Curve Modelling – With this type of modelling surfaces are defined by curves. These are influenced by control points.
Modelling techniques include:
Constructive solid geometry
WHY CHOOSE XO3D?
Reliability – We stick to deadlines. In fact, you can rely on us to keep you updated on all of the projects details and needs. Furthermore, if we need more information that will delay the project we will let you know well in advance.
Contact – Constant communication throughout the project is a must. So we take working together seriously. Therefore, communication is a must. Especially, to get a great outcome and a happy client.
Experience – We have experienced artists working on multiple different programs for rendering and modelling. Present us with whatever project and we specifically know what it takes to get the job done.
Quality – We pride ourselves in quality. If you are happy. We are happy. Through tireless work that achieves the perfect outcome necessary for the projects needs.
Creative – Our team has strong creative nature. With degrees ranging from architectural visualisation to design. Furthermore, if you don’t know what it is that you want we can help you bring some of your ideas to life.
