CAD is often used by product or industrial designers to create renderings and two-dimensional vector-based drawings of models. CAD drawings demonstrate the size, appearance, texture and material of products that have yet to be manufactured. CAD drawings are used to demonstrate how an object is constructed and the placement of its component parts. CAD software offers better visualization of the design, improves accuracy and eliminates error during the manufacturing process.
2D computer graphics are digital images that are computer-based. They consist of 2D geometrical models, such as image compositions, pixel art, digital art, photographs and text. 2D graphics are used in printing and drawing.
There are two kinds of 2D computer graphics – raster and vector graphics. Raster graphics are composed of arrays of pixels. Each pixel has different colour or shade. They are edited on the pixel level and are used on most old computer and video games, graphing calculator games, and many mobile phone games. Vector graphics are composed of paths. Paths are used to describe the images. Vector graphics are mainly used on photographic images.
3Dimensions ( 3D)
3D stands for 3 dimensional. When units of inches are cubed, we get the 3D measurement of volume. 3D is a mathematical representation of any 3D object.
3D Shapes – 3D is anything that has mass and occupies air space. You cannot place an object and place another object in the same place, because the objects are 3D and require space. We live in a 3D world – human beings, trees, houses – all have 3D shapes. In q world of 3 dimensions, you can move forward, backward, right, left and even up or down.
3D Drawings – A 3D drawing focuses on depth and space. 3D art looks at the depth and sculpture or the drawing. Examples of 3D art include animation, sculpting and metal work. The visual effect of a 3D drawing looks as if it has jumped off the page.
3D design represents physical space and materials. The same design principles addressed in 2D, like unity and balance are articulated along with visual elements like mass, volume, colour, light,, plane, form, line and texture. They are explored through addition, subtraction or fabrication. Examples of 3-D design approaches include figurative or non-figurative sculpture, architectural models, metal work, ceramics, fashion and jewellery etc.
Difference between 2D and 3D
|It is flat and has only 2 dimensions – length and breadth||It has real shapes and 3 dimensions – length, breadth and height|
|Focus is limited to balance and symmetry||Focus is on space and depth|
|2 D is used to create flat digital images||3D is used to create computers models of an object|
|No movement or animation||Movements and animated effects can be added|
|They allow more direct control of the image and are easier to change with relatively simple software packages.||3D models are not so easy to change because it requires specific 3D modelling skills and more complex and powerful 3D model software.|
|2 dimensions can be represented on flat surface||The 3rd dimension is only a simulated effect that can fool the brain|
|Object can be viewed only from one angle||Object can be rotated and viewed from all angles|
|Every possible clash or interference cannot be viewed in 2D||All details of possible clashes can be viewed and avoided|
|Laymen cannot understand technical engineering drawings||There is no need to have special knowledge of drawings – real images are depicted.|
The cutting-edge of 3D Conversion
3D is a leap from 2D. It allows you to walk through architectural structures, to participate in stories and events. You can turn the handle of your new home which is under construction and walk through the passages and verandas. You can suggest a change or modification in advance. You can turn a handbag around, open its chains and see it from all sides, as if you are actually handling it; it helps you to decide whether or not to buy a product. Advertisements were never better and more effective, realistic and impactful.
In modern times the three-dimensional technology is a must-have design tool. Migrating from 2D to 3D is like seeing technology in action. The use of 3D is no longer restricted to engineers, architects automotive and aerospace manufacturers but is increasing in mainstream manufacturers as well. 3D design technology can reinvigorate productivity, sharpen competitive edge, earn even greater return on investment in product design, and benefit many other aspects of manufacturing. 3D software has paved the way for faster growth and innovation.
Why outsource 2D to 3D Conversion services?
When you have to play in the market, you must have confidence at the outset. This confidence will come automatically when you offer the best. Why lag behind in technological matters while the world marches ahead? Conversion of data from 2D to 3D requires not only expertise but strong and long experience. Outsourcing 2D to 3D conversion takes a lot of load off your shoulders and you can rest assured that your project is in best hands. Experts and professionals can give you magical results that will take years for you to achieve. Software for the process is quite expensive; moreover, new software and versions keep coming up in the market every now and then and it is not practical or feasible to purchase software and employ personnel just for the purpose of advertising, marketing and campaigning. The wisest option is to select a trustworthy, reliable outsourcing partner.
