Have been for several years (approx. 17-18 years) I deal with architectural modeling tasks and visualisations, interior design tasks with related visualizations, drawings and pre-production works (drafting - fabrication/shop drawings for manufacturing of furnitures and other inrerior design elements) and with product modeling and visualisation tasks.
The large part of my works modeled with 3DSmax, Modo, Blender, SketchUp Pro or SolidWorks softwares and rendered with Vray, Thea Render, KeyShot or PhotoWorks (the rendering module of Solidworks).
Then I prepare the post-production works with Photoshop.
I prepare my product modeling and rendering tasks typically on two ways:
- If the visualization conceptual only: 3DSmax/Modo/Blender/SketchUp Pro + Vray/Thea Studio/KeyShot + Photoshop (if neccesary)
- If we have exact sizes, shapes, surfaces and/or material usage: SolidWorks 2014 + PhotoView 360/KeyShot + Photoshop
I create my product animation tasks with the 3dsmax software or with the Motion Study animation module of SolidWorks.
I use the AutoCAD software also on a daily basis, largely for technical and manufacturing base drawings.
I can even receive, open and manage ArchiCAD, VectorWorks, Revit and Autodesk Inventor files.
(I not use these softwares on a daily basis, so I have a lower level of experience in their use)
I'm a wood and furniture industrial engineer.
The computergraphics is my work and my hobby also.
I started the 3D modeling and visualization just as a hobby first.
Later, I began to use it for my interior design works (mainly unique furnishing tasks). Subsequently, this was extended to the architectural and product visualizations and I began to deal with animation also.
I got all my skills as an autodidact.
