How an Architect Transformed Weeks-long Processes into Hours with Kaedim

The ‘Image to 3D’ feature was a game-changer, transforming weeks-long processes into mere hours.

About Mathew McGrane

Mathew is an Architect and Artist leading a studio in Southern California. As the Chief Design Officer at Elora, a web3 startup, he is at the forefront of developing innovative metaverse venues for the future of work and collaboration.

Project Overview

Their flagship project, 'The Tree of Life,' is set in the Cornerstone metaverse. It is a collaborative, creative space, inspired by the 'Tree of Life,' symbolizing the interconnectedness of people, ideas, and creativity.

Primary Industry: Architecture and Design.

Inspiration for the Project: The project began as a living portfolio of their architectural work, evolving into crafting world-class architecture in the metaverse, unbounded by physical constraints.

Mission & Goals

We aim to create a destination for diverse events and knowledge sharing, transcending geographical borders.

Impact: Our goal is to foster a learning environment and make education universally accessible.



The main hurdle was translating complex, organic ideas into tangible models.This created constraints not only on 3D production, but the process before it as well: the opportunity to experiment - which is crucial for creative projects.


Kaedim reduced the initial concept phase of a 500-hour project to just hours, enhancing ideation and efficiency significantly. It streamlined the modeling of AI-generated images, allowing more focus on creativity rather than crafting.

Using AI from ideation to mesh, Mathew has not only been able to increase production, he has also been able to be more creative and experimental in his work.


Kaedim's Impact

Evolved Workflow: He now uses Midjourney, Dalle, Photoshop, Kaedim, Sketchup/Blender, and Unreal Engine in sequence.

Improvements: The last six months have shown significant advances in performance, toolsets, customer service, and deliverables.
