Creating a 3D Mock-up of Your Sign

What is a 3D Mock-up, and why do we use them?

During the design process we create a 3D image to better represent what your finished product will look like. we can create a few different variations and angles to ensure you are happy with your design.

The process for creating a mock-up begins in Adobe Illustrator where we separate the vector file into multiple layers. Each layer will be reformatted into a .dwg file and extruded into SolidWorks in order to give it the three dimensional shape as well as the desired thickness of each piece. The layers are then placed together and set at the desired distances from each other in order to bring life to the artwork.

At times a mock-up may change in a significant way as to give a wider range of artistic representation and capabilities.

3D Mockups are what set ShieldCo custom metal signage apart from other sign companies. These renderings give you confidence in what you’re ordering and that it matches your vision. We are happy to take this step so that we are all on the same page.

This service allows us to work seamlessly with companies anywhere in the world. When working with your designer, you will talk through the location of where your sign will be installed so we can give you as accurate a representation as possible.

Whether you’re ordering a logo sign, office signage, outdoor signage, or a custom metal art piece, we can create a 3D rendering to show you exactly how the finished product will look.
