7 Benefits of 3D Models

7 Benefits of 3D Models


Lower Design Costs

3D models allow designers to see what an object will look like without having to construct real world models. This allows changes in the design to be made faster and with lower design costs, because it negates the need to build new real world models just to show a client a new design. Designers are able to use 3D graphics during the early, middle, and late design stages. When the design is complete, one real world model can be made at that point.

Expand Creativity

Since 3D modeling allows a modeler to make design more quickly, they are able to apply more creativity to a design. This is because a designer can apply complicated schemes in the 3d software and show the client what those designs might look like. That is great news, because a client might be far more impressed with the elaborate computer design that they are being shown as opposed to a boring clay model that is made by an artist.


Designers are able to use technologies such as cloud computing or swap files via email in order to work on a design more rapidly. This allows different designers to contribute to a project at the same time, which again speeds up design time and allows a better made project to be delivered to a client. The collaboration also allows for error checking which will reduce costs and save time later on during production.

Improved Product Development

Normally when a company makes a certain product, they tend to improve upon that product until the product reaches the end of its life cycle. Using 3d modeling designers are able to make improvements to a product by fixing errors or improving features. This allows product development to occur more rapidly and allows a quicker response time for the company.

Improved Presentations

Sales people are able to offer better presentations to a client because the client will be able to see what the finished product will look like. This results in more closed deals and more contracts, which in turn creates more revenue for the company. The model will be able to changed more rapidly in order to meet the client’s expectations should the client wish a change be made.

Reduced Misinterpretation

Using a 2d modeling, designers can misunderstand what a designer intended when they drafted a blue print. A 3d model addresses this issue because other designers will be able to see what someone else intended to make when they drew the design. This translates into increased quality and allows for less errors in during the design stage.

Cleared Details

The 3d design model allows others to more clearly understand the fine details of a design. Builders are able to zoom into certain areas of a design in order to obtain measurement information or color details that might not be readily available. That results in increased production that is more accurate and lowers the cost of production.
