When you need to see what it looks like before it's made.

3D Model of a grand piano with restaurant brand in the back board.

3D modeling offers the benefit of seeing a brand or product in advance from any viewpoint. This piano is the focal point

of an upscale restaurant named Opus 9, featuring gourmet food, wine, fire, and live music.

Rendering surfaces differently enhances visualization.

The following series of seven renderings shows how a trademark mascot (praying mantis) 3D model, is visualized in a variety of surfaces for analysis, or materials for appearance, or lighting for display.

3D model of Praying Mantis

A formative wire frame, shows the exact shape in terms of numerical contours, which can then convert the model for interpretation in 3D printing or physical fabrication in CNC processes.
