Thanks to the digital age, innumerable technologies are rapidly surfacing to totally transform 3D Architectural Services. While there are few creative technologies that are quite new, while others are comparatively older that are rapidly developing over the recent times. Here are 10 most innovative technologies that we can make use of to bring a huge improvement in the architectural world.
1. Generative Design
Generative Design copies how real life organisms work in nature. It is created through algorithms that bring about a number of variations in the designs. The parameters given as input return an output that can be adapted into a widely usable architectural form.
2. Additive Design
This is quite similar to generative design and is mostly known as 3D printing, but on a large scale (eg. industrial scale). To put in simple terms, it utilizes generative design in combination with advanced additive manufacturing.
3. Virtual Reality
VR is no longer difficult to implement in real life. In any case, it has become nearly as basic as gaming. All you require is the headset and a product program. Regarding the product program, you can import existing 3-D models from other platforms like Rhino, Revit, and Sketch Up into an augmented simulation compatible program.
4. Augmented Reality
Augmented reality uses an existing environment and adds new features to it. This goes hand in hand with the previous technology.
5. Google Tilt Brush
This Google tool is built as a room scale 3D painting virtual reality application. In fact, it has more artistic and fun features that encourages all to experiment with their imagination, creativity, and art. It can be synchronized with VR applications, opening the doors to endless possibilities. This is an amazing tool to experiment with 3D Architectural Design in today's world.
6. Touchable Holograms
Here is another interesting tool that gives us an edge to go beyond the real world and experiment with your imagination in a virtual reality. Excitingly, it is built of 3D virtual objects but can be modified by a human hand. Although few diverse applications of this tool have been found in the real world, it can be utilized in the 3D Architectural Services as well. In fact, scientists say "the present status of light technology doesn’t allow us to interact and feel light as matter." Interestingly enough, the ‘touchable hologram’ can change this perspective totally.
7. Architecture Robots
This is still an old technology, as robots have been utilized in various fields for various activities since years, including in construction sites. However, today's robots are modified to be having more efficiency than previous models. Additionally, they can be synchronized with Artificial Intelligence (AI) to perform tasks and boost efficiency.
8. 3D Printing
3D printing technology has evidently become one of the most popular technologies of this decade. Though this technology is a much debated one, being told to be the beginner of the third industrial revolution. If you look closely, 3D printing is a similar technology as additive manufacturing. You can make an object by layering up from the ground level, through computerized programs and hardware’s.
9. Smart Everything
We all have come across the terms “Smartphones”, “Smart technology”, etc. Usually, these refer to items having a smart intelligence or in-built responsive technology. For instance, technologies with sensors to detect temperature changes and backups are considered to be smart.
10. Cloud computing
Not very new, cloud computing is also an excellent technology to improve 3D architecture through on-demand availability of resources. Such data centers are continuously evolving to be better, faster, and more efficient. These technologies with cut throat innovation are tremendously transforming the ways of 3D Architectural Services as we know it.
