3D Modelling

Tailored to meet any project needs.

WHAT IS 3D MODELLING?

Definition.

3D modelling is the creation of a subject on a computer. It involves developing a mathematical representation of that subject in three dimensions using a wide range of 3D 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.

Depending on the project requirements, 3D models can contain many information, such as dimensions, material, weight, the centre of gravity, and many more. You could think of them as blank pieces of paper and the computer as a pen.

HOW CAN 3D MODELLING HELP YOU?

Advantages.

Almost all our designs have begun with 3D modelling. Even though most things you see on a computer are in 2D form, such as drawings, these are first created in 3D. This is because you can’t see issues that may arise in 2D form so quickly. 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.

3D Animations.

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.

3D Renders.

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.

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.

HOW ARE 3D MODELS CREATED?

Process.

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.

01.

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.

02.

Digital Sculpting

You can think of this like clay modelling on the computer. It is mostly used for very organic shapes.

03.

Curve Modelling

With this type of modelling surfaces are defined by curves. These are influenced by control points.

HOW MUCH DOES A 3D MODEL COST?

Costing.

The cost of modelling can vary widely depending on several factors, including the project’s complexity, the software and tools used, the skill level of the 3D modeller, and the purpose of the modelling. Here are some factors to consider when determining the cost of a 3D model:

To get an accurate estimate for your specific 3D modelling project, you can contact XO3D. Please provide detailed information about your project, including the scope, complexity, timeline, and any specific requirements. This will help us provide you with a more accurate cost estimate. Remember that prices vary widely, so it’s a good idea to shop around and compare quotes before deciding.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

FAQ.

What is 3D modelling?

Using specialised software, 3D modelling creates a three-dimensional representation of an object or environment. It involves manipulating points, lines, and polygons to create a realistic or abstract representation of an object or scene.

There are many different types of software used for 3D modelling, including Autodesk Maya, Blender, Cinema 4D, ZBrush, and more.

The benefits of 3D modelling include creating realistic representations of objects and environments quickly and easily, making changes to the model without having to start from scratch, and creating models that can be used in various applications such as animation, gaming, virtual reality, and more.

The amount of time it takes to learn 3D modelling depends on the individual’s experience level and the complexity of the project they are working on. Generally speaking, it can take anywhere from a few weeks to several months to become proficient in 3D modelling depending on how much time you dedicate to learn.

The cost of 3D modelling software varies widely. Some software options are free, while others can range from hundreds to thousands of dollars. Some may offer subscription-based pricing models as well.

The time required to create a 3D model depends on its complexity and the skill level of the modeler. Simple models can be created in a matter of hours, while complex projects may take weeks or even months.

Common 3D file formats include .obj, .fbx, .stl, .dae, and .3ds. The choice of format often depends on the intended use of the 3D model and the software or hardware it will be imported into.

Yes, 3D models can be 3D printed. You need to export the model in a suitable format (such as .stl) and use 3D printing software and hardware to create physical objects from the digital 3D models.
