I run a non profit (the Michigan Urban Farming Initiative) that owns a building that we are converting into a community resource center. The building is a part of our overall campus and is the visual centerpiece of our space. We are currently working on a very detailed 3D campus map that fits into a larger neighborhood 3D master plan - here’s a few screenshots to give you a sense of what’s on the campus and what we’re working on:
Here’s a photo of the building itself:
I’ve modeled all of the exterior bricks of the structure and the cornice(s) as you can see here:
Note that the screenshot of the model includes the brick wall of the basement, which is below grade and is not visible in the real world photo of the structure.
Given the importance of the mural on capturing the overall building aesthetic, I need to figure out a way to get that mural to be represented accurately(ish) and professionally. How do I do this?
Here’s a link to the model itself: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1hj0gbwev5087uBigeQZIWUqDRnvP9AYt/view?usp=sharing
Please note that I haven’t included the mortar (the cement like stuff that keeps the bricks together) yet, which is 1/2 inch in from the outermost faces of the building. For a majority of the building, there is no paint on the mortar, so the actual mural is a series of several hundred brick sized faces with gaps between them. There is a part of the building (on the far right side in the photo) that has a different kind of brick, on which the mortar is flush w the exterior face of the brick that has paint on it.
I am ultimately hoping to load the building into SketchFab similar to how I was able to do for this house which is located right near our campus): https://sketchfab.com/models/894d866e3b634b698cbeb9983fb46be3
The goal being to create an interactive model that can potentially be used for people to take virtual tours of our conceptual rehabbed community center.
Any suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated
