Five Recommeded Activities for Architectural 3D Rendering Designers

When not at work, what activities can architectural 3D rendering designers do for both leisure and self-development? Let’s first explore the work of a 3D rendering designer. A 3D renderer’s main job is to create three dimensional visuals or animations of an architect’s or an interior designer’s ideas. They also make realistic visualizations of property developments.

In a nutshell, the main job of architectural 3D rendering designers is to bring an architecture, interior design, or real estate masterpiece closer to reality. 3D architectural rendering is being widely used in marketing and presentation. It has superseded the role of 2D CAD models, sketches, and paintings in project presentation. Architectural 3D rendering has definitely changed the way professionals in the architecture and real estate industry market their services and development projects today.

The work of an architectural 3D rendering designer requires drafting knowledge and skill, knowledge in architecture and interior design, and a great deal of patience and creativity. A 3D renderers must have the ability to focus at the task at hand and pay strong attention to details. They take into account all the elements of an architect’s or an interior designer’s work, from the texture, to lighting, down to the colors.

We list down activities for architectural 3D rendering professionals to help improve focus, enhance creativity, and further develop an eye for detail.

1. Biking, walking, or hiking

Biking or walking may not be related to arts, but both help improve focus and creativity. An article published in Medical News Today mentions that walking can actually boost creative thinking.  According to the article, Stanford University researchers have found that people’s creativity increased by 60% while walking.

Exercise, particularly biking, has also been found to boost creativity. Another interesting study mentioned in an NY Daily News article notes that cycling’s creativity-enhancing benefits will work for those who already exercise regularly.  It may backfire if the architectural 3D rendering designer has a sedentary lifestyle because intense activities like cycling can be stressful enough to impair one’s ability to concentrate.

An creativity-boosting alternative for inactive designers is hiking. Immersion in nature plus light exercise can enhance mood and creativity.

So instead of reaching for another cup of coffee, why not go for a walk or a 30-minute biking exercise?

2. Photography

Photography is both an art and science. Capturing images to express emotions or to convey messages helps develop the designer’s creative skills. Much like architectural 3D rendering, photography also requires focus and attention to details.

3. Film

Creating films is both an art and a technical skill. Part of an architectural 3D rendering designer’s job is creating animations. Animations and films both tell a story. Films enhance that creative ability to arrange scenes into a logical and creative sequence of events.

4. Painting

Both painting and architectural 3D rendering require manual dexterity. Your career in this field begins from your ability to visualize and to execute your vision with manual dexterity. You use your hands to draw. Painting enhances your creativity and your ability to pay close attention to detail as you exercise your ability to create something beautiful from scratch. Like architectural 3D rendering, painting allows you to practice manipulating colors, textures, and dimensions.

5. Travel

Travel is more than just running away from work. Traveling stimulates the mind and the senses. Exposure to new cultures and surroundings can instantly give you an energy boost and send you a needed dose of creative inspiration. Architectural 3D rendering can be a highly technical and routine desk job. In this line of work, it’s easy to get lost in your  project and stay on your desk for more than 12 hours a day. You need to get off your desk to replenish your creative reserves.

Make it a point to plan a vacation at least twice a year. Trust us, taking a vacation can actually help boost your career.
