Topic tags/keywords: design software

Lately I started to seeing these beautiful photo realistic interiors that made out with computer, it s all over the industry, I even have customers are showing me these pictures to what they want. and I had difficulties to explain to my client that this can’t be build like that but its looks nice. its because photography can’t do that well or image not exist, or both. Anyway I stated use few latest render software to comparison each other on my parametric software, Here some example of my latest computer aid designs,the picture below still not look realistic to me, I could make little more better but the question, I ever stop thinking it is fake? Any CAD-CAM cabinet software packages comes near these much.

please let me know what do you think of these !

Looks good man. I work in the architecture field and do renderings all the time. You’re not gonna get much more realistic than that. Did you model in sketch up? What rendered/plug in did you use?

The light reflection effect is a little too even. The wood
looks really good. Messing up the focus a little bit so the
back end is out of focus a bit or something like that
might help it look more real.

Looks amazing actually. I’d love to be skilled enough
with software to do that sort of thing.

I think it looks good enough.

like any other tool – woodworking or not, rendering and modeling is a tool – it is there to do a job and provide you with a product. that product in this case is visualization to the customer (or yourself) of what the end product MAY look like not what the end product WILL look like.

There is a fine line between putting just enough effort to give good visualization and overdoing it and wasting time for no good reason other than self gratification on your rendering skills.

a little superimposing on a real-life photograph of an existing room/setting and some light photoshop work to blend in the differences and your perspective should change from the details in the render itself to the bigger picture of – does this piece fit in that room/environment which is what you/customer should really be focusing on.

just my $0.02

looks good, but change the texture on the panels a bit. Each door assembly has the exact same grain pattern. For general use, this is great…. but if you are going for photo realism, it’ll need to be changed
