What is 3D visualization?

3D visualization is the process of creating renderings and virtual models to explore, review, and envision 3D designs. Architects can create interactive experiences to show owners and potential buyers what the design will look like. Film and game designers use it to create cinematics and immersive virtual reality experiences. And civil engineers can visualize infrastructure projects to conceptualize bids and win work.
