3D Printing of House Plans

One of our most common questions is, How can I get a better visual of what my home will look like once it is built? We now offer our first house plan with a 3D printing option.

Today, for practical use, home builders and future home owners can actually use 3D printing technology to print out a 3D house plan model from specially prepared files.

As you can see, a three dimensional image ofHouse Plan 187-1001(left) is a helpful start for home builders to get virtual 360-degree views of your house plan, with much more detail than static images and renderings. 3D printing technology uses software files to e

ffectively convert your blueprints into an actual physical model of your home. This process allows home builders and owners to get a far better sense of the actual home to be built.

Traditional Home with Covered Porch (187-1001)

As the first in our series of house plans with 3D printing options, we selected this beautiful six bedroom home to highlight the openness of the floor plans as you walk through it. Many home owners have a tough time visualizing how floors stack on top of each other. In addition to the second floor, this home also includes a finished basement with two additional bedrooms and family area. The to-scale model allows users to quickly understand how these floors work together as a whole.

3D printing is the process of creating an object through sequential (additive) layering of materials. By using computer models developed in CAD or similar software, a 3D printer takes a digital model and converts it into a solid or physical one.

The benefits of using a 3D printer to create a physical model or replica of your future home include:

If you have a 3D printer at home, then that is a great way to start.MakerBotis perhaps the most popular manufacturer of consumer 3D printers. However, not many people have 3D printers at home yet. Fortunately, there are 3D printer services in many cities and states today. Given that this technology is in such early stages and this is the first in our series of house plans with a 3D printing option, we are offering the 3D printer version of the files at no charge when you purchase a CAD File construction package of plan 187-1001.

In theory, this could be done but we wouldnt advise it! In fact, homes have recently been built or are under development using 3D printers inAmsterdamandLos Angelesalready. These homes demonstrate the possibilities of the technology. However, they are also not very practical while also being extremely expensive. Some would say they are also not very homey.

3D printing technology is still at its very early stages think of the personal computer in the early 70s or mobile phones in the early 80s. It is not inconceivable that advances in 3D printing technology could revolutionize the way we build houses. Some potential benefits of 3D printed homes in the future could be:

3D printing could even lead to changes in our own preferences in a home design itself.

3D House and Home

Planning a new house? Visualize it in 3d here!

When it comes to creating 3D house plans and home rendering services, the team at Render 3D Quick has you covered. We offer many different services that will help you get a complete rendering of your home. To take it one step further, you can have your unique vision animated or 3D printed to create a tangible model that you can examine and present to others.

Whether you are an interior designer, builder, developer, or a homeowner, you will find our rendering services useful. By using architectural visualisation, you are able to look at your project in many different ways to help analyze problems and make decisions before construction begins.

We provide a service for rendering your planned home in 3D

The ability to examine your project inside and out in a 3D world makes flaws and other potential problems much easier to spot so that you are able to correct them now instead of later after the construction has started. This saves you time, money, and materials because you wont be fixing costly mistakes in the construction. Instead, you will be able to identify and modify your plan to prevent these mistakes.

Render 3D Quick offers a variety of services to help our clients get a complete view of their project. We take pride in our processes and our experience and offer our services at competitive rates and with quick turnaround times.

At the minimum, you should consider investing in a3D floor plan renderingfor your project. A 3D floor diagram is helpful for identifying elements like traffic flow, door and window placement, and safety elements. Its a great way to start the planning process so you can know the various sizes of the rooms, layouts, and what size furniture you can expect to need.

The 3D interior renderings are typically what designers use to walk clients through the home and show them various elements and color choices. Its a great tool for that and homeowners even find it useful to help plan a renovation project so they can show the crew that they hire just what they want.

Many people overlook theexterior of the houseor view it as less important. Seeing a sketch is often good enough for them, but they dont know what they are missing out on! By seeing a3D versionof the exterior of a home, you can analyze all the small details and design choices and see them work together in a very real way. You can get an idea of how to plan the landscaping and the driveway and how the home will look on the land. Just look at this animation of a house under construction for instance:

Modern House Plans

Modern house plans offer clean lines, simple proportions, open layouts and abundant natural light, and are descendants of the International style of architecture, which developed in the 1920s. Flat or shallow-pitched roofs, large expanses of glass, strong connections to outdoor space, and spare, unornamented walls are characteristics of Modern house plans. The lot is often incorporated into the Modern style home, turning outdoor space into alfresco living rooms. To see additional Modern style house plans try our advanced floor plan search.

We make the task of choosing affordable house plans a lot easier by showing you the house plans in 3D. Being able to see what the floor plan will look like can really help you in the decision process. These color images show what each plan will look like when the house is built.

All of our floor plans have corresponding 3d views for almost every room. All exterior views of our affordable home plans are shown as well. Complete with landscaping, furnishings and interior dcor, these beautiful virtual images of our house plans in 3d are an indispensible feature for selecting the right affordable house plan.

Visualizing two-dimensional floor plans can be daunting and after a while all the plans look alike. To help you in visualizing house plan drawings, we invite you to scroll through our 3D views for any of our plans and picture yourself living in the home. When you need to find the right affordable house plan, one that is best for you, why not make it an enjoyable experience with the convenience of all house plans in 3d.

The solution for more space in small house plans

With our blend of design experience and construction expertise we are able to provide homeowners with well-designed, comfortable floor plans at realistic prices. Our house plan views in 3d help you, as the future homeowner, to visualize the aesthetic qualities of the home plan and, in addition, our economical detailed construction drawings make your affordable dream home possible.

But dont take our word for it. Hear from our clients and customers:

Being able to see the house plans in 3d was very helpful for me to choose the right affordable house plan. I wanted to know what I was getting. Jane B., Ohio

Finding an affordable house plan was very important since I am retired on a fixed income. With these economical house plans my builder was able to keep construction costs well within my budget. Victoria M., Florida

Our builder loves your plans, very detailed and easy to work with, and literally saved us thousands. Doug and Melinda H., Missouri

Our efficient small house plans focus on the best and most creative use of floor space, layout and design. These small floor plans live larger than their actual square footage by making very good utilization of space.

With features in our plans that allow for convenient transitioning to outdoor spaces (porches, decks, patios) our plans provide a more open, spacious feel.

In addition, these small home plans are designed according to the economical grid system layout for true cost-saving affordable construction.

During the heyday of past building booms, of easy credit and plentiful jobs, being thrifty wasnt so important. Times have certainly changed resulting in the need to revisit efficient and economical construction methods and materials. Our affordable house plans utilize the cost-effective grid system layout for all of our construction drawings. This allows the cost-conscious homeowner to achieve significant savings during their building project, thus making our affordable house plans truly easy on the pocket.Read more…

An age-in-place house plan (a home in which you live independently for the rest of your life), in order to be successful, requires a design that accommodates the inevitable physical changes which occur when the human body ages. Our homes need to provide better support for those physical and sensory changes that older adults encounter as they age. Whether you are planning a home for an aging parent or you are a member of the baby boomer generation looking ahead, start by considering various design features for your aging-in-place house plan.Read more…

Laying out my kitchen appliances and cabinets couldnt have been easier! Cabinets and appliances snap together. Its amazingly realistic – even the refrigerator and cabinet doors open and close.
