Zebra Imaging 3D Architectural Holograms

Zebra holograms dramatically reduce time to certainty. For architecture, engineering & construction (AEC) projects, it is important to attractively and accurately present 3D form and function over iterative reviews. Holograms can be rendered from the same 3D digital design and CAD models that most AEC clients already produce for 2D renderings and animated fly-throughs.

The turnaround production time is fast and the model size, color, quality, and potential for animation are user-controlled parameters. The cost of a hologram is comparable to physical models produced at the same size. They are robust, easy to handle, and easy to transport and send. Updates and multiple copies can be easily produced and sent out to stakeholders at a single location or multiple locations. Holograms can be easily archived as physical documentation.

The presentation of AEC plans and designs is often as important as the plans and designs themselves. An impressive and accurate model can make the difference between winning and losing a contract. Furthermore, a detailed and accurate model for review during the design phase can mean the difference between detecting or missing mistakes early in the process. The ease of comprehension also make holograms well-suited for presentations to the public.

Because Zebra holograms are true-3D, multiple viewers can see the model from their own viewpoints encircling 360° around the model. In other words, viewers can walk around a Zebra hologram to observe and comprehend the model in the same intuitive manner that they observe real objects in real life.
