Architectural 2D and 3D floor plans – Architectural Rendering Services

2D CAD Floor plan is a two dimensional representation of any building floor for construction. 2D CAD Drafting Services include construction drawing sets, 2D CAD floor plans, section and elevation drawings etc. These set of 2D CAD drawings help clients on site while constructions.

2D Floor Plans

2D floor plans can be in gray scale and in color. Floors plan drawings represent objects or elements in 2 dimensions. Hence every element i.e. stair, column, fixtures, doors, windows, spaces and other attributes in this 2D drawing appears flat. Architects and Engineers use these drawings for obtaining an overall idea of a designed building or a room. A person who creates floor plan 2D drawings is called a CAD Technician. 2D CAD plans can be created using AutoCAD software, Turbo CAD, Smart draw, Revit etc. Architectural CAD Drafting Services usually encompasses 2D CAD plans in its service range.

Floor plans basically include dimensions of every object that are placed on the floor. These dimensions help you in understanding actual size and length of the objects in real life. These dimensions depict distance between the walls so that you can conceptualize the room sizes as well as wall lengths effectively. This drawing contains details of everything i.e. furniture like sofa set, table, chair, etc., fixtures like a bathtub, water heaters, etc. which are deposited on the floor.

2D CAD floor plans show the floor and the objects on the floor up to 3 inches from the floor level. This drawing represents a section of the building where the building is cut along a horizontal axis which lies 3 inches above from the floor. In this drawing, everything is drafted to scale that means the size of a drawing is decreased so the entire building floor or room can fit on a piece of the drawing sheet. In the full-scale drawing, dimensions of everything represent their exact same size as these objects are in real life. CAD technicians always mention the scale that they use in a floor plan.

3d Floor Plans

In the 3D floor plan, a virtual 3D model is created from the 2D floor plan drawing. This 3D model provides a top view to viewers and helps viewers in getting a better understanding of the architectural plans. This 3D model does not contain a ceiling so it presents a 3D view of the floor accurately and assists Architects as well as Engineers in acquiring full architectural visualization of the floor efficiently.

A 3D floor plan model must comprise of walls, floors, windows, doorways and exterior walls. Other common attributes that can be optionally included in this model are kitchen fixtures, cabinets, wall tiles, bathroom fixtures, furniture, electronic devices, etc. These objects are added for giving a realistic touch to the model.

3D floor plans aid Builders, Contractors, Engineers and Architects to explain the floor of the designed buildings thoroughly to clients. These 3D models assist clients to understand the design of the proposed building and other complicated architectural concepts. These models facilitate Architects, Engineers to alter design elements (if required) during the modeling and design phase. These models are also used in Architectural 3D Rendering Services.

Architectural rendering of a 3D floor plan model provides a photo-realistic view of the model so that you can easily ideate your building design more effectively. Real estate marketers significantly use these models for bidding purpose. Tesla Outsourcing Services provides high-quality 2D and 3D Floor Plan services to clientele all over the world.
