Being a fresher, just starting out with interior 3d design can give you an overwhelming feeling. In many ways, your colleagues may already be well ahead of you, and the market is moving much faster than them all.
So, there are many things you need to cover and eventually catch up on. The good news is that learning 3D interior design isn’t difficult thanks to a vast number of online tools.
What’s more, is the fact that the resources online can help speed up the learning process.
However, since everyone needs to start somewhere, our article starts from the very beginning. The aftermentioned tips are meant to guide people new to the world of 3D interior design.
Experienced people reading this could learn a few things, but we doubt it because this is the ultimate newbie guide!
Starting with the Right Tools
Becoming an architect or even an interior designer took a lot of time and effort. Though to take things to the next level these days you’ll have to learn how to use 3D interior design software.
Being ready to start is a sign that you’re willing to learn. You can Google and find a bunch of tools which can be pretty confusing. That’s why below are a couple we recommend that you learn.
- SketchUp – It is a pretty basic software and an excellent place to start. However, the fact is that its limited toolset means you’re not going to get very far using it. So, once you learn a little of SketchUp, what you’ve acquired here can be used in other interior design software. But it isn’t something we recommend you use to woo clients.
- Unreal Engine 4 – It was initially developed for gaming and is still used for it. However, it has since then become a pretty good tool for architects. That said while it is very good, it is also very difficult to learn. The upside is that Unreal Engine 4 comes with VR support which means you can always take your clients through a virtual walkthrough of the building’s interior.
- Autodesk 3Ds Max – 3Ds Max is slightly easier to learn than Unreal Engine 4 and isn’t too far behind in the functionality department either. You have access to a great set of tools which will help you render, simulate and visualize various types of interiors.
- Autodesk Revit – Anyone who wants to become a pro should earn Revit. You have to know Revit even if you’re serious about working as an architect since it…
