Frequently Asked Questions

Below are a list of answers to the frequently asked questions we receive for 3D visualization projects.

  • What information is needed to get started?
    In order to produce 3D renderings and provide you with a customized quotation, we appreciate as much design content and information as possible.

    • CAD Drawings: (Floor Plan, Reflected Ceiling Plan, Elevations) 
    • Mood Board 
    • Material/Finishes Selection 
    • Furniture Selection with dimensions or links 
    • Accessories/Decoration Pegs with dimensions or links 
    • 3D model (If available) 
    • Quick Sketches with dimensions 
    • Site photos for reference 
    • Number of Views needed / Preferred Stand Point
  •  

  • Who are your typical clients?
    Clients who usually avail our services are interior designers, architects, and occasionally home builders and furniture manufacturers.

  • How much does it cost?
    This varies from project to project. Each project is vastly different from one another. Prices vary a lot depending on the level of customization and complexity of the design. Our proposals are based on the workload we undertake and on our client’s requirements. We do not have a fixed rate but we can provide a ballpark price. If you’re looking for a more tailored quotation for your project, you can send us your project files via e-mail.
  • What is your turnaround time (TAT)?
    The turnaround time varies from project to project as well. The more “realistic” the render is expected, the more time it would take. Interior rendering scenes take longer to model and render than exterior scenes. It has more assets, has lots of textures, lots of light sources, and lots of light bouncing which takes more calculation and time to render.

        TL: DR = Interior Rendering Time > Exterior Rendering Time

        For your reference, 3d modeling and rendering typically take 3-5 days per 1-2 images.

  • How many revisions do I get?
    The project rate is always based on the actual workload that you need me to do so each rendered view is inclusive of two (2) minor revisions only. Exceeding revisions or changes after the quotation has been made (i.e., floor layout changes, furniture changes, changes in camera angle, change of mood or light direction, etc.) will incur an additional charge of $25/hour. Please note that any revisions that has been made outside of the quotation will affect the turnaround time (TAT).
     
    If you still need to polish your design while having it visualized, you might want to opt for a per-hour contract.

  • What is final the resolution/pixel size of the renderings?
    2500 pixels x ___ pixels (Depending on your preferred image orientation). If you need a higher resolution, please inform me at the beginning so I can adjust the project rate.
  • How will I receive the files?
    The files will be sent via e-mail. If the files are large, we will send a separate download link.
  • What type of files can we final production in?
    Any image files (.JPG, .PNG, .PDF, .TIF, etc.)
  • Can you send me the 3D model?
    Yes, let me know before we start the project so I can include in it the project rate.
  • What is your 3D Visualization workflow?
    Projects are presented to you in three phases.

 

      Phase 1:

  1. 3D Modelling 
  2. Framing
  3. Lighting
  4. Clay Rendering
  5. Feedback & Approval

 

     Phase 2:

  1. Texture & Material Application
  2. First Draft Rendering
  3. Feedback & Approval

 

      Phase 3:

  1. Staging
  2. Second Draft Rendering
  3. Final Feedback & Approval
  4. Final Rendering
  5. Post Production
  6. Final Delivery

Check our Our Process page for more details.

This varies from project to project. Each project is vastly different from one another so prices vary a lot depending on the level of customization and complexity of the design. Our proposals are based on the workload we undertake and on our client’s requirements.

 

Interior renderings usually start at $200/view.

Interior vignette renders start at $150/view.

For the accuracy of models, as a standard we need:

  • CAD Drawings
    • Floor plan with furniture layout
    • Elevations
    • Reflected ceiling plan
    • Casework

For these items, we prefer website links as they typically include dimensions.

  • Furniture Selection
  • Light Fixtures Selection
  • Material & Finishes Selection
  • Accessories/Decor Selection (if they are custom selections)

*We can also work with rough sketches as long as the dimensions have been annotated.
**If you’re doing a renovation, please send us site photos so we can model the existing doors & windows if they are going to be reused.

The turnaround time varies from project to project. It will depend on the size, complexity of the models & number of views needed. Another major consideration is our availability. The more “realistic” the render is expected, the more time it would take. Interior rendering scenes take longer to model and render than exterior scenes. It has more assets, has lots of textures, lots of light sources, and lots of light bouncing which takes more calculation and time to render.

For the accuracy of models, as a standard we need:

    • Door & Window Schedule
    • Material & Finishes Schedule
    • Landscape plan (if custom selection)

 

This varies from project to project. Each project is vastly different from one another, so prices vary a lot depending on the level of customization and complexity of the design. Our proposals are based on the workload we undertake and on our client’s requirements.

 

Exterior renderings usually start at $ 200/view.

For exterior rendering, we require a minimum of 1-week turnaround time and may require more time based on the complexity of your project and our current workload.

 

 

 

 

Each view is inclusive of two (2) rounds of minor revisions only. As our quotations are calculated and based on the workload of the project that was initially presented and quoted, there will be an additional charge for the exceeding revisions or changes.

 

Additional modeling or changes for individual elements (i.e., furniture, lighting fixtures, accessories, structural changes, etc.. ) requiring additional man-hours are chargeable at $25/hour.

 

Changes that will require us to re-work the angles, layout, and light direction after approval in Phase 1 will be considered as a major revision and/or as an additional view which will incur an additional charge of 70% of the project’s per-view rate.

 

If you need to provide design options for your client, let us know at the beginning so we can give you a discounted rate on the second option.

 

*Please note that any revisions will or might affect the turnaround time (TAT).

    All communications must be done via email for the record.

    A 50% down payment is required before proceeding with Phase I. The final payment of the remaining balance shall be paid upon completion before you receive the files without watermarks.

     

     

    At the moment, we only accept payments through PayPal.

     

     

    Projected Spaces owns the render, but the image is licensed to the client upon payment in full. The client may use the image however he or she sees fit. We also reserve the rights to use the completed renders solely for the purpose of promoting or exemplifying our 3D visualization services in our social media pages, online portfolios, awards or exhibits.

    I’m based in Manila, Philippines (UTC +8h) but I work across time zones. My working hours are from 09:00 p.m. to 06:00 a.m. so communication won’t be a problem.

    I do 3D modeling in Sketchup which most Interior Designers use and VRay for rendering. I use Adobe Photoshop for post-production. I’m also exploring other 3D modeling and rendering software.

    Most of my clients provide 3D models. However, due to the compatibility issues, model quality, and the resolution of textures applied, the 3D files cannot be used directly. Since this will affect the quality of the final image, it is still better to start the model from scratch. I can use the provided model as a reference to build a more detailed model.

    Simple and geometric pieces with little to no embellishments start at $15.
