The Top 10 Reasons we use 3D Renderings in Furniture Design

Updated: Aug 27, 2020

The furniture industry has gained great benefit from the 3D rendering, photo-realistic process. Producing virtual, high quality images digitally provide clear visualization of abstract concepts, unlimited means of customization, and efficient revision of particular elements of a model.  The flexibility of this technology accelerates the approval process while enhancing visual communication with precise and accurate renderings.

We asked our design team to put together a list of the top 10 reasons we use 3D renderings and how it helps the design and manufacturing process.

1. Helps to better visualize designs

We create the 3D rendering based on the design provided. This shows the designer exactly how the piece will look after production and takes out the surprises.

2. 3D renderings show specific details that might not be clear in a 2D drawing

With pieces that require some complex installation or hanging- we create a 3D rendering to show how to install correctly, to show any hardware or brackets that would be lost on a CAD.

3. Helps convey any important construction changes that might need to be made

Sometimes we receive a design for a desk or table and we have to add structural changes for the safety of the hotel guest. The 3D rendering helps communicate those changes to the designer for approvals.
