Renderbee pioneers 3D architectural virtualization in the Philippines

“Architectural Rendering” in the past was all about making 2D images or animation that can illustrate architectural design. Creating these on AutoCAD or traditional blueprints take time and limit what the viewer can see and experience from the proposed design. However, architectural virtualization has changed all that.
