Not all industries offer products and services that are easy to understand. And when it comes to highly technical and potentially confusing ideas and proposals, the combustion industry is almost unbeatable. It can be incredibly difficult to concisely break down exactly how a proposed product or facility will work in real time, making it hard for potential customers and investors to make the decision to invest time or money. That’s where 3D visualization comes in. Instead of attempting to explain a project on paper alone, 3D visualizations and their corresponding animations can help illustrate the processes and products in real time.
What is 3D visualization?
The idea of 3D visualization is a relatively simple one that isn’t necessarily new. People have been creating physical miniature models of projects to help clients visualize the finished product for a long time. The way in which 3D visualization is used in the combustion industry and the potential its animations provide, however, is new. It’s an innovative and modern application of a traditional idea that takes a 3D render of a project, be it a building or a part, and adds in animations that illustrate how a particular process would work.
Illustrating Problems and Solutions
One major benefit that utilizing 3D animation has is the way in which problems and solutions can each be illustrated and explained in such a way that even someone with little knowledge of the industry can understand. Perhaps there’s a problem somewhere in a facility that a specific change would fix, for example, but no one is ready to commit to the solution because they don’t fully understand the problem itself. A 3D animation can illustrate the problem in a way that is easy to understand simply by watching the technical animation. The solution can be shown in much the same way, making problem solving easier for everyone involved.
Demonstrate a Product or Service’s Worth
Similar to the application described above, 3D illustration and animation can also make showcasing specific products and services easy. Instead of a plan laid out on paper that details the impact a particular service would have, an illustration or animation shows potential clients exactly how your product works. This allows them to better envision the benefits of utilizing the product or service in their own facility or industry, making the process much simpler and saving time and effort all around.
Make Marketing and Training Easy
Marketing can be difficult in the combustion energy industry. It’s fairly common for a service or product to make use of detailed and complex processes, for example, which can make marketing a complicated endeavor. Technical illustration and animation, however, takes the hard work out of the equation by producing something clients can really hold onto. The same holds true for training. While technical knowledge is vital, 3D creative media can help make imparting that knowledge a bit easier. Seeing exactly how something works makes memorizing the process simple.
