2D Rendering and Drawing

What is 2D Rendering and Drawing?


2D Rendering is a process that allows architects and designers to showcase a 2D model of what they are building by producing a more precise and more structured 2D image on a screen, instead of a physical drawing. 

2D Rendering is a technology that allows you to bring images and the daydreams in your head to life. Rendering itself is the process of formulating from a realistic or non-realistic photo to a computer program for better representation and visualization. 

 This technique uses computer programs to create an object in space, tweak design elements, and add shading, lighting, and texture elements. Architects are able to present their building designs in a compelling and flexible format that increases the likelihood of investments.

From a practical standpoint, 2D rendering allows the architect to see their building design in real-time in order to identify problem areas or necessary adjustments. Because architects and builders don’t have to constantly re-measure structural elements and building sites, it provides them with advanced control over their building projects. Our service offers full-color 2D renderings of projects from full-scale elevations, helping you sell your design while reducing building time and confusion between parties.

This software is often utilized because it can give architects, homebuyers, and designers a more precise picture to see a physical representation of what a new home or property might look like when it comes to the pre-building process. While clients can generally get the idea of a building’s layout from a rough floor plan, they often don’t see the big picture of design elements and how they work together. While floorplans might get the message across to an imaginative thinker, most people do not have the design skills to create attractive imagery in their head without a guide; this makes it hard for engineers to fine-tune a building’s trouble spots plan.

In the past, it was not uncommon for investors to be unsatisfied with a finished project because the end result was different than what they imagined from looking at a 2D illustration. Nowadays, architects cannot only display the exterior of the building, including how the structure fits into the landscape, but they can also walk investors through each floor’s interior to get a clear picture of the concept.

Benefits of 3D Rendering and Drawing


The creation of a 2D Rendering takes knowledge of geometry, usage of lines and varying shapes, and overall symmetry. Unliked 3D Rendering it does not require the use of math. 

Once the transition is actually made, it is called rendering. Once these rendering files are made, they can have different lightings, shadings, textures, and vantage points. These are then delivered in a digital image. 

What is so special about Rendering is that it can be used across all industries. It just happens to be utilized the most in cinema, design visualizations, and architecture for your purpose. 

The 2D rendering process speeds up project turnaround times with the added benefit of better communication between clients, investors, builders, and city officials. 2D Rendering is highly accurate and creates a picture of the aesthetically pleasing and practical building. Beautiful architectural illustrations are easier to sell to potential clients and investors. These designs’ flexible nature speaks to city and county officials looking for zoning and building regulation compliance.

Designs may be changed in real-time, meaning that you can make adjustments to elements while in a meeting with investors or clients. If they don’t like a specific bay of windows, or they want to open up more space in a courtyard, you don’t have to go “back to the drawing board.” This allows for a collaborative environment with open communication lines, inevitably leading to a higher chance of selling your design.

The ease of showing and changing 2D renderings means that architects have more creative freedom with their designs and more confidence in presentation. Because 2D renderings are accurate and comprehensive design tools, it significantly cuts down on building changes that are requested during and after construction. In addition, design flaws and restrictive building codes can be addressed and resolved beforehand, instead of while the project is underway. Of course, this dramatically affects budget: it cuts down on extra labor, reducing costs while keeping everyone on the same page from the beginning. This means avoiding expensive mistakes during the project.

Our team uses their expert knowledge to bring your visions to life professionally. Being well versed in the construction industry, we have seen it all, making us the best fit for you.
