DRAWINGS CREATED USING:
RENDERINGS CREATED IN AUTOCAD
ANIMATIONS CREATED IN MICROSTATION V8I
Rendering allows me to take a drawing to another level to show real life "visual expectations". Not just drawings. Visualization of Materials and Lighting can "clarify undersatnding". Examination under various lighting circumstances can be useful.
Photorealistic is the best. Although I have been limited by Resources: Computer and RAM. The higher the memory the better the resolution.
Renderings here, done in Autocad. Microstation has a better rendering engine but is less universally compatible.
Animation can make a task or function more understandable. "Walk thrus" can give a idea of "space and travel". Animations can show a process remotely to another with clarity. Animations can check clearances and collisions, "during expected operation". I am most familiar using Animation for simple presentations. Making meetings and discussions "More informative" and "Ideas" more "Eye catching."
