We work with some amazing 3D clients, here’s what they have to say
Lea Bridge is an important project for us and the bid was one we really wanted to win. We decided we wanted to help the Council visualise the scheme and how it would evolve. There is no better way than animation and Hobs 3D helped us create one of the final projects and a crucial one showing the construction phasing. It’s something we knew Hobs 3D could do and do really well. From the start, we agreed timescales and ways of communicating; it is emotive to different parts of the team for different reasons and we managed to keep everyone on the same path to ensure that we could include two great animations in our bid.

We were looking to create a high quality CGI of our scheme to support our planning application and as Hobs had been highly recommended we approached them with the opportunity. They were very easy to deal with and immediately understood what we were looking for. From the façade details to the landscaping the end product perfectly displayed the design intent and really brought the scheme to life. We would have no second thoughts of using Hobs again.

The simple answer to your question is – excellent and use them! We have been working with HOBS for a number of years and specifically their 3D team over the past 4 years. I have always found them very professional, attentive to every detail, always offering new ideas and solutions even when we are unsure what we want! They have provided us with 3D printed models, AR products and VR products all of which have been both excellent value and very high quality. I would say that the VR model and immersive experience they developed for us inside the F35 fighter jet hanger and workshop that we are delivering for the RAF and USAF was exceptional. The level of service we received from the HOBS 3D team in London to develop, produce and then commission and test was again excellent and the feedback was so much more than expected. They have also produced a VR model and impressive experience for the new Dreadnaught submarine facility in Barrow and this has been used by the MOD and Navy Command to review the proposed facility, review security concerns and engage local stakeholders including the Planning Committees. Again the support from HOBS 3D to develop the model, features, functionality and the hardware to use the VR was excellent and they held our hand all the way. You don’t need to be a 3D ninja to work with this team they worry about all of that for you and keep it simple to understand and use. Regarding cost we found them very competitive and never felt we over paid and they under performed. Project Management and keeping us informed with progress was excellent and if we did have any concerns then they were sorted immediately.

It’s exciting to be able to harness the very latest VR and 3D technology to unlock the full potential of community spaces. It has allowed residents to be really involved in the design process, and has given them a sense of ownership as well as the opportunity to learn new skills in a hi-tech environment.

Hobs created the 3D print which sits on top of the digital screens, working with Digital Urban to process the 3D data and create a seamless model which works in harmony with the digital content beneath the screens. We are delighted with the outcome.

As a publisher at the heart of the latest technological advancements in the video games industry, we really wanted to showcase another innovative technology, alongside one of the most powerful images associated with Ancient Egypt – our new in-game setting in Assassin’s Creed Origins. The final result is a stunning replica of a sarcophagus, while adding a fun, gaming twist to the famous design.

Their various innovative 3D services are helping improve the built environment in the region.

In this competitive environment the model provided us with confidence throughout the process. It formed an excellent focal point at all client engagement meetings. Hobs were on-hand as part of the delivery team and worked around the clock to deliver, against particularly tight time constraints. We were extremely pleased with the result.
