3D mounting video for an acoustic design ceiling made of plasterboard

Joint execution without filling simply explained as a 3D animation

In drywall construction, plasterboard ceiling systems are usually filled. For special perforated panels of an acoustic ceiling, however, there is a joint tape that is inserted with liquid adhesive. And how the mounting works for this, which steps have to be taken into account, is explained by the Animations-Maschine with the help of a 3D animated mounting video.

Working under the covers can be exhausting! Not so if the ceiling system is explained as a 3D installation video. Here plasterboard panels can be mounted overhead, screw holes filled and butt joints grouted without getting into your arms.

3D mounting video joint tape

At the beginning of the assembly animation, all the tools and products required for the special joint technology are shown. The matching 3D models were partially provided by the customer. Missing 3D models were modeled and used by the Animations-Maschine. When installing the laying of the panels, it is shown how a plasterboard panel is aligned and screwed. Supported by visual information elements such as rotating arrows with or without dimensions.

Representation of the surface textures

In the main part of the video, the plasterboard is sanded, moistened with water and the joint areas are coated with liquid adhesive. In reality, this always changes the surface texture to roughened, moistened and wetted. For this purpose, various textures were developed in the 3D animation, superimposed on one another and then shown in an animated manner. The different levels also shine through the other levels, which leads to more realism in the 3D animation.

3D assembly video - frieze tape for perforated plasterboard panels

A special frieze tape is available to quickly and effectively create a frieze on perforated plasterboard. This is glued over the existing perforated plates and closes them visibly. Optical borders or wall edges can thus be produced cost-effectively.

At the beginning of the 3D animation, the correct application of the frieze tape is shown. How is it glued? How can air bubbles be removed again? And how is it prepared for the later painting of the ceiling? All of these questions are explained in the 3D animated assembly video.

Further possible uses are presented at the end of the 3D video. For example, how the tape can be used for inspection hatches in the ceiling, or how a wall connection or a shadow gap is made.

Inexpensive 3D animation creation

In terms of 3D technology, it was possible to take over some of the previously created assembly video for this video implementation, which was produced for the same customer. The complete 3D environment, including lighting setup and room design, already existed. 3D models of tools and their complete assembly animations, such as the application of liquid adhesive using a paint roller, could partially be adopted 1 to 1. These only had to be supplemented with new passages. These savings also resulted in low cost of production. What has been created once in 3D can be used again and again.

Animation of hands

In the last third of the video it is shown how the joints of the special ceiling solution of the acoustic ceiling are pasted with a joint tape. This depends on the right hand guidance, which was also implemented in 3D with hands. The animation of hands is time-consuming, since every finger and every joint has to be coordinated with the movement sequences. Normally, this complex implementation can often be dispensed with in 3D animations and only the tools can be animated. In this example, however, it was important to show the hand movements as well.

Representation of correct and incorrect assembly

The videos created should not only show the correct assembly, but also often the wrong or faulty assembly. In order to visually underline the difference, two different icons were used throughout. A green thumbs up for correct assembly and a red thumb down for incorrect implementation. This means that it is always clear what is important in the respective implementation and which typical errors should be avoided.

3D assembly video - joint filler for acoustic ceilings

There are special tube fillers for special ceiling tiles. Simply cut open, into the cartridge gun and into the joint. There are defined drying times, assembly instructions and grinding specifications to be observed. These are explained in detail in the assembly video.

The correction of joints with a subsequent repair is also described. During the 3D animation, tape was animated, which was smeared with the grout and then pulled off the plasterboard.

From the illustrated storyboard to the finished assembly video

At the beginning of the animation creation there is a coordination with the customer. What should be shown? Which assembly steps are important? What should be explained in detail? All of these questions flow into a first rough brief description of the process. An illustrated storyboard is then created on this basis. In this storyboard, all important assembly steps are already shown as they can be seen in the later animation. As a customer, you can see in advance what the later video will look like and, if necessary, incorporate correction requests.
