3D Animation

About this Process

This animation showcases what can be done with the engineering models that are generated. 

To achieve this animation the 3D Microstation the CAD file was imported into a piece of software called Blender 2.80. All animations were saved as image sequences (15600 in total) and were imported into HitFilm Pro and assembled into one video. In HitFilm all annotations, and foreground information were added and animated, some made in separate 2D vector graphics software – Affinity Designer.

3D Modelling and Rendering

About this Process

This example of the 3D modelling process was started in Microstation where proposed site with surrounding equipment was modelled. The whole site was imported to Blender along with the buildings previously converted from Revit. All the models were relocated, scaled to match proposed site layout and grouped by purpose and material properties. After that, the topology of all the models had to be corrected as they were converted from 3D CAD to 3D CGI software. The next step was to unwrap all of the models so textures would be applied correctly and setting up the materials. The last step was to prepare scene lighting and placing virtual cameras for renders to be carried out. Renders were done in Full HD and 4K resolutions in Cycles render engine. Post-processing of all rendered PNGs were conducted in Affinity Designer where colour and contrast correction was applied.
