It’s been a while!
Greetings from the all-new Click3D bunker! – As the title of this blog entry suggests, it has been a while (and then some) since Click3D’s last entry on this here blog. The reasons for this are many and mainly work-related – working in-house for clients old and new plus remote commissions and a move to West Sussex all mean that time has been at a premium. There’s also the small and insignificant matter of downloading some updates for the site ...Read More →
Educating the Client
So, a more sober blog posting today, this specifically to do with how to inform the client of the necessities and processes involved with any kind of architectural visualisation project.
Above and beyond managing expectation, whereby the client is told that in order to achieve the desired result a certain amount of time is required, clearly it is important to be as transparent as possible in terms of acquiring information, when needs to be submitted by and milestones. However, if the ...Read More →
Portfolio update: Heathrow T2
It’s been a busy few weeks in Click3D-world so the lack of portfolio updates (or updates at all, for that matter) probably isn’t all that surprising. To remedy that, added to the portfolio today is one of three images created for a pitch presentation for a luxury bar in Heathrow’s Terminal Two.
Whereas most architectural visualisation projects rely on or are guided by CAD submissions and specific material details, this was notable for their absence, apart from a floorplan and a ...Read More →
Photoshop visualisation….on a Mac!
So, it’s clearly been quiet on the count of blog updates from Click3D for the last few weeks and there’s good reason for that (well, if we’re honest with each other, ways and means could be found around it but let’s not dilute the idea of heroic self-sacrifice for now…), that being working in-house on some illustrations for an Italian bag and accessory company with a workflow which required a different approach from the usual methodology.
Key to this project was ...Read More →
Causes for celebration
So, two years ago today Click3D opened its doors (well, picked up the phone and started making calls, but that doesn’t sound anywhere near as grand) and entered the big, bad world of architectural visualisation. Naturally there have been good times, even better times, bad times and some a fair bit worse than that but we carry on regardless, bloodied if unbowed, and so here’s to the next two years and two beyond that, too.
Since and in between the last ...Read More →
Portfolio update: Bury Hill (Part one)
Good morning! – Hope you all have that Friday feeling as we tumble towards another (hopefully) relaxing and rewarding weekend.
It’s been quite busy in the land of Click3D recently – most recently assistance has been delivered in the setting up of an in-house visualisation department at a design and build firm, with phase one complete and future phases waiting in the wings. So, taking that into account, perhaps it is time to add another image to the portfolio – This ...Read More →
Tutorial#1: Masonry Designer
Good morning! A slightly different entry to the blog today, this being a tutorial on the Accurate Image Masonry Designer application. Creating brick textures is something which is often fraught with issue as a tiling texture on something with a large expanse, as brick is likely to be, is an instant image-killer.
So, this program and the tutorial as detailed below, goes some way to assisting at the very basic level and avoiding the main and common issue highlighted above. Without ...Read More →
Portfolio update: Residential interior#2
Good morning! Here is the second of two images created for M2M’s recent interior refurbishment project. Although the space was relatively small, two views were needed in order to show the full intent of the designer’s concept for the space, and these two images satisfied that need, both in the technical sense and also to the satisfaction of the client and designer, hence the recent testimonial.

Portfolio update: Residential interior
Good morning and greetings from the Click3D bunker. Today’s blog posting features one of two images (the second will naturally follow soon) created to illustrate a designer’s vision for the remodelling of a client’s property. Focusing on the living space – although the entire property was to be refurbished – the brief was to show the quality of the new fixtures, fittings and finishes that they had proposed. This necessitated two cameras with wide-angle lens to fully convey the space ...Read More →
