Saving time on archviz projects
While the ability to create a standalone project viewer is Van Bommel’s number one Twinmotion feature, he also highlights many others that make his life easier. “The materials, object replacer, weather simulation, and paths for traffic are some of my favorites,” he says.
Van Bommel is often asked, “What will my design look like in reality?” To answer this accurately, he needs a method of working that enables him to quickly make adjustments and variations to designs. “Twinmotion helps me with this because I can quickly and easily exchange, adapt, and combine multiple designs and 3D models,” he explains.
When they get to see their designs in full real-time immersion, reactions from clients are telling. “My clients are very enthusiastic about this way of presenting,” says Van Bommel. “Especially about the clarity and recognizability of future situations in public space. They are equally enthusiastic about the user-friendliness of navigating through the plan.”
The frequently asked question, "If I'm standing here and I look that way, what do I see?" can be answered quickly and effectively. “My clients find communication with stakeholders clearer, simpler—and sometimes objections have even disappeared,” says Van Bommel. “After experiencing this type of presentation, there’s often a follow-up assignment for new projects.”
