3d Model House
3D model houses have been used by architects for a number of years as a way to provide clients with a realistic view of the houses that they plan. Although building a 3D model house is a part of their curriculum, it is often executed by companies that specialize in making these models based on the plans that the architect provides. Today, while the industry still continues to grow, 3D model house building has gone from being solely a commercial activity, to being a popular hobby.
3D model houses require a lot of time and patience and the idea of building one should only be considered if you have the dedication to finish what you started. Even though these models are incredibly exciting to look at when they are done, the process of making them from scratch may not be appealing to everyone. So before starting off on this hobby, you need to be sure that you are absolutely dedicated to 3D model houses and enjoy the hard work that has to be put in.
Now that you know that you are willing to put in all it takes, the next step becomes the most important bit and that is to design your 3D model house. The whole idea of designing is similar to what an architect does although it doesn't have to be as detailed and precise as an architect's plan.
You can choose to make the interior of the 3D model house or do the exteriors, or both maybe. Each aspect has different challenges and at the end of it, the model will look as beautiful in one, as it will in another.
Supplies are the key to building your 3D model house and you can head out to any crafts store for the basic material. Most 3D model houses are made of cardboard, Styrofoam as well as other materials such as wood, plastic and even some metals in some cases. You will also need some glue and tools like scissors, a knife maybe, paper cutters, etc. Once you have all the required materials as well as the tools, it is time to embark on the journey of building 3D model houses.
The process can be quite simple. You start with the plan of the 3D model house and you can choose to make the plan to scale, or life-size. When making it life-size, then the plan is easier to replicate as you can simply cut out the shapes according to the plans that you have made. In a plan that's scaled down, you need to be a little more careful about the scale, especially when cutting out shapes or objects. This ensures that when you are putting everything together in the end, it fits.
Once you have the walls and rooms ready, things can get easier or tougher, depending on what direction you head into. If you choose to buy readymade items, then you can easily get furniture, light fitments, people and even cars very easily, in different materials and sizes. As a result, all you need to do is buy the objects that you need, in the scale that you need and your 3D model house can be furnished and ready to go.
However, if you want a bigger challenge, then you can always build these furniture and fittings on your own. The process is similar to making the 3D model house and once you make the plan, you simply need to cut out the object; fix it; colour or paint it, and put it in place.
Once you are through with these, your 3D model house is ready to be put on display. You can choose to do plants and lawns with the real thing, breaking small twigs to make trees and shredded grass to make the lawns.
All in all, building something with your own hands is an incredible experience and when it is something as beautiful and pretty as a 3D model house, joy may know no bounds.
