Technological Advancements in Architecture and Product Development

Technology has been making our lives easier and more efficient for as long as humans have been alive. Specifically, programs like AutoCAD have been making architecture and product design more practical.  Where architects and designers used to have to hand draw their houses or inventions, requiring painstaking work and left much of it up to human error they are now able to effortlessly create and duplicate objects.  With the invention of 3D printing, people are able to create prototypes for a relatively low startup fee.

The true concept of architecture began in Egypt where buildings became more than about survival, they started to become aesthetically pleasing and had some form of design. Pyramids were some of the first geometrically designed, accurate structures erected.  Following that the Greeks began constructing buildings using pillars, which led into the Romans building structures designed for large gatherings of people.  Creation of the Arch and the Vault.  Medieval ages invented the domes to roof large spaces, which spawned the creation of skeleton framing.  The renaissance was a time of refinement leading into the industrial era which called for the creation of large factories and warehouses.  In modern architecture strength and sleek appearance has become at the forefront.  Clean lines with polished surfaces and smooth finishes reign supreme.  With the increase of the population in recent decades buildings have begun expanding upwards to increase city densities.  The buildings we take for granted today are the result of centuries of technological advancements and refinement.

Many traditionalists in the architecture field feel that powerful technologies are stifling creativity; however, in my opinion, what it is doing is allowing a wider base of people to use this tool.  This may create a feeling of mediocrity among the elitist architects or design obsessed, in reality the software is simply a tool for creation, the end result is achieved faster and easier with more precision, it is up to the artistic abilities of the architects to push this medium to new boundaries which many are capable of doing.

Creating prototypes used to cost hundreds of thousands of dollars, required teams of designers and manufacturers to

6 Best Services for Architectural Rendering

When creating an architectural render there are some must-have programs to help you put together the best 3d rendering scene you possibly can.  They make the work easier, faster and higher quality.

  1. Xfrog Vegetation packs are premade, gorgeous 3d models of trees, shrubs, and flowers, although they are very realistic, they present a problem of computing resources.  Architectural Rendering Studio, RealSpace 3d utilizes premade, high-quality 3D models with their high-end architectural rendering services.  They are able to put a high number of models into their scene because of an auto distribution tool which saves them time.  In addition to time savings from not having to individually place single trees, RealSpace is able to save computing resources by instancing the models.  Because of RealSpace’s use of Octane, they are able to instance hundreds of trees and not impact the rendering time greatly.  Most architectural rendering companies are forced to cheat their images with 2D tree images photoshopped on top of their render, this typically works reasonably well; however, when moving to animation projects this technique falls flat.  Because RealSpace uses 3-dimensional trees in their scenes animations can occur fluidly and are created with relative ease.Architectural 3d rendering
  2. Octane Render provides a fantastic unbiased, physically correct 3d rendering engine.  They were the first company who utilized graphic card’s untapped potential in the rendering world.  Up to 50 times faster than conventional CPU-based rendering software.  In addition to providing a fast, realistic, rendering engine Octane is easy to learn and easy to use.  Despite these benefits I have found that it’s integration into Maya is less than ideal.  I believe the initial architecture of Octane was wonderful, especially the standalone.  They then hired another company to work on creating the plugins for programs like 3Ds Max, Blender, and Maya.  I’ve personally only used the Max and Maya versions, in my experience they are not logically setup and riddled with bugs, the quality and speed of the backbone of the rendering engine keeps me around though.
  3. realspace3d renderingRender Farm Services one of the struggles with 3D rendering is the render time.  A single image can take days to render.  If you are working on an animation project with a deadline the solution may lie in render farm services.  Imagine a service which allows the speed of your render to only be limited by the size of your checkbook.   Cloud computing is becoming increasingly viable and it makes sense as data transferring improves.
  4. 3D Warehouse if you’re in need of a quick model which doesn’t need to be overly detailed 3d warehouse provides a huge library of 3d models.  The models are created using SketchUp and are typically not the cleanest meshes to work with, especially if moving to another program like Maya or 3ds Max; however, I tend to use them as filler meshes when creating a scene.  There is a large amount of appliances which, when textured and lit properly, are more than sufficient for background pieces in an architectural rendering.  The 3d mesh isn’t overly clean though so don’t expect to be able to do too much modification.
  5. Turbo Squid if it is high-quality 3d models which you’re after but on too tight of a time constraint to model it yourself, purchasing models from turbo squid are a great solution.  I’ve bought high-quality architectural visualization packages which allowed me to quickly populate a scene with extremely detailed models which fit the scene perfectly.  It is important to choose models which are compatible with your personal 3D software as it makes editing significantly easier.
  6. Textures Creating high-quality textures is arguably one of the biggest keys to creating realistic 3d renders.  Creating each texture from scratch or searching through google can be time-consuming.  Textures.com offers high quality, seamless textures ready to use.

5 of the Biggest Tech Advances for the Month of November

Tech News for the Month of November 2016

  1. Microsoft has reached human parity for speech recognition.  Speech recognition has been around since the 1970’s but this is the first time speech recognition has been on par with that of humans.  This does not mean that the recognition is perfect but it is a monumental step.  Microsoft says their next step in this development will be to pursue speech understanding.  Microsoft already uses the somewhat creepy “Cortana” as  their robot listening device.  Their goal is to develop Cortana into a more effective assistant, and likely a better robot at understanding what your advertisements should look like.
  2. Edward Snowden is growing increasingly concerned about the number of people who rely solely on facebook for news.  The main concern isn’t the plethora of fake news which consumes facebook, but rather, the limited alternative sources people are seeking.  Many people are beginning to exist in an echo chamber politically, it is easy to tailer your google searches and article titles to suit your political views with no regards for facts.  Snowden’s greatest concern seems to be the monopoly companies like Facebook, Google and Twitter have on providing people with new, especially news which contains misleading headlines.  People were inundated with politcal content leading up to the election, lots of which was untrue or mis represented at the least “To have one company that has enough power to reshape the way we think, I don’t think I need to describe how dangerous that is,” Snowden said.
  3. Elon Musk unveiled the new Tesla Solar Roofs this month.  This complete’s the 3 step plan to generate (solar roof) store, (powerwall) and transport (motors).  As per usual, Elon Musk’s company has present an obvious solution to a very apparent problem.  There is no doubt Elon is one of the greatest minds of our generation, but this is not a terribly complicated problem.  The obvious question is why hasn’t this been done for decades.  There have been a number of examples of electric cars being squashed by big oil companies, for example, those features in “who killed the electric car”
  4. Finland could become the first country to ban coal use for energy.  Finland is looking to put forth a ban on all coal usage for energy.  The country has been working towards this goal for years now and it seems it is finally taking shape.  In addition, France has said they are planning to go coal free by 2023.  Canada has said it will aim to be coal free by 2030. The chips are starting to fall with regards to archaic, polluting fossil fuels but is it too little too late.  The earth has crossed 400 parts per million for CO2 recently, Toby from the office seems to think it’s already hopeless.
