Newbie to Rendering

Hi all,

I work for a Planning Consultancy so most of our project deliverables are 2d black and white floor plans and elevations. This is the main requirement for planning in the UK but I want to be able to show our schemes in more visual ways.

I have been experimenting with 3d party software, Artlantis, Lumion, Twinmotion, Enscape plus the built on rendering in ArchiCad but as I only have the Solo version I don't get the CineRender option.

Problem is, I love Lumion, it is so quick to produce something nice, has predefined visual styles to select from (personally I like pastels and hand drawn), links nicely with ArchiCad plus has future tools to explore BUT it's so expensive compared to all the others! Can anyone share their experiences; I don't need animation, VR etc, I just want a simple way to make visual representations of what would normally only be seen in 2d.

Thanks

George

Have you looked at simple shaded 3D documents? This would work directly in ArchiCAD, assuming Solo has 3D documents.

You can get shaded vectorial views with or without vectorial hatching. For simple 3D presentations this might be enough.

Can you show an image of what you're thinking here?

Sure, here's an example of 3D documents with some shaded colours and vectorial hatching.
