There´s a check list of information you need to have from your client, the link
should be in this mail for you to download, most important things are obviously
CAD Files, Logos, Address, Renders, Brochures, website and all visual
references, the more you have, the easier will be for you to develop an app
that meets the requirements of your client and more important, useful for a
long term period.
The Administration Panel
inspecting our administration panel, you can access it via https://admin.hauzd.com/ using your hauzd account, there you will have
all your management tools for your project, you can create your project, edit
information and get you app keys, add collaborators, edit pricing list and unit
status, see all traffic statistics for your finished and published app and
manage your licensing info and payments.
Working with the Editor
have installed and you´re logged with Hauzd Edit App, you can start working in
the projects you have already created in the admin page, you will have 2
windows, The Log windows where you can see a feedback about your imported
assets and processes such as light bake and build statistics, if there is any
issue importing an asset, this is where you will check exactly what is causing
“Architecture” Window is where you will configure all your app, drag and drop
your scenes, assets, images and preview it in available devices using button
In order to use your files and scenes in our engine, they must meet our
requirements, first of all, the geometry must be optimized correctly using low
poly techniques, unlike other rendering workflows, our app will run a realtime
rendering process, and you, as a 3d developer, need to make sure your app will
run smoothly in all available devices.
We will open our example project and see how you can benchmark your scene, you
need to consider 3 pillars when you are in the 3d production process:
- The amount
of objects must be less than 500.
- The amount of Tris must be between 150.000 to 250.000 but avoid using more than
- The materials must be grouped in multi/sub materials and the maps should be
texture atlas with a 2048x2048 maximum size.
We will learn more about this production process in the next tutorials, or you
can get right into it using our our helpdesk to find all videos and
Hauzd engine can handle big masterplans, floorplans, keyplans and units with
thousands of polys without any problem. But consider that each scene will add
up to your package size, therefore, bigger download times and more storage
space needed to host the app.
Baking the Lights
To achieve a great visual quality, our engine needs to bake
all the lighting info, you´ll need to create a separate UV channel in your 3d
objects and run the command “bake”, after the process is done, you´ll notice a
great improvement in your scene.
You can add
more elements such as image renders, measurements, map interest points, divide
your map into zones, aerial view and more.
To make your app a breathing selling machine, you will need to customize your
unit prices and availability using your admin page, this will synchronize auto matically with your application and you can add the real estate developer as
“collaborator” to edit it whenever it’s necessary.
part of the production process is to make your app live.
Right now you are most likely in your 30 days trial. You can use this time to learn and use our engine, get to know all features and get ready to present to your client.
In order to publish your project, you´ll need to get the subscription. And when you are done with the production process, its time to publish!.
With one click the hauzd cloud will prepare all the assets for all different platforms and devices. When this process is finished, you'll receive your unique project's link that you can deliver to your client. Anyone from anywhere can access this link on any available device.
Creating your first project is as simple as it sounds, we will get more
technical in the next videos and explain more detailed every step of the
process, so get ready to impress your clients with the ultimate 3d sales
solution for real estate!.
See you in the next videos!.
