3D Modeling Saves Time and Money
A project manager has probably one of the toughest jobs out there. Not that it's physically hard, but mentally. As a 3D modeling company, we work with a number of different industries, and with a variety of people in different roles throughout those industries, so we know. There are so many different things that a project manager is responsible for that it can be mind blowing - budgets & timelines, personnel & client relationships, brainstorming & executive decisions - almost every aspect of the project, from large, over-reaching aspects to small details.

So we think it's pretty cool to be able to make their jobs a little easier.

When we were working on the Market Square project with Shorenstein, we worked very closely with the team's project managers to execute their vision for the models. And sometimes, we have to help them figure out exactly what that vision is supposed to be.

"As we're creating models, they can make adjustments along the way, so we're helping them to save time and money" Semmen says.

When the architects working on the project were initially beginning to study the exterior façade choices for the Market Square, it was very hard for them, the design team, and the project managers to make a decision based on the small paint samples and window glass samples that they were given.

The project managers asked us to help. Essentially, our task was to help the team figure out what the building was going to look like from the outside. They had seven different color and window combinations that they wanted to present to the client, but the sample sizes were so small, it was almost impossible to decide on the right combination. We were able to meet with the team, and walk away with all of the material samples that they had available.

The next step was to take all of those samples back to our in-house studio, and photograph all of it, making sure that we got the color exactly right. After we completed that, we were able to create models, and then we created color-accurate five-feet by seven-feet boards that depicted these colors... a much, much better option than the small color samples that the team originally had to work with.

We presented the client team their options, and they were able to eliminate some of them pretty easily, and were finally able to make a decision on the final color combination.

"When we work with clients, and project managers in general, we look at it as if we're there to support the design team and project managers along the way, and help them make their own design decision and test their own design options using our 3D services," says Zum co-founder Michael Semmen. "Once they get a project review back, and they don't like it, they're able to make changes easily."

The sheer number of decisions that design teams and project managers have to make on a project of that scale can be staggering. But with our 3D models, we're able to help project managers eliminate some of those choices early in the project.
