How can you turn a plain, two-dimensional photo or drawing into a three-dimensional model?
Will you do it manually? Or will look for a better and smarter way of conversion?
You can easily turn 2D designs of your prototype model into digital models through 3D modeling. The Philippines, one of the countries that are starting to embrace this technology, is one of the best destinations when you are looking for someone to do this for you. Especially in 3D2GO, we have a roster of talented and young people who have keen eyes for details and bright and creative minds for making highly technical designs. This includes the use of tools needed for the process.
Aside from creating digital models, you also have the option to turn it into tangible objects through the process called 3D printing.
Enter the world of 3D modeling to understand how the entire procedure works.
A 3D model is created by connecting and manipulating points together in a simulated 3D space to form a mesh.
One of the first steps needed to create a 3D model is to collect several photos or two-dimensional blueprints that illustrate the front, back, top, bottom, and right and left side views of the object. Capturing every angle will make 3D modeling easier and faster. The result will also look more realistic.
When the set of photos are completed, the 3D modeler usually starts with a primitive shape like a cube, cylinder, or a plane using 3D modeling tools such as the AutoCAD. After that, he will start to manipulate points to start creating the mesh or the core of the model and turn it into a concrete-looking object.
Producing the final object involves a painstaking process of arranging the points to achieve the 3D version of the 2D drawing.
Most often, beginners get overwhelmed with the details and process needed to create 3D models. It usually takes time and determination to learn this. This is why for those who do not specialize in making 3D models, seeking the help of the experts is the best thing to do.
3D modeling is used in different fields such as advertising, architecture, engineering, entertainment, and game development. Most of the time, companies from these industries employ their own 3D modelers or AutoCAD operators to create the 3D models that they need. If not, they get the services of freelancers.
But how about individuals who also need this service?
For instance, students who need to produce 3D models for their school projects can turn to 3D modeling service or 3D printing companies like 3D2GO. By doing this, they will get access to a team of skilled 3D modelers and to the tools needed to create 3D models. If they need not only 3D digital copies of their prototype, they can also have it 3D printed. Through this, they don’t have to fret anymore on trying to master the intricate tools and procedures needed when using 3D modeling software.
With 3D modeling and 3D printing, your 2D drawings don’t only have to remain on paper. Give volume and life to it. For more information, send us a message at firstname.lastname@example.org.
