3D mounting videos for house installation

Electrical installation explained with 3D animations

The Animations-Maschine has been animating installation material for house construction for Primo GmbH for several years. Regardless of whether it is a smart solution for cable house entry or whether it is plastic boxes for walls and ceilings, each of these products initially only appears as a boring plastic box. However, all possible uses and their easy installation are shown in the animated mounting videos. Ceilings and walls are concreted, cut open and piped. Lights built in and animated. Most of the mounting videos were completed before the actual products. With the help of the CAD data, it was possible to create the videos at a point in time while the tool shop was still busy producing the injection molding tools. This was a great advantage as the videos for the upcoming fair had to be ready.

3D assembly video of an installation housing

How is an installation box for lamps correctly installed in concrete ceilings and concrete walls? What product features and advantages does this installation box have? And which installation pipes and electrical cables can be inserted? These questions are all explained in this 3D assembly video. Illustrated step by step for everyone to understand.

High reality through small details. Small details such as the rust on the iron bars, old concrete dirt on the shuttering boards or a blue dash line scattered with lime make the assembly video look more real and high-quality. Such details are created once and can be used again and again in further assembly videos.

Corrections to CAD construction are not a problem

During the video production, the installation box was still in the final stages of the CAD construction. Shortly before it was finalized, the box was slightly redesigned. These changes could also be incorporated into the finished 3D animation at short notice before the video was finally rendered in high resolution.

A complete assembly video was created for the product launch. In addition to the assembly, the various areas of application and possible uses were shown. For example, the installation box can be mounted on an iron mat with attachable wings or nailed to concrete formwork.

Through a combination of a pure assembly video and a product video, all product features and advantages of the installation box were recorded as a 3D animation at the end of the video.

3D assembly video wall and ceiling connectors in in-situ concrete

Installation pipes can be connected absolutely concrete-tight with wall and ceiling transitions. And that across the connection between wall and ceiling. How exactly these elbows and grommets are installed and for which installation situations they can be used is visualized in this 3D installation video.

Detailed views and sectional views of the inside of the products are also shown, which in this form could only be implemented with great effort as a real shot film. For example, the ideal bending radius when pulling in electrical installation cables is shown in section.

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.

3D mounting video thermal socket for thermal bridge-free electrical installation

The simple installation of the new thermal socket is very easy. Drill a hole in the wall, insert the installation box and foam it with thermal foam. How that looks exactly can be seen in the fitting installation video.

Finished 3D models of tools and machines

Several tools and machines were used in the mounting video shown. Since the Animations-Maschine specializes in the assembly of technical products, there are already a large number of finished 3D models of various tools that could easily be used in this video. There was already a hammer drill, a water spray bottle and a cutter knife from previous animations.

Special tools

A rotary hammer could be purchased as a finished 3D model at low cost from a special provider of 3D models. The wall chaser used, on the other hand, is so special that it cannot be bought as a finished 3D model from any supplier. Therefore, the 3D model was designed and textured by hand. This tool could then also be integrated and animated.

3D mounting video cable carrier for drywall

In this assembly video, a cable carrier including adhesive surface is explained, which offers many advantages for drywall builders, customers and electricians. The drywaller knocks out a hole with a hammer and lets the central mandrel of the cable carrier stick out. This serves as a centering point for the drill bit. Rapid milling without having to measure the assembly points again is guaranteed. As a special technical feature, dust and trickling drilling dirt were added when the hole was milled out.
