3D2GO’s process for 3d design and construction

There is a fixed process for any request. But of course, this process will have some personal tweaks from you as we want to make customizing our priority. After all, having unique presentations will surely capture the interest of your clients for their virtual tours of the building.

  1. One of the first steps needed to create a 3D model is to collect several photos or  two-dimensional blueprints that illustrate all angles of the building. Capturing every angle will make 3D modeling easier and faster. The result will also look more realistic.
  2. The 3D modeler usually starts with a primitive shape like a cube, cylinder, or a plane using 3D modeling tools.
  3. Manipulating of points to start creating the mesh or the core of the model and turn it into a concrete-looking building or house.

Software for creating 3d architecture building models


Is an open BIM (Building Information Modeling). It is a complete tool for architects. This allows 3D and 2D drafting, visualization, or building modeling. This CAD software is also known for storing large amounts of information in 3D models.


Its features are specially made for architects. With this, any buildings and infrastructures are being designed and managed. A big advantage of this modeling software is its collaborative aspect. Anyone can access shared models to work on. Avoiding rework will help you to save time with collaborations.


A web-based 3D home design software. It enables professionals to draw floor plans and create 3D renderings. Users can easily draw 2D and 3D floor plans. They can also customize with just a few clicks. It offers more than 7,000 3D objects. As a result, it generates construction drawings and photorealistic renderings.

AutoCAD Architecture

A tool practical for 3D modeling and for visualization. You will be able to create realistic models. It comes with a combination of solid, surface, and mesh modeling tools. This software also allows team collaboration.

Chief Architect

Obtains 2D and 3D rendering. If you don’t have 3D modeling skills, this software architecture design is easy to use. The interface is really intuitive and the software offers smart building tools. It also offers export 360° panorama renderings that are being shared with clients.

All Plan 

Works with Windows perfectly. It allows working on 2D and 3D design easily. The design tools will enable working on drawings, conception, topography. 

Vectorworks Architect

This software allows going from conceptual design to BIM models. It offers all the features needed for the architectural structure using 3D modeling. 


A flexible and powerful CAD software. It allows you to get all the features you need. As a result, you create the concept of your architectural structures. 

Bricscad BIM

Experience the power of free-form modeling with this accuracy of CAD software. It uses AI to help replicate details automatically in your BIM. 

AutoCAD Civil 3D

It has all the same benefits as AutoCAD Architecture. But this is more useful for civil engineering and construction. Furthermore, it is connectable to AutoCAD Civil 3D to Revit. It gives you a chance to rework and complete designs with more structural modeling.

Advantages of a 3d cad drafting

2D plans are used to create 3D designs. The worst part would be having to draw these by hand especially when there are many revisions. A look at 3D models from different angles is being studied before showcasing the draft. 

CAD made the revisions easier and quicker. The production speed and turnaround time of the drafting process are impressive. The software also made industries achieve higher degrees of accuracy in their designs.

With CAD, architects and engineers may offer internal object placement to their clients. They could easily show the interior of a structure. It also lets them render 3D models and previews of projects.

Over the years, CAD has proven to be of great advantage.

Scope of errors from architects and engineers are much lower compared to using the traditional way of drawing. Files are easily edited and printed whenever required. Parts of the drawing can also be mass-produced for future uses. CAD templates save time by providing all information needed. Lastly, CAD is more accurate for it provides a mini version of the complete structure.

Architects and engineers could now focus on other things such as what materials are more stable for the structure. They could work on the safety measures needed before and after construction. They have less to worry about as CAD ensures the accuracy of all information. 

With all these advantages, the finished product would be able to meet the expectations of its stability as a well-structured building.

Another feature is the animation CAD offers. It adds life and color to the prototypes, making them fun and interactive for virtual tours.

Producing the final object involves a painstaking process. But with our in-house artists, we make everything easier for you.
