What is 3D Modeling? What’s It Used For?

3D modeling

3D modeling is the process of creating a three-dimensional model of an object. The task of 3D modeling is to develop a visual volumetric image of the desired object. An unlimited number of products can be printed using a ready-made 3D model.

Usually many 3d product modeling companies provide engineering services, 3D design modeling, as well as object visualization services. To create a 3D model, it is desirable to provide as much information as possible. It can be a drawing, photographs, sketches with dimensions, or the original part. In the case of subsequent reconstruction of the model, information is also needed about the functional purpose of the future product (exposure to physical exertion, design features).

Best 3D Modeling Software

Basically, specialists use a wide range of software for to create 3D model for products or other objects, such as:

  • 3ds Max
  • Solidworks
  • AutoCAD
  • Cinema 4D
  • Sketch Up
  • Blender
  • Maya 3D
  • ZBrush

and others, which allows you to exactly match the technical specifications and the wishes of the customer.

3D modeling: The concept

Three-dimensional graphics (3D modeling) is a kind of computer graphics, which combines methods and means of creating a three-dimensional object. These techniques include the following methods for creating an object – determining its parameters, creating a “skeleton” or a volumetric shape without parts, creating parts in different ways.

3D model tools are special programs such as ProEngineering, SolidWork, 3DMAX and a number of others that allow for volumetric visualization of bodies. 3D graphics are indispensable as a way to demonstrate a future object.

Uses of 3D Modeling

To start manufacturing, you need to draw and then make a three-dimensional model. Then, using the 3D model, using the methods of operational prototyping (3D printing, milling, mold casting), they create a prototype of the manufactured object that has a realistic look.

At the end of 3D visualization, the resulting image can be used for packaging design or for creating advertising media, POS materials, for design of exhibition stands. 3D modeling and 3D visualization are used for the manufacture of products or packaging, prototyping and animation. Therefore, 3Nitro provides 3D modeling services in the following cases:

  • If it is necessary to evaluate the parameters of the product before it is created with original dimensions, from original material, with original complete set.
  • If it is necessary to obtain a 3D model of the planned interior.

In these situations, you will need to use the services of professionals in the field of 3D modeling. The 3D model is an integral part of a quality presentation. It serves as the basis for the production of a product prototype.

A special feature is the ability to carry out a full range of work related to the creation of realistic 3D objects, from modeling to prototyping. The complex implementation of all work significantly reduces the time spent on finding a contractor and creating technical specifications.

In case you need a new product, many companies will help with the release of a trial series of it and the establishment of further release.

Modeling or development cost

The cost of 3D modeling depends on the complexity of the object, the required level of detail, as well as the information content of the technical task.

To estimate the cost of modeling, you can send photos of the object at the ruler, sketches, sketches, drawings. The cost of 3D modeling or development depends on the complexity of the object, the required level of detail, as well as the information content of the technical task.

What do you need to create a 3D model of a product?

In order to create a 3D model, you will need a detailed description of the desired result, as well as the original or part of the original product or a drawing. Photos, sketches, sketches are only suitable for modeling characters or estimating the cost of modeling.

After the completion of the work, you will receive a 3D model in electronic form in the format you need.
