3D Visualization and Rendering

Do you need high-quality 3D visualizations or 3D animations of your machines, systems or buildings? We offer you professional support! Find out more about our services here and get in touch with us.

3D Visualizer and Renderings - Software and Consulting

Get more out of your 3D data by using Cideon's 3D visualization and rendering to unleash the full potential of your designs and planning. 
Present your technical innovations and projects in breathtaking 3D quality and bring them virtually to life. You can also use realistic representations to simulate and present complex production processes and factory layouts. Everyone involved in the project and your customers will be impressed!

We will be happy to advise you on your options and use our many years of expertise to implement 3D visualizations, 3D animations and 3D interactivity directly for you.

3D Visualizations and Architectural Renderings - Discover Possibilities and Software now

Whether for customer presentations, training courses, advertising purposes or for the simulation and planning of factories and production processes - we help companies from the mechanical and plant engineering sector, factory operators and many other industries to perfectly showcase their often highly complex products and projects.

We create high-quality 3D visualizations based on 3D CAD data or professionally rework existing images. We also create realistic 3D animations of products, buildings or processes and expand these with interaction options on request. Thanks to 3D renderings and visualization, products can be presented realistically or systems and production processes can be planned realistically.

We also enable companies to make their projects virtually accessible or visitable with VR technology and offer customers and interested parties an extraordinary product experience.

Would you also like to bring your products to life and impress (potential) customers? Contact us today for an informal initial consultation! We are also happy to support you in the further project phases with training and support.


Challenges in the Visualization of 3D Data

Are you familiar with the following challenges? With the use of 3D visualizations, you can optimize your customer presentations and showcase your product in the best possible light.


Products and solutions increasingly require individual tailoring to customer needs. Meet these new challenges with visualizations – in 3D as well as 2D. Instantly respond to changing circumstances with simple and easy-to-implement variants.



Cost Efficiency

Budgets are having to be spread across an ever-increasing number of projects – and with ever-shorter implementation times. Use, for example, professional rendering to address these issues in the early stages of development. Photo-realistic images or realistic 3D animations allow you to perfectly match digital prototypes and digital twins to your needs. 


Complex Know-how

The complexity of knowledge in professional environments is continuously increasing. To efficiently share knowledge, make use of immersive learning – the combination of digital technologies, such as virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR). Convey complex content and processes using VR and avoid implementation errors by augmenting reality with digital content in advance. 

Digital Experience / Immersive Connectivity

Continuous brand presence is today no longer sufficient. Use "Digital Experience" to make brands, products and, particularly, solutions virtual and "tangible" and thereby capable of being experienced. Use gamification ideas as a guide for immersive marketing and inspire potential customers with game-like, unique concepts. 



Possibilities for 3D Visualization of Your Data

We always consider your requirements on an individual basis and in an all-round context. We work with you to develop different approaches and solutions to give your ideas and projects an even "sharper" profile. 

Visualization/3D Animation/3D Configuration

Use 3D visualizations, animations and configurators to enhance the emotional product experience while also reducing complexity – especially in advanced (technical) projects. We will be happy to support you with: 

  • - Technical animations (processes, instructions) 
  • - Visualizations in 3D (plants, buildings, advertising purposes,...) 
  • - Configurators (3D, 2D)

AR/VR/3D Interaction

Extend reality with augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR). For example, use AR to get completely new insights into existing or newly created plant and machinery. Use virtual models to practice procedures and processes. Use exploratory forms of interaction to make multi-layered processes "crystal clear". An excerpt from our portfolio: 

  • - Interactive application
  • - Multi-touch applications (desktop/mobile apps) 
  • - interactive 3D models (web), VR und AR (web) 
  • - virtual 3D exhibition booths
  • - Rendered 3D panoramas for virtual tours

Rendering/Image Optimization

Pictures say more than a thousand words – this applies all the more when presenting your planned machinery or plant in a realistic way. Use professional 3D rendering to present your ideas in the best light. Optimize existing images or videos, for example, by professional post-processing to add new ideas and designs. Find out more about our expertise in:

  • - Rendering
  • - Post-processing/Optimizing images
  • - Post-processing/Optimizing audio
  • - Post-processing/Optimizing video, compositing

Advantages of 3D Product Visualizations and Renderings

Lower Costs

Visualization and rendering save you time and money by not only accelerating product development, but also training and education along your entire value chain.

More Efficient Planning

Plan more efficiently and benefit from visualized data early on. You can then design and realize rapid (digital) prototyping and digital twins. This enables you to identify potential at an early stage and implement your ideas even more efficiently. 

Reduction of Expensive Rework

Through better planning and visualization of data, you can avoid expensive rework in the run of the project. Overall, project quality increases.

Better Products and Marketing

Improve product development and marketing. Identify optimization and improvements at an early stage using VR and AR and impress potential customers with virtual, "tangible" product benefits. 

Faster Time-to-Market

Use visualized data for a faster time-to-market. Achieve shorter development times using informative rendering and visualization and gain time over your competitors.

More Satisfied Customers

By using VR and AR, your projects can be presented in an ideal way. This allows you to create a more emotional experience for your customers and therefore make the project something they can experience.
