This year’s been more ‘3D’ than ever before – with Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality proving to be the next big thing, and even available from most current smartphone models, there’s no doubt that the modern world is all about 3D design and concepts, on anything from our weather apps through to our house designs.

Of course, this doesn’t just apply to the technology that you can find in your pocket – for anything from Computer Aided Design (or CAD) through to rendering and animation, 3D technology is king. There are a million ways you can use it and hundreds of ways you can enhance your business.

See your designs come to life

There’s something far more impressive about introducing your customer or client to a 3D Solidworks model of the part or project you’ll be creating for them. Though there’s something to be said for the more old-school 2D designs and representations, offering something your customer can take away with them – a 360-degree digital version of their structure, object or item with full detail – has that special something. A fully-realised design is also of great advantage when it comes to project developments, allowing you and your client to see any issues, changes or other quality assurance requirements much more efficiently.

Create stunning concepts

It’s not just about being able to pick up any amends or oddities in your 3D design. Whereas a basic CAD sketch or design can give you and your potential clients an idea of how something will work, a 3D design not only gives them that structure, it also gives them insight into the functionality and workings of a project. If you’re pitching for a valuable project or looking to encourage potential customers with what you’re able to achieve, a 3D design offers an impressive impact. Equally, you can show off a full project from inception to creation with just digital imagery – giving a seamless and professional feel to your business.

Fully-realised marketing

In many industries, keeping up with the latest innovations and technologies is of the utmost importance – and not just from a customer perspective. By utilising CAD animation and impressive design work, you can show off exactly what your company can do with slick visuals and professional concepts. Whether you’re creating a machine part, a building or any other structure, a 3D animation shows just how in touch with the industry your organisation is. Take your potential customers or website visitors on a full concept journey – from initial design sketches through to fully realised 3D concepts – in just the click of a button. For a more digital spin on your marketing, 360-degree product animations or sketches could prove an ideal way to showcase your products or offerings through a digital brochure or app.

Venture into AR

Though very much in the infancy of its production, 3D CAD and animation puts you several feet towards developing Augmented Reality technology for your products, allowing clients to see for themselves how products and projects will look in a real-world setting, whether that’s an overlaid 2D sketch or full 3D product design placed upon a boardroom table. Keep yourself in the loop of future sales techniques with 3D design and high-quality CAD.

If you’re looking to bring your business forward to the digital world, or you’re just looking to add a little extra to a specific project, 3D CAD and animation might be for you.
