When architects bid on a contract for a new client, much of what determines whether they win the job depends on how realistic their design looks—and how quickly they can get it in.
By using grid technology coupled with digital rendering, architects from the company of Art & Build can now submit their designs at a fraction of the time that would be required on a local PC. Developed by Mental Images, and ICT experts from FPMs and CETIC, the technology can reduce the time dedicated to rendering an image by 40 percent. It can reduce the cost by a similar amount, say its creators.
You can see more at the BEinGRID booth at ICT 2008 event in Lyon, France, on 25-27 November.
