Architectural rendering is the process of creating two-dimensional and three-dimensional images of a proposed architectural design. The goal of architectural rendering is to illustrate lifelike experiences of how a space or building will look like before they have been built. Using architectural rendering software can lead to more sophisticated and eye-popping designs that represent design intent accurately before any physical work on a project begins.
Benefits of architectural rendering
There are three main benefits of using 3D rendering software for architecture projects:
Develop design ideas more accurately
Identify problems early in the development stages to reduce costs
Communicate design ideas with clients and partners
Types of architectural rendering
Like the inside of an office building or home, many details including flooring, furnishings and lighting contribute to a space. Interior renderings offer a perspective on what it will be like to work or live in that space.

Many considerations like light, shadowing and reflection factor into the creation of exterior renderings. These factors are important in considering how a building will relate to the environment and people around it.

Many companies use an aerial view render in their presentations to show a dynamic perspective that leads to better understanding of landscapes, surrounding buildings, and complete visualizations.
