3D Modeling process steps to rendering



This tutorial is for basic idea to show the 3D Modeling process steps – from modeling to rendering. Although we can have many various ways to make the 3D modeling and rendering for 3D Product, below is one of example to show the key procedures how to make 3D water mug from Image Reference to Final 3D rendering image. Hope this helps.

5 Steps to Make 3D Product Modeling and Rendering for Beginners

1. 3D Modeling

According to Wikipedia, 3D modeling is the process of developing a mathematical coordinate-based representation of any surface of an object (inanimate or living) in three dimensions via specialized software. The 3D models are used for a variety of mediums including movie industry, game industry, engineering, architectures, commercial advertising, and 3D printing as well. We can get the 3D model by using 3D scanning technology. In this example, we use the software to build the 3D model and for 3D rendering, the rendering images can be use for commercial use, including online marketing.

2. Modify UVW Map

UVW mapping is the process to positioning the graphics, texture on 3D model. In the process of 3D modeling, the 3D model have not the data how the  graphics putting on the 3D model. Therefore, we need “UVW mapping” to address the graphics texture into good position, scale and orientation.

3. Add Texture and Material

This step is different  from “UVW mapping”, UVW mapping the focus on the “good position” of graphics on 3D model, in this step, it is going to put graphic, color, texture, finishing into 3D model. In the step, it is define that the 3D model is plastic or metal, or glass, or wood etc. When there will be some graphic, logo on model, we need to create a file for color mapping.

4. Scene setup with lighting

After you have 3D model, and putting the color , texture, material into 3D model, you can setup a scene to rendering a image. The step will including to setup camera view, light setting, and environment scene setting.

5. Computer Processing Rendering

This isthe final step, that let the computer process. After setting up the previous 4 steps, the computer processing rendering can be started, and then get the final image.

Bottom Line

These steps give the basic idea how to 3D rendering be created. There maybe some simplified ways to create Product rendering in future, but the critical steps are required to have a 3D model, add color/texture/finishing on it, and setup a environment to render it.
