A floor plan is the most fundamental architectural diagram, a view from above showing the arrangement of spaces in building in the same way as a map, but showing the arrangement at a particular level of a building. Technically it is a horizontal section cut through a building, showing walls, windows and door openings and other features at that level. The plan view includes anything that could be seen below that level: the floor, stairs (but only up to the plan level), fittings and sometimes furniture. Objects above the plan level (e.g. beams overhead) can be indicated as dotted lines.
An elevation is a view of a building seen from one side, a flat representation of one facade. This is the most common view used to describe the external appearance of a building. Each elevation is labelled in relation to the compass direction it faces, e.g. the north elevation of a building is the side that most closely faces north. Buildings are rarely a simple rectangular shape in plan, so a typical elevation may show all the parts of the building that are seen from a particular direction.
A cross section, also simply called a section, represents a vertical plane cut through the object, in the same way as a floor plan is a horizontal section viewed from the top. In the section view, everything cut by the section plane is shown as a bold line, often with a solid fill to show objects that are cut through, and anything seen beyond generally shown in a thinner line. Sections are used to describe the relationship between different levels of a building. In the Observatorium drawing illustrated here, the section shows the dome seen from the outside, a second dome that can only be seen inside the building, and the way the space between the two accommodates a large astronomical telescope: relationships that would be difficult to understand from plans alone.
3D Modeling Services
3D Floor Plans
3d Floor Plan: basically an axonometric view of a floor plan, arranged with necessary props for a better understanding the layout. This service can provide high or low detail floor plans depending how you intend to use them.
3D Elevation & Exterior views
3D exterior rendering is an essential starting point in visualizing any project. We take great care in our 3D exterior rendering process to portray the important details of color hues, light intensity, light reflection, and shadows creating a life-like portrayal of your building.
3D Interior views
3D Interior Design of your property though 3D images that we create will help you see what the finished design of architects and interior designers will look like.
3D Visualisation Services
Wouldn't it be great to take prospective buyers on a virtual tour of your building—even before you build it? Now you can, with our detailed 3D walkthroughs. At CamilleriGD, we develop 3D walkthroughs that display architectural 3D models in the right proportion and scale, along with life-like textures, materials, colors and finishes.
