Using Visualization in Support of RFP’s

RFP Visualization can help separate your submitted proposal from the competition by showing you have a full understanding of the project details and the final results. That you took the extra effort to communicate with high quality 3D visuals on a proposal demonstrates the projects importance to your firm, and will almost certainly be viewed as a positive by the decision committee.



3D scan to 3D model

Using 3D scans (point cloud) as a development template, we have the ability to create accurate 3D models for visualization and simulations. This can be extremely useful in showing existing versus proposed conditions as in the example above. 3D modeling is also helpful in finding potential design and clearance issues in advance of construction.




Visual Aesthetics / Before-After

Using engineered 3D modeling and the real-world environment in unity to render realistic post construction visualizations. Multiple alternatives and mitigation measures can be shown true to scale in a photo-realistic setting. Our methods ensure accurate results and documentation. Click on photo to enlarge.

Need Custom Illustrations or Icons?

We can take a concept or idea and produce hand-drawn illustrations and icons that are far more effective and respected than stock photos and clip art. Give your marketing a classy upgrade the whole company will be proud of!



Visualize Print Using 3D!

We are using 3D to help clients show off design concepts and final artwork as it would look after print production before it ever hits the presses! This application of 3D allows clients to see specific design elements that are very difficult, if not impossible to replicate on a paper or digital proof such as spot varnishes/UV, embossing, foil stamping, custom die cutting, etc. We use the exact specifications so you get an accurate representation of the finished piece. Click on photo to enlarge.

Client Reviews

“I had the pleasure of working with Ken Cummings of Real3D Places for a proposal that the firm was pursuing with Orange County Sanitation District. Ken’s work on the 3D visualization of the Seal Beach Pump Station was amazing. Ken was available to our team via telephone even outside of typical working hours. The countless hours that he dedicated in preparing the 3D model was very much appreciated. The finished product was impressive and exceeded my expectations. For our next 3D visualization assignment, Real3D Places is our vendor of choice.”

“R3DP is absolutely the place you want to turn to for head turning artwork and professional design. I now have had 3 logos created for my music schools and another business by R3DP, and every time the results far exceeded my expectations. When people see my logo they remember it – because they want to keep looking at it!. R3DP is professional, polite, knowledgeable, and very passionate about their work. I just gave them the name of my new company, and what they came up with blew me away! The entire concept and artwork are nothing short of stunning. People will notice and remember your company name and logo. If you are looking for great branding, motion 3D, etc, I highly recommend you give R3DP a call!”

“R3DP has been amazing to work with!! I gave them our current business logo without many ideas, just knew it needed to be changed for people to remember our logo and what they produced was far beyond my expectations! They got together several ideas and graphics for me to choose from, and if I wanted any idea/ graphic changed or combined, they did it in a very timely manner. The final product was incredible!! They are professional, knowledgeable and communication is top notch and would highly recommend R3DP to everyone I know!”
