Architectural rendering is the process of creating two-dimensional and three-dimensional images of a proposed architectural design. The goal of architectural rendering is to illustrate lifelike experiences of how a space or building will look like before they have been built. Using architectural rendering software can lead to more sophisticated and eye-popping designs that represent design intent accurately before any physical work on a project begins.
There are three main benefits of using 3D rendering software for architecture projects:
Like the inside of an office building or home, many details including flooring, furnishings and lighting contribute to a space. Interior renderings offer a perspective on what it will be like to work or live in that space.

Many considerations like light, shadowing and reflection factor into the creation of exterior renderings. These factors are important in considering how a building will relate to the environment and people around it.
