How to visualize and modify house design before it’s built?

What do we do when we want to design/choose our home’s furniture, colour, tiles etc?
Visit other’s homes, and if we like the paint and furniture of their home, order the same for ourselves. The respective vendors of that material will visit your home to provide the cost estimate and measurements. Then the home will get painted and furnished. This is not the end of story.

What if we don’t like the colors or furniture after fixing it? Opps!!! Same process of wasting money and time.

Can’t we create a fully virtual system which allows us to paint our home, and choose the furniture and other household items we want and place them inside our homes virtually

There are various options which can help us to achieve this. One of those is WebGL.

First get the 3D CAD design  of the home, convert it to WebGL(a html file with javascript) and render it into the browser. Inside WebGL file, we can put camera and the camera can be controlled using mouse and keyboard.

How sample model looks like in browser?
Sample 3D model looks like this. Using mouse and keyboard controls we can walk inside the house and also get 360 angle view.

What we can do with this?
1. Roam inside the house virtually.
2. Chose any part and edit its attributes.

For example, I want to change the color of that wall. Chose the wall, select available colors, experiment with various colors and fix with whichever design you like.

3. Furniture Design
Choose from the available furniture, place it wherever you want it, resize, move it. Confirm it once we done with our choice.

4. Get the cost estimation with one click
The best part is that we don’t have to visit anywhere. Just make your choices and submit them. The vendor will browse the model at their place and measure the area and estimate the required materials like amount of color required to paint the wall. Same way the size of sofa set will be easily retrieved. Now vendor can provide the estimate cost and based on that cost we can take decision on placing the order or change some scheme to adjust the cost.

5. Using VR(Virtual Reality) we can even experience the realistic view of home
And all of this can be done with just one computer, in your own house.This can turn into a huge time saver. This is only an example of a house but the same concept can be implemented in many areas.
