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?

Generally speaking, 3D view would be rather helpful and visually stimulating for clients as it produces an experience in which all details are laid out in a manner that resembles real life, making it easy to envision the structure as an actualized physical form. On the other hand, 2D view would be most helpful to contractors and all members who are tackling the architectural integrity of a design, such as the engineers.

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

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?

Not always. Sometimes, having designs presented in stylized, altered views provides the viewer with an understanding of the designer's stylistic choices, while also providing an opportunity to view the space through a new lens. In addition, sketchy, more unfinished styles can indicate to a client that a project is unfinished, and thus open to design suggestions and alterations. Lastly, it also allows the designer to take on a new level of creativity in expressing their artistic liberties through the presentation of their work.

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?

Schedule views are useful in that they provide an organized, tabulated view of the materials, fixtures, and elements needed to construct a project. Through various modes of organization and ample ways to tailor a schedule to one’s needs, it can provide the sums of areas (for example, area of all walls or windows in a building) or even calculate the number of specific objects needed in a building (for example, the number of indoor doors throughout a home).
