dallas_tower.jpgDesignBuilder visualisation generates stunning realistically rendered images with the absolute minimum of effort on your part.  Rendered images can be obtained at any stage of the model creation process simply by clicking on the Visualisation tab.

The underlying DesignBuilder model contains all the necessary information on building geometry, construction and materials and each material has a photorealistic texture associated with it.

Feature highlights are:

  • Realistically rendered images in a fast OpenGL screen with shading.

  • Explore the model using simple orbit, zoom, pan or window view controls and seamlessly switch to walk-through function which provides full control.

  • Solar shading analysis for any time of day and any day of the year.

  • Colour-coded layout images show zone activites (usage).

  • Cut-away sections.
  • Glazing is transparent at multiple levels.
  • Software antialiasing provides pin sharp lines.

  • AVI movies of solar shading and scene orbit automatically generated.

  • Still images can be exported in bmp, jpg, tiff, png, gif formats.

  • Export to standard output reports for graphic description of model.  

  • Export the model in 3-D DXF format for further visualisation.
