SketchUp Rendering Case Study, RSD / Total Controls

Tyrone Tucker from RSD / Total Controls recently shared his experience with ArielVision, a Render Plus rendering extension for SketchUp. Tyrone incorporates completed renderings into a browser enabled interface for his customers.


In Tyrone’s own words: I work for RSD / Total Controls. We provide parts and smarts for the HVAC and Refrigeration industry. In the Total Control division we build 508 UL listed industrial control panels and provide control systems for Building Automation. 
This includes controls for operating:
  • Air Conditioning Units
  • Fan Coils
  • VAV’s
  • Chillers
  • Boilers
  • Pumps
  • Built Up Systems, and others

The information is networked back to a head end device called a Supervisory Controller. The end user can access the system locally or remotely over the Internet with any web browser. The interface enables a view of the graphic images that I rendered. For example, below is a stacked view of a building in Los Angeles, CA. I created the model with SketchUp and renderings with ArielVision.
