MY COMPLEX PROJECTS

3D MODELING AND RENDERING A CHURCH

In one of the mails I have received  recently I am asked to show the complex Architectural projects I have done . In replay to that mail I thought I will share  and show you some of my complex projects  . I have friends who are designers and I often execute the visualization part of their design work . One among them are specialized in designing Churches . Churches basically have more intricate detailing work and mostly belong to Gothic Architecture with some native regional touch in it . The following view of church is one such project  which was moderately complex .

CHURCH SABEERCAD AUTOCAD 3D 0As you can see , in this church the features are relatively simple  . After the completion of this project , I am given I another plan and elevation of a church and I was asked to make a 3D model and render the project  in almost 2 days . When you look at the plan and elevation it might appear as simple work . (Please click to expand each images to see an enlarged view)

But I am supposed to incorporate whole lot of detailing on individual elements like pillars , domes etc. Completing the 3D modeling part of such a huge project within the stipulated time as a challenge .

Only this elevation was given and we are supposed to visualize the rear side elevation by using the plan as the reference . I am also given the instruction that the rear side should have dome which should resemble the dome of ST.Peters Basilica  at Rome designed by Michelangelo

By keeping these details in mind I have created the solid model of this Project in around 12 hours . Solid modeling commands such a extrude , revolve and Loft is given , then the model is edited using solid editing . Please visit my channel http:/www.youtube.com/sabeercad.com  and see Introduction to 3D part-1 and Part-2  to get an idea about how these commands can be executed . The following figures shows the wireframe , surface , shaded and rendered representation of this project .

The 3D model is then taken from AutoCAD to 3dSMax where in lights , camera and materials are given and rendered to generate a photo realistic output . This file is then taken to Adobe Photoshop  to perform the photo editing part . You can notice the resemblance of the dome at the back with that of ST.Peters Basilica .

(Please refer my Youtube Channel to get a clear understanding of this effective  procedure . You can see the 3D modeling , Rendering and Photo editing of a single storied residence there using AutoCAD , 3DSMax and Photoshop )

These are the views of two other chapels done for the same Designer .

I have also got opportunities to design mosques which are designed in Islamic Architecture . I have incorporated two mosque project views  .

These are some of the complex projects I have done . The purpose of sharing this post is to give you an idea of the power of AutoCAD in making complex Architectural models . Hope this has given you some useful insights . Please share your thoughts with me .
