What Do You Think Of This Rendering?


Photorealistic renderings are nice, but I've been playing with this kind lately. How do y'all like it?

The plant/grass is to generic looking and to close: it over whelms the drawing causing the drawing to be to busy and everything clashes together.
As far as the actual style of line types it is just a preference thing, some people like it others don't, the detail line work seems fine but I think drawings look better when you take the time to actually render the drawing. Only time I use this type of drawing is to over lay another drawing on a slide show or combining renders on one drawing sheet to show variety.

That's just my opinion though, I am sure others will disagree.

Re: What Do You Think Of This Rendering?


I like it. It's nice to be able to present drawings (especially in the conceptual stages) in a little less "realistic" format.

That way the client is not so honed in on every minute detail until the final revisions are agreed upon.

These are from the new version of Chief Architect (v. X2...still in beta), but I like the option of the less "realistic" presentation.

Now I'm going to have to upgrade again. It's nice that they've provided that - it was pain on larger models to export to Sketchup to get that effect. It is nice during conceptual design phases to provide a line drawing like you've shown.

Re: What Do You Think Of This Rendering?


Yeah, I was doing the same thing...exporting to sketchup to make my drawings look...worse (or conceptual). It's kind of funny when you think about it, but is very helpful in the beginning design stages.

And a ceiling (this was last week before I got the X2 beta, and no sketchup conceptualizing...)

...and yes the beams were moved to line up with the spaces between the windows on the following revision...

What kind of "styles" does archicad allow you for presentation?

Thanks man, it's a neat program after you get to learn it, just like most of the cad programs...it almost makes me look like I can draw (and I can't, not free-hand anyway).
