Fun Spot utilizes 3D visualization to create the most unique and custom-designed park for its customers. The process allows the designer to visually see the concept and alter each aspect until they achieve the ideal design. Once the designer is satisifed with the appearance, the renderings are shown to the customer to help them visualize how the final product will look. Additional revisions to the 3D design are made based on feedback from the customer. Following final approval of the design by the customer, Fun Spot begins production.
The time length of the 3D rendering process depends on the customer. "If we are doing only color renderings for a client in an effort to help him/her visualize the different color combinations and help him/her make a final selection, we start showing 3D renderings to the customer same day," says Fun Spot graphic designer and website administrator Vipin Singh. "It depends on the customer as to how much time they take to make a final decision." Some customers finalize colors with the first set of renderings, while others may take a few weeks to select a final color scheme. To assist in the decision-making, Fun Spot designers can work with the customer's recommendations to provide different color sets for review.
If a 3D rendering is needed for the entire facility to include the trampoline court colors, as well as a design of all non-trampoline areas such as check-in area, party rooms, washrooms, etc, the 3D project can require more than a month to complete. An example of an extended design is with Air Trampoline Sports. The 3D renderings that Fun Spot designers provide appear much more realistic than standard designs. A customer can analyze a trampoline court, but cannot visualize a trampoline court based on standard engineered drawings. "I think 3D visualization enhances the whole experience in a great way. Customers know exactly what they are getting. They have already visualized how their court color will look in practical life and how this color will complement other surrounding elements," explains Singh.
Through 3D rendering, customers can visualize which colors look best with other colors and how their non-trampoline area will appear. They can also check multiple paint color options and other elements to decorate the facility. If a customer does not like a combination or a feature, they can look at other selections, an option that is not available after all components have been installed. Fun Spot is the only manufacturer to provide such a high volume of color options for pads and mats.
3D visualization capabilities allow Fun Spot designers to receive firsthand feedback from customers in an effort to meet their exact vision and desire for their trampoline park.
