Please share your comments on 3 of the following Points to Ponder questions. (Choose 3 of the questions below.)

What types of building information are best portrayed in 3D views?

  • Which stakeholders require 2D views, and why?

Contractors, architects, and subcontractors all benefit from a 2d view. Clients would benefit from a 3D view as it makes it easier to visualize what a building project will actually look like, as well as how they might live in the space.

Give examples of how the building information for a specific location in the project needs to be filtered for different audiences and purposes?

For a constructor, the furnishings of a building are not necessary and instead get in the way. For clients, furnishings are beneficial because it enables them to visualize how they might use the space.

Should your design ideas always be conveyed through photorealistic renders?

  • How does the level of detail in the rendering and its presentation affect the perception of stakeholders reviewing your design?

Photorealistic renders are useful tools when the model matches closely your design vision. Sometimes, I wasn't able to fully match what I was thinking to what rendering tools I had available to me. In such cases, it might be better to show a more less 3D and more conceptual/representational view.

Name some applications where viewing the building and model information in virtual reality or augmented reality would be most beneficial?

  • Are there advantages to using a C.A.V.E as a virtual environment versus VR headsets?

How can schedule views be used to assist with procurement and model-based estimating?
