Getting a 3D Pool design has numerous advantages. One, the ability to visualize the pool in your own backyard with your existing landscape. Next the ability to make huge changes in a matter of seconds is helpful the homeowner and pool builder. Lastly the ability to help figure out exact cost of materials and keep your project under budget.
Pool design conception
The 3d software makes the designing stage of a pool relatively easy. The homeowner can have as much input or as little input in this stage. The results will still have a 3d view of the property that the homeowner can make changes to then. The software allows the ability to see the proportion of the pool to the backyard. Also how much space is needed for the fence, and how far you want the pool from the house. The software makes it easy to see what landscaping to save and what landscaping won’t fit with the new pool. Furthermore adding accessories like a basketball hoop, slide, or diving board is easy to visualize. The location is easy to find as you can see for example the slide in multiple locations.
Ability to change on the fly
When the pool is being built the homeowner sometimes wants to make a quick change. The builder will know this change is not logical, but its hard to communicate this objection. With the software, the builder can show the problem with the change, or can easily change the plans to let the installers continue the process of building the pool. This can be very useful when placing the hot tub, or changing the layout of the concrete deck (patio).
The pool software allows the exact measurements of certain materials to be calculated. For example how much back fill will be needed for a 20×40 pool can be calculated. Or how much soil will be excavated, and how much your backyard could use to level your yard. Another example would be when laying out where the concrete goes. Sometimes the homeowner will ask for the patio to be bigger. Sometime on how much “bigger” is dependent on cost. This size can be show visually, while also communicating the exact increase of cost if deciding on that size.
Our process for designing your backyard
First, we will go over your project via in person consultation, on the phone, Skype, or however you would like discuss your goals. After understanding the desired result, we will offer some suggestions and go over our process in more detail. If in person, due to Covid, we will require a mask from you and we will be fully masked too.
Next, We will take measurements and elevations of the property (and ask for a survey if you have one). If you are in a remote location, we can get pretty accurate measurements from GIS and satellites. We then start by building the property on our 3D program. After the residence layout is established we work on building the 3D house model and placing windows, doors, etc in accurate potions. From there we then work on the proposed parts of the project, IE swimming pool, cabana, sauna, tanning ledge, yoga deck, etc.
Lastly, we will take our 3D design and we make a presentation. Each presentation is tailored for the individual client, but usually it includes some overhead 3D rendering pictures, along with some construction layout pictures. We will go over the general scope from overhead shots, and will work our way into detailed close up shots and go over some of the intricate details of the project. Along with the pictures, and construction drawings, we will have a you-tube 360 degree video walk-through. We can also do Virtual Reality walkthroughs and/or give control of our computer so you can zoom in/out, and move freely through your project. Due to covid, we can also do these presentation remotely through zoom or teamviewer.
3D design anywhere
We can design in Cincinnati, Kentucky, Indiana, or remotely anywhere in the world.
If we design remotely, we will need A LOT of pictures from you. It is also very helpful to have a house survey, but if not we can use GIS and satellite images to get a close representation of your house layout. The presentation will be via Youtube and a screenshare video session where we will go over the 3D renderings. We are also more the happy to mail out any size (AC, AD, AE) drawings to anywhere in the world. We can also make and sell a 3D plastic model of your presentation.
