Three dimensional floorplans are on the cutting edge of the latest technology to showcase properties online and even some uses for printed materials.
The property is measured to scale and then replicated using specialized 3D software which can be embedded in a website in a manner that will allow your web traffic to 'handle' the model like it was scaled miniature in their hands, get realistic views of the space from inside, or used to create stills and overhead views to aid in understanding the layout.
How do you capture a 3D Floorplan
In order to make an accurate, true to life and proper scale 3D model of a property interior, I need to measure every dimension. It involves using a laser distance measure to avoid using a clumsy tape measure, and taking paper notes which I use to create the exact 3D model on software when I get back to my office. It works almost exactly the same as an engineer's CAD software for building and construction schematics.
How do you deliver a 3D Floor Plan
You can use a 3D floor plan in a few ways. The first, and most interactive way for your web site traffic is to embed a 3D model version of the floor plan onto a web page dedicated to showcasing the property. This allows your web visitors to move, rotate and zoom in an out on specific areas of the 3D model as they choose. The second is to use the 3D model in order to 'shoot stills' of it at key angles that will help viewers understand the flow of the property - notably overhead views in the style of a floor plan or construction schematic. Overhead floor plan views can also be used to illustrate the camera's shooting position of real photographs taken of the property.
How long does it take to make a 3D floor plan?
It takes me about 45 minutes to measure and record every dimension of the average 2000 square foot home.
