My Assignment

Coordinate with a team to develop a set of 3D renderings for Flowserve’s new facility in Pasadena, Texas. I was provided with the site plan and elevation plans for the building. My responsibility was to bring the construction drawings to life for marketing, fundraising and planning purposes.

The Finished Renderings

How do I make my renderings?


Create a 3D model in SketchUp from the construction plans. Plans are submitted in AutoCAD dwg files or pdf for me to use.


Render the model using rendering software. The software uses texture and material definitions I have provided in the model to create a photorealistic image.


Finish the image in Photoshop. The rendered image is almost done, but it still needs to be completed in Photoshop for the final touches.
