Cloud Computing and Render Farms in Architectural Modeling: The Basics

Modern day architectural plans are no longer done with only pen and paper. Different architectural models often accompany today’s construction projects. These models, both for marketing and construction purposes, use computer-aided design (CAD). CAD helps architects to simulate certain conditions or try design prototypes without physical risks.

3D modeling- another art world

What does it take to become an artist? From my understanding and experience in 3D modeling programs art courses are not necessary. However, do you need schooling in art to be an artist? In the contemporary art world fine arts degrees are pretty much a prerequisite to be an artist. If you try to crack into the art world without a BFA and MFA you need to play the political game much harder. As a side note, the history of art is in itself an exclusionary story that has and continues to marginalize certain art forms and people. That being said, a 3D modeler could play the game and show work in galleries without a degree in fine art. Getting into the art world through 3D modeling would be the exception and not the norm.

How SketchUp has changed 3D Modeling

Since the release of SketchUp by its creators @Last Software in 2000, this 3D modeling program quickly become widely used by industry in various professions. A quick google search of SketchUp produces various video tutorials on YouTube and numerous websites, blogs, and articles dedicated to discussions and Q & As. SketchUp appeals to many first time users due to its straightforward interface. The software imitates the traditional drawing process, where the mouse acts as a pencil to draw on the monitor acting as paper. There is even an option to use a stylus and pad that work directly like pen and paper.
